O glorious St. Michael,
guardian and defender of the Church of Jesus
come to the assistance of this Church,
against which the powers of hell
guard with especial care her august Head,
and obtain that for him and for us
the hour of triumph may speedily arrive.
O glorious Archangel St. Michael,
watch over us during life,
defend us against the assaults of the demon,
assist us especially at the hour of death;
obtain for us a favorable judgment,
and the happiness
of beholding God
face to face for endless ages.
May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
