A great friend of very many years asked her extended family to pray for me. A devout young lad of the family, who helps take care of his grandmother, a normal, happy go lucky boy, who was laughing with the family at dinner, totally peaceful and calm and happy, tried to kill himself later, just the other night, with horrifically deadly poison. Miraculously, he survived with a bout of vomiting and care for hours. When asked why he had done this, it was, instead, a demonic voice which answered, with all the usual arrogant rubbish about who is to be in charge. When asked later about this, the young boy was as surprised as everyone, totally bewildered, and had no idea how all this had come about. Indeed, he was shocked, shaking from fear at having come so close to death, and the father of death. Jesus wins out, but, just to say this again:
Some days ago I made a rather urgent request for you prayers, asking you all to invoke Saint Michael, asking that you pray the Saint Michael prayer once for my intentions and then once for you and yours. Many of you have also had Masses offered for me. Thank you.
I would like to repeat this request, asking that after you pray the Saint Michael Prayer for my intentions, when you then also pray this prayer for you and yours, you also include in this latter prayer those who are doing as you are in praying this Saint Michael Prayer. Thanks! — And please, if you would, say an extra Hail Mary for the young boy. Thanks, on his behalf.
Sancte Michael Archangele,
defende nos in proelio;
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
Saint 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 do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan
and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
