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!

Thoughts on Mary, Our Lady, the Mother of God, A gift to us

  When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.”  Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.
John 19: 26-27

Jesus not only gave John the blessing of taking care of His Mother, but Jesus gave humanity His Mother. 
He also gave His Church the gift of His Mother.
His new Church honored and loved her.

Through the years, Mary has appeared to give guidance and counsel to her children. 

“Listen and let it penetrate your heart…do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain.  Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?” (Our Lady’s words to her servant Juan Diego.)

Hail Mary,
Full of grace,
the Lord is with You.
Blessed are you among women,
blessed is the fruit of your womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
and at the hour of our death.

“Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.”
Saint Padre Pio 

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of God.

Oh, My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell.  Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of they mercy.
Taught to the visionaries of Fatima to pray between the mysteries of the rosary.

Mother of God,
Star of the Sea,
Pray for your children.
Pray for me.

"Before, by yourself, you couldn't. Now, you've turned to our Lady, and with her, how easy!" --St. Josemaria Escriva

Do not be afraid to ask the Mother of God to intercede for you.  She will.  She prays for her children everyday before the throne of God.  She will help you.  Jesus cannot say no to His Mother.

"If you ever feel distressed during your day — call upon our Lady — just say this simple prayer: 'Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.' I must admit — this prayer has never failed me."
--Blessed Mother Teresa  

Mama Mary loves her children.  She will give you the courage and strength you need.

We are the Church which honors and esteems Mary.
We are blessed to have her call us her children.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
