Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St Michael the Archangel
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray.
And may thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts,
By the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits
who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
This prayer was composed by Pope Leo XIII after he experienced a horrifying vision on October 13, 1884.
