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!

Where do you meet Jesus Each Day?

Starbucks?  Mass?  The Park?  On a Walk?  At the Adoration Chapel?

We each need a place, a physical place, to meet Him.  As Catholics, we should meet Him and see Him in everything we do and in every word we say, thus we are evangelists, and we serve Him.  Yet, even Jesus went up to the mountain or to a quiet place to pray to the Father. 

I have a special place where I meet Jesus daily.  Yes, I go to Mass daily, except, like today, when I couldn't get out of my drive way because of yesterday's storm, but it's not there that I meet Jesus in "Our Place." I am an adorer at Church when Jesus gazes at His children from the Monstrance, but that's not where I meet Jesus.

The place I meet Jesus daily is in my living room, on the love seat, across from the couch that my dog occupies.  I meet Jesus in this spot everyday.  Even if I'm sick, I seem to find my way down to this love seat.  It's here that I open my heart to have a conversation with Jesus, our brother and Savior.

Jesus hears things that I could never say to my best friend.  He hears things that I need to confess.  He hears things about which I am worried.  He hears me, and He listens.

I sip my tea, my homemade fruit water, or my diet Coke. Jesus hears me.  I weep or cry.  He comforts me.  When I am worried, Jesus gives me peace.  I play Christian music and sing.  He listens, even as I sing.  (He is a good and loving God!)  It is on this love seat that I ask Jesus to speak to me through Sacred Scripture.  Can you imagine?  A love seat!  I meet Jesus here daily for our conversations. 

Where do you meet Jesus?
