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!

They Mysteries of the Rosary - The Luminous Mysteries (The Mysteries of Light)

"Among all the devotions approved by the Church none has been so favored by so many miracles as the devotion of the Most Holy Rosary" (Pope Pius IX).

The Mysteries of Light

The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan
At last, You and John are reunited as the one who came before and the one who is I AM. Although reluctant to do so, John obeyed the command of the Holy Spirit to baptize You and begin Your mission of Salvation in the world. Sweet Jesus, you knew what would happen as you left Your Mother and began Your journey to save us. You knew what the end would be and how painful that end would be for You, yet, You stepped into the waters of the River Jordan and You began Your ministry. Thank You, Most Sacred Heart. Thank You for the Love You gave us! Thank You for the gift of salvation by giving us the ultimate sacrifice of your life. Praise to You, Sweet Holy Jesus! Thank You!

The Wedding at Cana
Were You really giving Your Mother a hard time when you told her, “It’s not my time.”? Yet, it only took a few words from her, and You began Your ministry of miracles by changing the water into wine. Oh, Sweet Jesus, thank You! Later You would give us the greatest miracle by giving us priests who would give us the gifts of Your most precious Body and Blood through the Mass during the consecration. Sweet Jesus, thank You for the gifts of the men who are our priests. Thank You, for this most Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist! Bless and Protect our priests. They were chosen by You. They are also Your Mother’s Sons. Protect them. Bless them, Keep them true to You.

Proclaiming the Kingdom of God and the Call for conversion.
“And He walked among them, curing their illnesses, making them well.” Lord, I know that those are not the exact words, but first You healed and then You said, “Go and sin no more.” You saved the woman caught in adultery. No one would dare to harm her when she was under Your protection. You had the authority of the Chosen One, which You were. You proclaimed the gospel of Love and you asked us to sin no more. Thank You, Sweet Jesus, for this amazing gift. Thank You for Your Love! Thank You for healing us! Thank You for giving us the gift of Salvation.

The Transformation
Oh, my! The Apostles must have been so overcome when they saw You in Your glory! Like those of us who are caught off guard, Peter could only ask if they should build tents for all of You. I love Peter, Lord! No wonder You chose Him to lead Your earthly kingdom. Peter was so human and frail. Like You, it was his fragility that made Him strong. His strength could only come from You, as our strength can only come from You. Jesus, You loved us so much, You gave everything for us, including this gift of the Transfiguration. Someday, we will see You as Your Apostles did on this mountain. Thank You, Jesus, for this gift!!

The Institution of the Eucharist
Oh, Jesus, I can only bow in humble adoration to Y ou! Y ou said that Y ou would not leave us alone. Y ou sent the Holy Spirit to inspire us. You send us holy priests to consecrate bread and water and turn these into Your most Precious Body and Blood. Oh, my Jesus, I am overwhelmed! I can only say, “Thank You.”
