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 Divine Power of God –

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls

Amen

Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prœlio;

Memorare, Coeleste Palmetum 1866

Holy Family crush Serpent, Rembrandt, The Art of Christianity Collection. Used with Permission.

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;

to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen

MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo,

quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia,

tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum.

Ego tali animatus confidentia,

ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio,

coram te gemens peccator assisto.

Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Amen

PREPATORY PRAYERS

AGAINST PERSECUTORS OF HOLY MOTHER CHURCH

CONSECRATION OF ONE’s EXTERIOR GOODS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY


Father Chad Ripperger recommended these two prayers for laity on the US Grace Force podcast on 11-11-2020, the Armistice Day.


This prayer is particularly useful for breaking various forms of oppression. By relinquishing what belongs to us into the hands of the Blessed Virgin, Satan cannot touch them. This is a strong prayer of protection on you and yours


I; (Name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in thy hands the vows of my Baptism;

I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works;

and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom,

to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life,

and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose thee, O Mary,

this day for my Mother and Mistress.

Knowing that I have received rights over all my exterior goods by the promulgation of the Natural Law by the Divine Author,

I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, all of my exterior goods, past, present and future;

I relinquish into thy hands, my Heavenly Mother, all rights over my exterior goods, the fairness, honesty and accuracy of our country and I retain for myself no right of disposing the goods that come to me but leave to thee the entire and full right of disposing of all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God in time and in eternity.

As I now interiorly relinquish what belongs to me exteriorly into thy hands,

I entrust to thee the protection of those exterior goods against the evil one,

so that, knowing that they now belong to thee, he cannot touch them. 

Receive, O good and pious Virgin, this little offering of what little is, in honor of, and in union with, that subjection which the Eternal Wisdom deigned to have to Thy maternity; in homage to the power which both of You have over this poor sinner, and in thanksgiving for the privileges with which the Holy Trinity has favored thee. 

Trusting in the providential care of God the Father and thy maternal care, I have full confidence that thou wilst take care of me as to the necessities of this life and will not leave me forsaken.

God the Father, increase my trust in Thy Son’s Mother;

Our Lady of Fair Love, give me perfect confidence in the providence of Thy Son.

Amen.


SENDING EVIL BACK


Jesus and Mary, I ask that if it be Your Holy Will,

that any curses or evil sent against the leadership of our country and in the Church

to be sent back from whence they came.



(Fr. Chad Ripperger comments that the following prayer may appear harsh, in that it seems to seek evil befall on another, yet it is meant to expose evil and to teach that evil does not win. And, in fact, choosing evil will, eventually, lead to bad repercussions)

PRAYERS TO St. JOSEPH

Patron Saint of Universal Church. (150 years anniversary 2021)


Patron Saint of Fathers, -Families and Married People. 

Head of the Holy Family and Terror of Demons.

The Dream of St Joseph, Jan Luyken, Pieter Mortier, 1703. The Art of Christianity Collection. Used with Permission.

To thee, O blessed Joseph,

we have recourse in our affliction, and having implored the help of thy thrice holy Spouse, we now, with hearts filled with confidence, earnestly beg thee also to take us under thy protection. By that charity wherewith thou wert united to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by that fatherly love with which thou didst cherish the Child Jesus, we beseech thee and we humbly pray that thou wilt look down with gracious eye upon that inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by His blood, and wilt succor us in our need by thy power and strength.


Defend, O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen off-spring of Jesus Christ. Keep from us, O most loving Father, all blight of error and corruption. Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, in this conflict with the powers of darkness. And even as of old thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from the peril of His life, so now defend God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield us ever under thy patronage, that, following thine example and strengthened by thy help, we may live a holy life, die a pious death, and attain to everlasting bliss in Heaven.

Amen

Oratio ad sanctum Josephum

Original prayer: Leo XIII, Quamquam Pluries. 15 aug. 1889    


Ad te, beate Joseph,

in tribulatione nostra confugimus, atque implorato Sponsæ tuæ sanctissimmæ auxilio, patrocinium quoque tuum fidenter exposcimus. Per eam, quæsumus, quæ te cum immaculata Virgine Dei Genitrice conjunxit caritatem, perque paternum, quo Puerum Jesum amplexus es, amorem, supplices deprecamur, ut ad hereditatem, quam Jesus Christus acquisivit sanguine suo, benignus respicias, ac necessitatibus nostris tua virtute et ope succurras.

Tuere, o Custos providentissime divinæ Familiæ, Jesu Christi sobolem electam; prohibe a nobis, amantissime Pater, omnem errorum ac corruptelarum luem; propitius nobis, sospitator noster fortissime, in hoc cum potestate tenebrarum certamine e coelo adesto; et sicut olim Puerum Jesum e summo eripuisti vitæ discrimine, ita nunc Ecclesiam sanctam Dei ab hostilibus insidiis atque ab omni adversitate defende: nosque singulos perpetuo tege patrocinio, ut ad tui exemplar et ope tua suffulti, sancte vivere, pie emori, sempiternamque in coelis beatitudinem assequi possimus.

Amen

Prayer for Religious Freedom


O God Our Creator,

from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.


Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;


Give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.


Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome

— for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us —


We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
By St. Maximilian Kolbe


O Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, (Name…), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you. If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.” Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.


V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.

And when the sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. Very early on the first of the week they came to the sepulcher, the sun having risen.


And they said among themselves:

Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?


And looking up they see that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very great. They entered the sepulcher and saw a young man, sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe; and they were amazed. He says to them:

“Be not amazed.

You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified;

he has risen, he is not here: see the place where they laid him.”


And going out they fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment had seized them; and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid.

“you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you,

and you shall be my witnesses, both in Jerusalem and to the end of the earth.”


And when he had said these things, as they beheld, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, 


”why stand looking towards heaven?

All were astonished, saying:

The fourth Glorious mystery  - quartum mysterium Gloriósa - 


The Assumption of Mary into Heaven  - Assúmptio -  

(1 Thess 4:13-151)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   and   Caritas    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

The Assumption of Virgin, Jan Witoeck after Peter Paul Rubens, 1637.

Princely Collection. GR711. Used with Permission.

But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those that have fallen asleep, that you sorrow not as the rest also who have no hope.


For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,

so also those that have fallen asleep, will God through Jesus bring with him. …

the Lord himself, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,

and with the trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven,

and the dead in Christ shall arise first …

to meet the Lord in the air. so shall we always be with the Lord.


So then comfort one another in these words.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell,

and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy.


After each Mystery follows a short moment of silence to contemplate over the Mystery.“

"keep me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the 5 mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.”

Our Lady of Fatima's apparition on Dec. 10, 1925

Our Father (still on the single Pearl, soon moving along the Chain towards the ten Pearls)

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

The fifth Glorious mystery  - quintum mysterium Gloriósa - 


Mary is Crowned of Heaven  - Coronátio in Caelo -  

(Rev. 12:1, 14:1-5, Isa 6:3)


(We do the Sign of the Cross      Fides,   Spes   and   Caritas    which both opens and closes the sequence of prayer)

And a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;


And I heard a voice from heaven like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.


And they sung a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one was able to learn the song, …


And in their mouth was found no guile;

for they are blameless.


And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”


(still on the single Pearl)
