St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

anyone can fast.
You do NOT need to fast only from food.
You only need to fast from something that has meaning for you.

Fast from cigarettes on Saturday.
Fast from alcoholic beverages on Saturday.
Fast from television on Saturday.
Fast from meat on Saturday.
Fast from gossip on Saturday.
Fast from driving on Saturday.
(Walk where you need to go.)
Fast from your favorite food on Saturday.
Fast from video games on Saturday.
Fast from going out to eat on Saturday.
Fast from sleeping in on Saturday.
(Get up early and pray. )

There are so many ways to fast!
To fast from food is wonderful!
East only one full meal on Saturday.
Cut your portions in half and eat only what is left on Saturday.
Give up deserts on Saturday.
Give up candy on Saturday.
Give up soda pop on Saturday.

If you think fasting is negative then look for the positive.
(Just remember, giving up something special is not negative.)

Go to Mass Saturday morning and pray for peace.
Recite the Rosary for peace on Saturday.
Pray for an hour for peace when you could be doing what you want to do.
Read Sacred Scripture for an hour on Saturday.
Call your parents.
Visit the sick.
Make a visit to Church and pray for peace.
Go to confession and offer this up, with great humility, for peace.
Offer your day for peace.
Recite the Jesus Prayer one time every waking hour.
("Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.")

What else can you do?
Prayer + Fasting

Please join Pope Francis
in prayer for peace in our world,
especially in Syria.
