Prayer Against satan and The Rebellious Angels

PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF HIS HOLINESS POPE LEO XIII


The Holy Father exhorts priests to say this prayer as often as possible, assimple exorcism to curb the power of the devil and prevent him from doing harm. The faithful also may say it in their own name, for the same purpose, as any approved prayer. Its use is recommended whenever action of the devil is suspected, causing malice in men, violent temptations and even storms and various calamities. It could be used assolemn exorcism (an official and public ceremony, in Latin), to expel the devil. It would then be said bypriest, in the name of the Church and only with the Bishop’s permission.


 Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel


In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Most glorious Prince of the Heavenly Armies, Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in “our battle against principalities and powers, against spirits of wickedness in the high places.” Come to the assistance of men whom God has created to His likeness and whom He has redeemed atgreat price from the tyranny of the devil. Holy Church venerates thee as Her guardian and protector; to thee, the Lord has entrusted the souls of the redeemed to be led into Heaven. Pray, therefore, the God of Peace to crush satan beneath our feet, that he may no longer retain men captive and do injury to the Church. Offer our prayers to the Most High, that without delay they may draw His mercy down upon us; take hold of “the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and satan,” bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit “so that he may no longer seduce the nations.”

“He who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” God the Father commands you. † God the Son commands you. † God the Holy Spirit commands you. † Christ, God’s Word made flesh, commands you; † He who to save our race outdone through your envy, “humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death;” He who has built His Church on the firm rock and declared that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her, because He will dwell with Her “all days even to the end of the world.” The sacred Sign of the Cross commands you, † as does also the power of the mysteries of the Christian Faith. † The glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you; † She who by Her humility and from the first moment of Her Immaculate Conception, crushed your proud head. The faith of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and the other Apostles commands you. † The blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints command


 Exorcism Prayer to Purify & Protect Your Home and Family, Business, or Places You Desire.


In the Name of Jesus Christ our God and Lord, strengthened by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Blessed Michael the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all the Saints, (and powerful in the holy authority of our ministry),* we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil.
God arises; His enemies are scattered and those who hate Him flee before Him.
As smoke is driven away, so are they driven; as wax melts before the fire, so the wicked perish at the presence of God.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord, flee bands of enemies.
R. He has conquered, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the offspring of David.
V. May Thy mercy, Lord, descend upon us.
R. As great as our hope in Thee.

We drive you from us, whoever you may be, unclean spirits, all satanic posers, all infernal invaders, all wicked legions, assemblies and sects; in the Name and by the power of Our Lord Jesus Christ, † ** may you be snatched away and driven from the Church of God and from the souls made to the image and likeness of God and redeemed by the Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb. † Most cunning serpent, you shall no more dare to deceive the human race, persecute the Church, torment God’s elect and sift them as wheat. † The Most High God commands you, † He with whom, in your great insolence, you still claim to be equal;
“He who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” God the Father commands you. † God the Son commands you. † God the Holy Spirit commands you. † Christ, God’s Word made flesh, commands you; † He who to save our race outdone through your envy, “humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death;” He who has built His Church on the firm rock and declared that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her, because He will dwell with Her “all days even to the end of the world.” The sacred Sign of the Cross commands you, † as does also the power of the mysteries of the Christian Faith. † The glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you; † She who by Her humility and from the first moment of Her Immaculate Conception, crushed your proud head. The faith of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and the other Apostles commands you. † The blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints command

By no means are we intending to pre-empt the Church on the validity of the apparitions. They are private revelation awaiting the Church’s judgment. Because the Queen of Peace apparitions are ongoing and not yet over, the Church has yet to rule on their authenticity. Caritas of Birmingham, and all associated with it, realize and accept that the final authority regarding the Queen of Peace Medjugorje Apparitions rests with the Holy See in Rome. We at Caritas willingly submit to that judgment. Caritas of Birmingham and its mission is not connected to the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.
