Novena Prayer

Saint Michael the Archangel, loyal champion of God and His People and of our Community of the Legion of St. Michael, we turn to you with confidence and seek your powerful intercession. For the love of God, Who made you so glorious in grace and power, and for the love of the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of the Angels, be pleased to hear our prayer. You know the value of our souls in the eyes of God. May no stain of evil ever disfigure it beauty. Help us to conquer the evil spirit who tempts us. We desire to imitate your loyalty to God and Holy Mother Church and your great love for God and people. And since you are Godís messenger for the care of His people, we entrust to you this special request:

Consolidated Consecration Prayers of Jesus through Mary, Sacred Heart, Immaculate Heart, and St. Michael

[If this prayer is said in a group, recitation may be shared by various people as indicated]

Leader:

Hail, O Immaculate Mary, living tabernacle of the Divinity, where the Eternal Wisdom willed to be hidden and to be adored by angels and by men! Hail, O Queen of Heaven and earth, to whose empire everything is subject which is under God. Hail, O sure refuge of sinners, whose mercy fails no one. Hear the desires which we have of the Divine Wisdom; and for that end receive the vows and offering which in our lowliness we present to thee.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, filled with infinite love, broken by our ingratitude, pierced by our sins, yet loving us still;

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and tender Mother of all people;

Saint Michael the Archangel, invincible prince of the angelic hosts and glorious protector of the Universal Church and of our Community;

We consecrate ourselves and the St. Elijah Community of the Legion of St. Michael to You, Lord Jesus, through Your mother the Blessed Virgin Mary, to Your Sacred Heart, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and to St. Michael the Archangel.

Person 1:

We, who are faithless sinners, renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Mother, the vows of our Baptism; we renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works, for ourselves and in the name of our Community; and we give ourselves and our Community entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry our cross after Him all the days of our lives, and to carry the cross and mission of our Community as long as He wills it to exist, and to be more faithful to Him than we have ever been before.

Person 2:

Please accept all that we are and all that we have. Take every faculty of our body and soul, and our Community resources. Draw us, day by day, nearer and nearer to Your Sacred Heart, and there, as we can bear the lesson, teach us Your blessed ways.

Person 3:

Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us, our Community, as you wish, to accomplish your designs upon the world.

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, rule over us and our Community, and teach us how to allow the Heart of Jesus to rule and triumph in us and around us, as it has ruled and triumphed in you.

Leader:

Saint Michael, we choose you as our Patron, Protector, and Prince in Spiritual Warfare, and entrust ourselves, the Legion of St. Michael and the St. Elijah Community to your care. Be the guardian of our obligation as children of God, and of the Catholic Church, and as members of the Legion of St. Michael, as again we renounce Satan, his works, and his empty promises. Assist us by your powerful intercession in fulfillment of these sacred promises, so that imitating your courage and loyalty to God, and trusting in your kind help and protection, we may be victorious over the enemies of our Church and of our souls and be united with God in heaven forever.

All: Amen.

Prayer

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirit who prowl through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael, first champion of the Kingship of Christ, pray for us.

God our Father, in a wonderful way You guide the work of Angels and human beings. May those who serve You constantly in heaven keep our lives safe from all harm on earth. Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Litany of St. Michael the Archangel

(Pray on May 1 - 8)

Let Us Pray

Sanctify us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, with Thy holy blessing, and grant us, by the intercession of St. Michael, that wisdom which teaches us to lay up treasures in Heaven by exchanging the goods of this world for those of eternity, Thou Who lives and reigns, world without end. Amen.

Relying, O Lord, upon the intercession of Thy blessed Archangel Michael, we humbly beg of Thee, that the Holy Eucharist in whose presence we kneel, may make our soul holy and pleasing to Thee. Through Christ Our Lord. R. Amen.

Litany of the Saints of our Charism

(Pray on May 9th)

Let Us Pray

May the glorious merits of the Blessed Virgin Mary, of the Archangel Michael, our holy Father Elijah, and of Sts. Ignatius, Montfort, Francis, and Benedict, and all the Saints of our charism make our offerings acceptable to Thee. Grant us Thy grace, O Father, that perfect resignation to Thy Holy Will may be with us, and labor with us, and continue with us to the end. Grant us always to desire and will that which is most acceptable to Thee and which pleases Thee best. Help us to be holy as Thou are holy. Help us to mortify our human nature that we may be clothed with Your divine nature. Let Thy Will be ours, and our will always follow Yours and agree perfectly with it. May all that we do and all that we are be done and lived to Your greater Glory. Amen.
