Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

The history of the prayer to St Michael the Archangel, as well as the long and short forms of the prayer, can be found here.

A new holiday

I noticed this at Domestic Vocation on a day I didn't have time to watch it. Then Jay linked to it on a day I did have time.

I hope you have the time to watch it. And if you have some extra time, check out Christine (at either of her blogs) and Jay. They are both great bloggers and well worth a visit.
