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!

7 Quick Takes on Prayer

"There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers."
Saint Teresa of Avila

"A good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of himself, so that those who govern can govern. But what is the best that we can offer to those who govern? Prayer!"
Pope Francis

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
Mother Teresa

"Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you."
St. Augustine

“Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”
Padre Pio

“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
Thérèse de Lisieux

Prayer is the raising of the mind to God.
We must always remember this.
The actual words matter less.”
Pope John XXIII
