Let us Pray to St. Michael for our Country and our Church
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against
the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.


Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord, Psalm 33
