|St Michael in the Japanese style*|
The Mass in the Extraordinary Form next Sunday (29th September) will be at St Benedict's Church, Sketty, Swansea at 3pm.
It is the feast of the Dedication of St Michael the Archangel and Holy Mother Church, being under attack on all sides, needs his intercession perhaps more now than at any other time in history.
St Michael is, of course, next to Our Lady, the main opponent to Satan and this prayer is the one to pray....
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. Amen
Holy Michael Archangel, defend us in the day of 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 down into hell Satan and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
