Arise God, may His enemies be scattered and those who hate
Him flee from His presence.
As smoke disperses, so may they disperse; as wax melts before the
fire, so will the impious perish before God.
Lord, fight against those who attack me; combat against
those who wage war against me.
May those who persecute me to death suffer defeat and be shamed.
Return the sword full of confusion to those who plot my harm. May they be like dust
before the wind when the Angel of the Lord destroys them.
May their path be dark and slippery, when the Angel of the Lord persecutes them.
Because without motive they tended webs of death, without reason they set mortal
traps for me.
May an unforseen disaster surprise them, may the net they hid entangle them; may they fall
in the same trap they set for me.
My soul rejoices with the Lord and will enjoy its salvation. Glory be to the Father,
to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and always, world
without end. Amen.
Prayer to Saint Michael Archangel
Most glorious Prince of the Celestial Militia, Saint Michael the
Archangel, defend us in the fight we maintain combating "against the principalities and
powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the malignant spirits
dispersed through the airs" (Ephesians, 6, 12).
Come to the assistance of "men whom God has created incorruptible in His image and likeness"
(Wisdom 2, 23)
and rescued at such "a high price" (1Corinthians, 6, 20)
from the tyranny of the devil.
With the Hosts of the Good Angels fight today the battles of the Lord, as from time inmemorial You
fought against Lucifer, leader of haughtiness and fighter against his own apostate angels. They all cannot
prevail and have lost their places in Heaven. "The great dragon was cast down, the ancient serpent named
devil and Satan, the seducer of the entire world; he was precipitated to the earth and with him all his
angels also fell" (Apocalypse 12, 8-9).
From here it is that the ancient enemy and homicidist has arisen with vehemence. Disguised as the
"angel of light" (2 Corinthians, 11, 14) with the escort of all his malignant spirits he surrounds
and invades the entire earth, and is installed in all places, with the purpose to erase therein the
Name of God and of His Christ, to attack and snatch the souls destined for the crown of eternal glory, to
destroy and lose them for ever. As the most filthy torrent of evil, the malignant dragon poured over those
men with depraved minds and corrupted hearts, the venom of his malice: the spirit of lying, of impiety and
of blasphemy; the lethal breath of lust, of all vices and iniquities.
Those enemies most crafty and sly have filled with bitterness and sadness the Church, spouse of the
Immaculate Lamb. They have given Her wormwood to drink; they have placed their impious hands over everything
that for Her is most dear. Where the Seat of Saint Peter and the Cathedral of the Truth has been erected to be
a light for the nations, they have erected the throne of domination of impiety betting that with luck, having
struck down the pastor, they can disperse their congregation.
Oh invincible champion, help the people
of God against the perversity of the spirits that attack them and give them the victory!
The Holy Church venerates you as Her guardian, patron and protector; be the glory that you are as Her defender
against the toxic terrestrial and infernal powers; God has entrusted to you the souls of the redeemed
to place them in the state of their deserved supreme happiness. Plead to the God of Peace that He crush Satan
beneath our feet, so that he may no longer retain men captive nor harm Your Church. Offer our prayers to the
Most High so that without any delay the mercies of the Lord may descend on us (Psalsm 78, 8),
and hold captive the
dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan and, once enchained, cast him into the abyss so that he may never again be able to seduce the nations (Apocalypse 20).
After this, confident in your protection and patronage, with the sacred authority of the Holy Mother Church,
we dispose ourselves to reject the pestilence of the diabolical frauds, confident and secure in the Name of Jesus Christ,
Our God and Lord.
Here is the Holy Cross of the Lord! Be gone, flee, enemy powers.
R. The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered.
May Your mercy, Lord, come over us.
R. As we hope in You.
Lord, listen to our prayer.
R. And may our clamor reach You.
May the Lord be with you.
R. And with Your Spirit.
Let us Pray
God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we invoke Your Holy Name and we implore suplicatingly Your clemency so that,
by the intercession of the always Immaculate and Virgin Mary Mother of God, of the Archangel Saint Michael, of Saint
Joseph, Spouse of the Most Holy Virgin, of the Apostles Peter and Paul and of all the Saints, that You deign to lend us
Your efficacious aid against Satan and all the putrid spirits that roam throughout the world so as to harm the human
race and for the perdition of souls. Amen.
(At the "" make the sign of the Cross)
We exorcize you, all malignant spirit, satanic power, attacks of the infernal adversary, legion,
concentration and diabolical sect, in the Name and Virtue of Our Lord Jesus
leave and flee from the Church of God,
from souls created in the image of God and redeemed by
the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb.
From now on, do not venture, most perfidious serpent, to deceive the elect and
sift them like wheat.
The Most High God commands this to you, to whom, in your
insolent arrogance you still pretend to resemble, "He who wants all men to be saved
and to come to the knowledge of the truth" (2 Timothy, 2).
God the Father commands you.
God the Son commands you.
God the Holy Ghost commands you.
The Majesty of Jesus
Christ, God’s Eternal Word made man, commands you.
He, Who to save our race, which became lost due to your envy, "humbled Himself,
becoming obedient unto death" (Philippians, 2, 8);
He, Who has built His Church on firm rock and revealed that the
powers of hell would never prevail against Her, because He will dwell
with Her all the days until the end of the world" (Saint Matthew, 28, 20).
The sacred Sign of the Holy
Cross commands you,
and also the virtue of All the Mysteries of the Christian Faith.
The august Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you
by her humility from the first moment of her Immaculate
Conception, crushed your proud head.
The faith of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and of all the other Apostles
The blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints
Thus, cursed dragon and all diabolical legions, we adjure you by the
God, by the True
by the Holy
"Who so loved the world that He handed over His only begotten Son, so that
everyone who believes in Him will not perish but live the everlasting life"
(Saint John, 3);
stop deceiving human creatures and feeding them the
poison of eternal perdition; stop harming the Church
and setting traps against
Begone, Satan, inventor and master of all fallacy, enemy of the salvation of men.
Place yourself before Jesus
Christ in Whom you have found none of your works.
Place yourself before the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the same One acquired
Christ with His Blood.
Humble yourself below the All-Powerful Hand of God. Tremble and flee as we invoke
the Holy and terrible Name of Jesus, before which all hells tremble,
to which the Virtues, Powers and Dominations of the Heavens submit,
which the Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly with voices saying:
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of the Armies.
O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto You.
May the Lord be with You.
R. And with Your Spirit.
Let us pray
God of Heaven and of the earth, God of Angels, God of Archangels, God of Patriarchs,
God of Prophets, God of Apostles, God of Martyrs, God of Confessors, God of Virgins,
God Who has power to give life after death and rest after work, because there is
no other God outside of You, nor can there be any other than Yourself, Creator of all
things, visible and invisible, of whose reign there shall be no end: we humbly
supplicate to You that Your glorious Majesty may deem to free us efficiently and
guard and heal us, keep us healthy, safe and sound from all power, chains, lies and malice of
the infernal spirits. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen
From the snares of the devil,
R. Deliver us, O Lord.
Make it be that Your Church serve You with secure liberty,
R. We beg You to hear us.
Deign to humble all the enemies of Your Church,
R. We implore You: hear us.
(Holy water is then sprinkled in the place and on those present where we have prayed this prayer.)
Lord, do not remember our wrongdoings nor those of our parents; do not take revenge for our sins (Tobias 3, 3).
