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!

Meditaions on the Most Holy Rosary - The Glorious Mysteries

"We do not hesitate to affirm again publicly that we put great confidence in the Holy Rosary for the healing of evils of our times" (Pope Pius XII).

The Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection
Oh, sweet Jesus! You rose! When the women came to take care of what had been Your frail body, ready to defy the Romans and wondering how they would push away the stone, the angel announced to them that You had risen as You had said You would. You gave to these women the gift of carrying the good news to the apostles who remained in hiding, fearful that the punishment meted out to You would also be theirs. When the women came to tell them that they had seen the angel, they didn’t believe. Finally, they were

willing to see the tomb in which You had been laid. When they saw Your burial garments, they believed. Lord help us with our unbelief! Thank You!

The Ascension
It was time, Sweet Jesus, it was time for You to sit at Your Father’s Right Hand and send the Holy Spirit to Your infant church. Mother Mary would still be with the apostles to help nurture the church as she had nurtured You. Again, You led Your apostles to the place where You would return home and You promised them the gift of the Holy Spirit. Jesus, You had given so much, yet You give more! Thank You for all You have given us! Thank You for the gift of salvation! Thank You for the gift of Your Mother! How can you love us so much? Oh, Jesus! We adore You!

The Descent of the Holy Spirit
At last, Holy Spirit, we meet You! Even though You have been with us through the course of salvation, You come to the frightened apostles to give them strength and courage. After You filled them with Your graces, they preached and gave witness to the life and love of Jesus and the Father. The proclaimed the gift of Salvation to all the world. Holy Spirit, thank You. We praise You and we adore You!

The Assumption of Mary
The time had to come when Mother Mary’s mission in life was over. The time had to come when Our Dearest Lady would be with her Son forever to nurture her children and bring home to Him as many of her children as she could. Dearest Mother, Your life was based on faith and trust in God. Thank you for being willing to take these leaps of faith out of love for your children. How did you feel when you saw your Son next to the Father in His glory? Sweet Mary, thank you for the sacrifices you made and for trusting in God to lead you through the good and the bad.

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth
Oh, sweet Mary, now, not only our mother, but the Queen of Heaven and Earth! You were crowned by the Father and the Son to reign in heaven and on earth as our Queen. Dearest Mother, thank you for your fiat. Thank you for giving life to Jesus. Through you, the Father began to complete His work of salvation. Thank You, Heavenly Father! Thank You, our brother, Jesus! Thank you, Mary, the Mother of God!
