Novena to Saint Michael the Archangel starts September 20th ending September 28th, vigil of the Feast of Saint Michael.


Novena to St. Michael

Glorious Saint Michael,

guardian and defender

of the Church of Jesus Christ,

come to the assistance of His followers,

against whom the powers of hell are unchained.

Guard with special care our Holy Father,

the Pope, and our bishops, priests,

all our religious and lay people,

and especially the children.

Saint Michael,

watch over us during life,

defend us against the assaults of the demon,

and assist us especially at the hour of death.

Help us achieve the happiness

of beholding God face to face

for all eternity. Amen.

Saint Michael,

intercede for me with God

in all my necessities, especially….

“the intention is stated here”

Obtain for me a favorable outcome

in the matter I recommend to thee.

Mighty prince of the heavenly host,

and victor over rebellious spirits,

remember me for I am weak and sinful

and so prone to pride and ambition.

Be for me, I pray,

my powerful aid in temptation and difficulty,

and above all do not forsake me

in my last struggle with the powers of evil.

Amen.

Wanted: One million Americans to pray Pro-Life Rosary on May 3rd

Memphis, Tenn., Mar 28, 2008 / 03:29 am (CNA).- The Saint Michael the Archangel Organization is attempting to organize one million people in the United States to pray the Rosary for unborn babies on Saturday, May 3.

Organizers of the prayer event, called One Million Rosaries for Unborn Babies, are asking participants to pray during the same 60-minute time span, beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern Time.

Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, said, “The primary way to stop the killing of unborn babies is not by way of politics and is not by way of education.”

“The person battling the ‘Culture of Death’ is primarily in a spiritual battle and needs to use spiritual weaponry.”, he continued.

“The Rosary is a powerful spiritual weapon, and I hope there will be at least one million people in the United States taking hold of their Rosaries on May 3.”

The organization is asking Pope Benedict XVI to re-establish the practice of offering prayers such as the Hail Mary and the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel after Mass.

The organization also asks that these prayers be offered for the intention of ending the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn babies. Participants can register for the event at:
