'Neath St. Michael's shield

Maybe I’m being melodramatic, but I believe that recourse to St. Michael was never so necessary. A friend of mine from Ireland recently chided me saying, ‘you’ve not given much attention to your friend St. Michael on your blog, why don’t you put together St. Michael resources? There’s so much fake con artist angel stuff about.’
So, here is a short YouTube video which the official St. Michael prayer, the prayer that we are exhorted to say every day.
The above video has some great clips of St. Michael, and I’ve read a lot of accounts in the Tan book ‘Neath St. Michael’s Shield of how efficacious and miraculous images of St. Michael are when used in spiritual warfare.
The prayer in latin; Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in praelio. Contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur. Tuque princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen.

 If anyone  wanted (literally) to be ‘neath St. Michael, then you could do worse than these t-shirts.  http://www.printfection.com/tctees/St-Michael/_s_9190

For more in-depth prayer to St. Michael, the chaplet of St. Michael involves praying to each of the nine choirs of heavenly angels, and takes about twelve minutes to recite.  I’ve said it for the past six years. I find it useful to entrust the day’s tasks to the different choirs.


  1. The prayer to St Michael is a really important one and all the members of Opus Dei are encouraged to say it (privately) after Mass every day during their thanksgiving. Alan Robinson

I do not believe The Third Secret of Fatima came to pass with the attempted assassination of John Paul II in 1981

Our Lady appeared on the 13th of the month at Fatima so we may avoid the fate of Judas
