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!

Part 1 of the series: Women of the Bible I would like to meet.


Of course, first on my list of women from Sacred Scripture that I would like to list is:

Our Mother Mary.

I think, other than the Trinity, I would love to meet her.
I would like to sit down and have a glass of iced tea with her and some cookies.
I don't know if she likes coffee, but I don't, so I didn't include that in my list of questions for her.

I'd love to sit under and olive tree with her and feel the the warm breeze on our faces.
I would love to sit and pray with her.
Perhaps, even an angel might visit?

I have so many questions for her.

 
 
 
 
Here's what I would like to learn.

 
Were you afraid? 
 
Did St. Gabriel surprise you?
 
What did St. Gabriel look like?
 
How did you talk your parents into allowing you to go visit Elizabeth and Joachim?
 
How did you feel when you saw Elizabeth?
 
How did you feel when Elizabeth told you that her baby kicked when he recognized your Son?
 
 
 Were you even in more awe of God?
 
Did you help to deliver John?

Traveling must have been difficult for you, how did you do it?
 
When you got home, how did your parents react when they found out they were going to be grandparents?
 
Were they upset or did they welcome your new baby?
 
 Was your pregnancy with Jesus, an easy one?

Did you get morning sickness? 
 
What did Joseph say when you told him you were having a baby? 
 
Were you afraid that he might reject you and your baby?
 
When you became Joseph's wife, did you have a big wedding?
 
Did all the villagers attend your wedding?
 
What was your life like as a woman 2000 years ago?
 
You and Joseph were required to go to Bethlehem.  Were you afraid when you and Joseph had to leave?

You must have been in labor when you found a stable to give birth to the Son of God.  Was this humiliation for you?

Was Jesus a good baby?

Did he sleep the night early or did he keep you awake?

How did you feel when the shepherds came to visit?

How did you feel when the wise men came to visit?

When you returned home, did the ladies of the village coo and kiss Jesus?

Was Jesus a beautiful child? 

Did He have fun with the other children in the village? 
 
Did he play with his friends or did he work with Joseph?
 
Did you see angels around your Son? 
 
Did you talk with angels about your Son? 
 
How did the village react to your Son? 
 
Was Jesus tall? 
 
Was he popular in the village?
 
Did He go to dances and parties in the village?
 
Did he have a pet?
 
What was Jesus' favorite food that you made?
 
Did Jesus help you cook in the kitchen?
 
Did you pray as a family daily?
 
Did you absolutely adore Your Son?
 
Blessed Mother, thank you for answering my questions.
 
I hope to meet you in heaven and sit with you under a tree,
 
drink some special tea,
 
and  
 
listen to what you have to say.

  1. Great questions. You envision it under a tree. Now that you have me thinking about it I picture sitting with her at a formal party, sort of like the wedding at Cana, and asking her these types of questions. :)
