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!

  1. "Fast. Yes, I said fast." This is where I blow it, Mallory. And it's probably what I need the most. Not that I never fast - I do but not very often (meaning food fasts).

    This is a great saint making list! Thanks, Mallory!
