Feast of Mary Help of Christians

Auxilium Christianorum

May 24


The members of the Auxilium Christianorum should always bear in mind the reality of our state as members of the Church living in this world.

Despite St. Paul's teaching, many Catholics do not take seriously their obligation to wage war against the demonic forces. It is for this reason the Association of the Auxilium Christianorum was founded.

Prayers Offered for the Members of the Auxilium Christianorum

 

 

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.

R. Who made heaven and earth.

 

Most gracious Virgin Mary, thou who wouldst crush the head of the serpent,

protect us from the vengeance of the evil one.

We offer our prayers, supplications, sufferings and good works to thee so that thou may purify them,

sanctify them and present them to thy Son as a perfect offering.

May this offering be given so that the demons that influence or seek to influence the members of the Auxilium Christianorum do not know the source of their expulsion and blindness.

Blind them so that they know not our good works.

Blind them so that they know not on whom to take vengeance.

Blind them so that they may receive the just sentence for their works.

Cover us with the Precious Blood of thy Son so that we may enjoy the protection which flows from His Passion and Death.

We ask this through the same Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

St. Michael Prayer:

Sancte Michael Archángele,

defénde nos in prælio;

contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.

Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;

tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,

qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,

divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

Ámen


Guardian Angel Prayer:

Angele Dei,

qui custos es mei,

me tibi commissum pietate superna,

illumina, custodi, rege, et guberna.

Amen


Our Father:

Pater noster, qui es in caelis:

sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;

adveniat Regnum Tuum;

fiat voluntas Tua,

sicut in caelo, et in terra.            

Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;

et dimitte nobis debita nostra,

Sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;

et ne nos inducas in tentationem;

sed libera nos a malo.

Amen


Hail Mary:

Ave Maria, gratia plena;

Dominus tecum:

benedicta tu in mulieribus,

et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,

ora pro nobis peccatoribus,

nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.

Amen


Glory Be:

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.

Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum.

Amen
