Prayer to St Michael, Archangel
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of 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 down into Hell, Satan, and all wicked spirits
Who wander through the world, for the ruin of souls.
Wishing all our readers and bloggers, a very happy Feast of St Michael, Archangel – especially our bloggers Michael and Michaela!
