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!

It's so Easy...

"Love God above all else."

 Communicate with the
Divine Trinity
in prayer.

Give permission to God to love you.
(God will only work with your permission.)

Tell God you love Him.
(Believe it or not, God likes to be told He's loved.)

Open your heart to God.
(He knows what's been going on in your life.  Like anyone who is seeking a relationship with you, God wants you to share your life with Him.  It's only normal.)

Fill your heart with God.
(God is love.  He wants to fill your heart with His Love.  Ask Him to do just that.  He will not refuse you His
Sacred Heart.)

Seek to do only the Will of God. 
(God is love.  God is Truth.  God is unchanging.)

Love Your Neighbor as Yourself.

Who is my neighbor?
(My family.  The people across the street.  The driver in the car next to me.  The clerk at the gas station.   Our beloved Pope Francis. The terrorist who is a suicide bomber. (Yes) The person who cut you off in traffic.  I think you get the idea.)

How do I love my neighbor as myself?

Treat your neighbor as you would want to be treated.
Forgive your neighbor.  (Sometimes we have to forgive at a distance.  Remember, we have to love ourselves, too.)
 Be kind to others.
Be patient with others.
Perform acts of Mercy.
Imitate Jesus.
 (Read Sacred Scripture (the Bible) daily.)
Love yourself.
Be kind to yourself.
Be patient with yourself.
Develop compassion for others.
What you do for others, do for yourself.
Easy Peasy?
No, not at all.
Worth it?

Heaven awaits us.
