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!

The Gifts of the Catholic Church

Our Catholic Church is so wonderful!
Our Church reaches out to us, 
she offers us great graces by which we can grow closer to
We have the liturgical seasons,
including Ordinary time in which nothing is ordinary.
We have the seasons of

We have the rich and mystical history of the Catholic Church.

We have the grace giving Sacraments of the Catholic Church.

We have a loving Pope who has opened the doors of Mercy for us.

We have the Magisterium of the Church which guides us as we journey through life.

We have the prayers of the church: the Rosary, novenas, and  music.

We have the saints of the church who were once sinners.

We have the gift of Purgatory as revealed through our Church.

We have the gift of doctrines which will not be changed.  Truth cannot be changed.

We have the gift of Mary, our Mother.

We have the gift of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, who gave His life that all might live.

Most importantly,  the sacrifice of Calvary, the Gift of Salvation, the Lamb of God, becomes the gift of God to us, when the bread and wine offered during Mass are consecrated into  the living Body and Blood of Jesus in the Eucharist.
The real Presence is there for us to adore and worship.
Our God, the Living God, the second person of the Divine Trinity.

In an age when materialism, secularism, paganism run rampant, we have our Lord and Savior alive in our Churches.  Let us run to meet Him in adoration and the Mass.

Oh, Lord, I am not worthy.
Jesus, I trust in You!
