There are increasing assaults being directed against the faith and consciences of Catholics in this country, and our bishops have asked us to pray for the freedom of the Church. Let us enlist the help of St. Michael the Archangel, by using this prayer daily:
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
