SAINT MICHAEL, THE ARCHANGEL,

Prince of the heavenly hosts, conqueror of the infernal dragon, you received from God the strength and power to destroy through humility the pride of the powers of darkness.  We implore you, help us to true humility of heart, to unshakeable fidelity to fulfill always the Will of God, and to fortitude in sufferings and trials.  Help us to stand before the judgment seat of God.

SAINT GABRIEL, THE ARCHANGEL,

Angel of the Incarnation, faithful messenger of God, open our ears for even the gentle warnings and appeals of the loving Heart of Our Lord.  Stand ever before us, we implore you, that we may properly understand the word of God, follow and obey it, and fulfill that which God requires of us.  Help us to watchful readiness so that when the Lord comes, He may not find us sleeping.

SAINT RAPHAEL, THE ARCHANGEL,

Arrow and medicine of Divine love, wound our hearts, we implore you, with the burning love of God and let this wound never heal, so that even in daily life we might always remain upon the path of love and overcome all things through love.

HELP US, GREAT AND HOLY BROTHERS, FELLOW-SERVANTS BEFORE GOD.

Protect us from ourselves, from our own cowardice and tepidity, from our self-seeking and avarice, from our envy and mistrust, from our craving for satiation, comfort and recognition.  Free us from the bonds of sin and attachment to worldly things.  Take from our eyes the blindfold we ourselves have put over them so that we need not see the misery around us, but can complacently think about and pity ourselves.  Set the goad of holy restlessness for God in our hearts, so that we cease not to seek God with longing, contrition and love.

Seek in us the Precious Blood of Our Lord which was shed for our sake.  Seek in us the poor, faded, ruined image of God, after which God once formed us in love.  Help us to know and adore God, to love and serve Him.  Help us in the battle with the powers of darkness, who insidiously stalk and oppress us.  Help us, so that none of us may be lost, but that rejoicing, we may one day be united in eternal happiness.  Amen.
