Saint Michael, protect us!

In these times of increased persecution of Christians, Michael, a poster on Father Joe Jenkins' blog, reminds us to pray the powerful St. Michael's Prayer.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness
and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou, oh prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, cast into hell,
Satan, and all the evil spirits
that prowl about the world,
seeking the ruin of souls.

that prayer is very powerful, and raises the hair on my arms when it comes to the point of saint michael by the power of God cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits. that really raises the hair on my arms because God is so just and so powerful and so righteous and this prayer can save souls from the devil! iam in awe of God!!!!!! no wonder the hair on my arms is raised! iam in total awe of Him who lives and reigns forever and ever!!!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
