Saint Michael The Archangel
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio;
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperat illi Deus; supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae coelestis,
Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem
animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle,
be our safeguard and protection 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,
thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
The Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael
