MICHAEL
and all the HOLY ANGELS

Novena Prayer
V: O all ye Holy Angels, who contemplate unceasingly the uncreated
beauty of the Divinity, in company with our ever glorious Queen,
R: We present and offer to you this novena not only as a means of
obtaining favors
V: (here specify your request), but also as a reparation for our past
ingratitude, and that of all men.
R: Deign to accept it, O amiable Spirits, in union with the love and
devotion of such saints as were especially devout to you, and obtain
for us the grace to spend this life fervently that it may be the
commencement of that blessed life which we hope to live forever
with you in heaven.
V: Let us pray. O God, who with wonderful order has regulated the functions of angels and men,
grant that those who always assist before Thy throne in heaven may defend our lives here on
earth, through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity
of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end.
R: Amen.
✙ Prayer of the Day ✙

V: St. Michael, the Archangel,


R: Defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God

into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
V: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

R: Be mindful of us, here and everywhere, and always pray to the Son of God for us.
V: I will praise Thee, O God, in the sight of Thy Angels.
R: I will adore Thee in Thy holy Temple and I will confess Thy Name.
V: Let us pray. O God, Who hast in an admirable order disposed the ministry of angels and of
men, grant in Thy goodness that our life on earth may be protected by those who in heaven
always assist before Thy throne ready to do Thy will. Through Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
R: Amen.
