Ad S. Michaëlem Archangelum Precatio
Precatio.
Princeps gloriosíssime Cæléstis milítiæ, Sancte Michaël Archángele, defénde nos in prælio advérsus príncipes et potestátes, advérsus mundi rectóres tenebrárum harum, contra spirituália nequítiæ, in cæléstibus.(Ephes. 6). Veni in auxílium hóminum; quos Deus ad imáginem similitúdinis suæ fecit (Sap. 2.), et a tyránnide diáboli emit prétio magno. (1 Cor. 6.). Te custódem et patrónum sancta venerátur Ecclésia; tibi trádidit Dóminus ánimas redemptórum in supérna felicitáte locándas.  Deprecáre Deum pacis, ut cónterat sátanam sub pédibus nostris, ne ultra váleat captívos tenére hómines, et Ecclésiæ nocére. Offer nostras preces in conspéctu Altíssimi, ut cito antícipent nos misericórdiæ Dómini, et apprehéndas dracónem, serpéntem antíquum, qui est diábolus et sátanas, et ligátum mittas in abýssum, ut non sedúcat ámplius gentes. (Apoc. 20.)

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Prayer.
O Glorious Prince of the celestial hosts, Saint Michæl the Archangel, protect and defend us in the conflict which we have to sustain against Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places (Ephesians 6:12). Come to the rescue of men, whom God has created to His image and likeness (Wisdom 2:23), and whom He has redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the Devil. (1 Corinthians 6:20). It is thou whom Holy Church venerates as her guardian and her protector, thou whom the Lord has charged to conduct redeemed souls into Heaven.  Pray, therefore, the God of peace to subdue Satan beneath our feet, that he may no longer retain men captive nor do injury to the Church.  Present our prayers to the Most High, that without delay they may draw His Mercy down upon us and seize the dragon, the old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan; (Apocalypse 20:2). bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit ...that he (may) no more seduce the nations (Apocalypse 20:3).

Exorcismus
In nómine Jesu Christi Dei et Dómini nostri, intercedénte Immaculáta Virgine Dei Genítrice María, Beáto Michaële Archángelo, beátis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo et ómnibus Sanctis, et sacra ministérii nostri auctoritáte confísi, ad infestatiónes diabólicæ fraudis repelléndas secúri aggrédimur.
.

Exorcism
In the Name of Jesus Christ, Our God and Lord, by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, of Blessed Michæl the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all of the Saints, and confident of the authority of Our Sacred Ministry, We  confidently undertake to repulse the Diabolical attacks and deceits.

Psalmus 67
Exsúrgat Deus, et dissipéntur inimíci ejus, et fúgiant qui odérunt eum, a fácie ejus. 
 
 

Sicut déficit fumus, defíciant; sicut fluit cera a fácie ignis, sic péreant peccatóres a fácie Dei. (Psalm 67).
....


Psalm 67
Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His Face. 
.
.As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God (Psalm 67:2-3).

V.Ecce Crucem Dómini, fúgite, partes advérsæ.
.R.Vicit Leo de tribu Juda, radix David. 
.

V.  Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos.
R.  Quemádmodum sperávimus in te.


V.Behold the Cross of the Lord.  Flee, bands of enemies.
R.  The Lion of the Tribe of Juda, the Offspring of David, hath conquered.

V.  May Thy Mercy descend upon us.
R.  As great as our hope in Thee.


Exorcizámus te, omnis immúnde spíritus, omnis satánica potéstas, omnis incúrsio infernális adversárii, omnis légio, omnis congregátio et secta diabólica, in nómine et virtúte Dómini nostri Jesu + Christi, eradicáre et effugáre a Dei Ecclésia, ab animábus ad imáginem Dei cónditis ac pretióso Divini Agni sánguine redémptis. + Non ultra áudeas, serpens callidíssime, decípere humánum genus, Dei Ecclésiam pérsequi, ac Dei eléctos excútere et cribráre sicut tríticum. + Imperat tibi Deus altíssimus,  + cui in magna tua supérbia te símilem habéri adhuc præsúmis; qui omnes hómines vult salvos fíeri, et ad agnitiónem veritátis veníre. (l. Tim.  2.)  Imperat tibi Deus Pater;    imperat tibi Deus Fílius;  imperat tibi Deus Spíritus Sanctus.  + Imperat tibi Christus, ætérnum Dei Verbum caro factum,  + qui pro salúte géneris nostri tua invídia pérditi, humiliávit semetípsum factus obédiens usque ad mortem (Phil. 2.); qui Ecclésiam suam ædificávit supra firmam petram et portas ínferi advérsus eam numquam esse prævalitúras edíxit, cum ea ipse permansúrus ómnibus diébus usque ad consummatiónem sæculi. (Matth. xxviii 20.) Imperat tibi sacraméntum Crucis, + omniúmque Cristiánæ fidei Mysteriórum virtus. + Imperat tibi excélsa Dei Genitrix Virgo María, + quæ superbíssimum caput tuum a primo instánti Immaculátæ Conceptiónis in sua humilitáte contrívit.  Imperat tibi fides Sanctórum Apostolórum Petri et Pauli ceterorúmque Apostolórum. + Imperat tibi Mártyrum sanguis, ac pia Sanctórum et Sanctárum ómnium intercéssio.  + .
..

We Exorcize you, all unclean spirits, all Satanic powers, all infernal adversaries, all wicked legions, all Diabolical assemblies and sects.  In the Name and by the Virtue of Our Lord Jesus  + Christ, may you be eradicated and driven from the Church of God, from the souls conformed to the image of God and redeemed by the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb. No longer dare, cunning serpent, to deceive the human race, to persecute God’s Church, and to strike God's elect and to sift them as wheat.+ The Most High God commands you,+ to Whom in your great pride you thus presumed yourself equal; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the Truth. (1 Timothy 2:4). God + the Father commands you; God + the Son commands you; God the Holy + Ghost commands you. + Christ, the Eternal Word of God made flesh, commands you;+ Who, to save our race lost through your malice, humbled Himself, becoming obedient unto death (Philippians 2:8) Who has built His Church on the firm Rock and declared that the gates of Hell shall never prevail against her, because He dwells with her all days, even to the consummation of the world (Matthew 28:20). The Sacred Mystery of the Cross+ commands you, as does all the power of the Mysteries of the Holy Christian Faith. + The glorious Virgin Mary, the Mother of God commands you, + who, by her profound humility, crushed your proud head from the first instant of her Immaculate Conception.  The faith of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and the other Apostles commands you.+ The blood of the Martyrs, and the pious intercession of all of the Holy Men and Holy Women command you.

Ergo, draco maledícte et omnis légio diabólica, adjurámus te per Deum + vivum, per Deum + verum, per Deum + sanctum, per Deum, + qui sic....  diléxit mundum, ut Fílium suum unigénitum daret, ut omnis qui credit in eum non péreat, sed hábeat vitam ætérnam: (Joan. 3.): cessa decípere humánas creatúras, eísque ætérnæ perditiónis venénum propináre: désine Ecclésiæ nocére et ejus libertáti láqueos injícere. Vade, sátana, invéntor et magíster omnis falláciæ, hostis humánæ salútis. Da locum Christo, in quo nihil invenísti de opéribus tuis: da locum Ecclésiæ Uni, Sanctæ, Cathólicæ, et Apostólicæ, quam Christus ipse acquisívit sánguine suo. Humiliáre sub poténti manu Dei; contremísce et éffuge, invocáto a nobis Sancto et terríbili Nomine Jesu, quem ínferi tremunt, cui Virtútes Cælórum et Potestátes et Dominatiónes subjéctæ sunt; quem Chérubim et Séraphim indeféssis vócibus laudant, dicéntes: Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
.

Thus, cursed Dragon and all diabolical Legions, We adjure you by the Living + God, by the True + God, by the Holy + God, by the God+ Who so loved the world, as to give His only-begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him may not perish but may have life everlasting (John 3:16) to cease deceiving human creatures, and setting before them the venom of eternal perdition: to stop harming the Church and hindering her freedom. Begone, Satan, inventor and master of all deceit, enemy of mankind’s salvation. Give place to Christ, in Whom you have found none of your works; give place to the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, which Christ Himself acquired with His Blood. Stoop beneath the powerful hand of God; tremble and flee at the invocation of the Holy and Terrible Name of Jesus, which causes Hell to tremble, to which the Virtues of Heaven and the Powers and Dominations are subject; Whom the Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly, saying: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of Sábaoth.

V.Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.
R.  Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R.  Et cum spíritu tuo.

V.   O Lord, hear my prayer. 
R.  And let my cry come unto Thee.
V.  May the Lord be with thee. 
R.  And with thy spirit.

Oremus
Deus Cæli, Deus terræ, Deus Angelórum, Deus Archangelórum, Deus Patriarchárum, Deus Prophetárum, Deus Apostolórum, Deus Mártyrum, Deus Confessórum, Deus Vírginum, Deus qui potestátem habes donáre vitam post mortem, réquiem post labórem: quia non est Deus præter te, nec esse potest nisi tu, Creátor ómnium visibílium et invisibílium, cujus regni non erit finis: humíliter majestáti glóriæ tuæ supplicámus, ut ab omni infernálium spirítuum potestáte, láqueo, deceptióne et nequítia nos poténter liberáre, et incólumes custodíre dignéris. Per Christum Dóminum nostrum..
R. Amen.

Let Us Pray
God of Heaven, God of Earth, God of Angels, God of Archangels,  God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets, God of Apostles, God of Martyrs, God of Confessors, God of Virgins, God Who hast power to give life after death and rest after work: for there is no other God than Thee, nor can there be except you, the Creator of all things visible and invisible, of Whose reign there shall be no end: we humbly supplicate Thy Glorious Majesty, to deliver us by Thy power from all the wickedness of the infernal spirits, from their snares and deception and to protect us by  Thy Power and preserve us safe and sound. Through Christ Our Lord. 
R. Amen.

V.Ab insídiis diáboli. 
R.  Líbera nos, Dómine.

V. Ut Ecclésiam tuam secúra tibi fácias libertáte servíre. 
R. Te rogámus, audi nos.

V. Ut inimícos sanctæ Ecclésiæ humiliáre dignéris.
R. Te rogámus, audi nos.


V.  From the snares of the Devil. 
R. Deliver us, O Lord.

V.  That Thy Church may serve Thee in peace and liberty. 
R. We beseech Thee to hear us. 

V.  That Thou wouldst crush down all enemies of Thy Church. 
R. We beseech Thee to hear us.


Et aspergatur locus aqua benedicta.

Holy Water is sprinkled in the place.
Precatio ad Sancte Michaël Archangele
 
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in Praelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus; supplices deprecamur; tuque, Princeps militiae Coelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute in infernum detrude. 
R.  Amen.
Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
 
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.  Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.  Rebuke him, O God, we humbly beseech Thee; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. 
R.  Amen.


Proper Preparation - Part 2 of 2

Catholic Douay Rheims Bible
This is the Written Word of God
Remote Preparation


Catholic Saints, who have written on the Spiritual Life, suggest that a remote preparation is necessary in order to better understand the Word of God.

But this also really includes everything else as well including all other print media such as all types of books, newspapers, magazines, and everything else that is written, plus all other forms of communication which includes sermons, verbal conversations, public speeches, radio, television, telephones, cellphones, internet, and all other means of communication, both private and public.

Proper remote preparation”, which is really living the daily lifestyle of the Spiritual Life of a Catholic who practices the true and unchangeable Catholic Faith, therefore includes such things as being a lover of the Truth (remembering that God is Truth) and, by the Grace of God, making a daily practice of all of the Virtues, including Humility and Meekness, both of which are very helpful, just as is true Docility to God the Holy Ghost, in addition to daily praying to God the Holy Ghost for His Divine guidance and inspirations.




Proximate Preparation
1)  The Exorcism.  (already done?)
2)  An Act of Contrition.
3)  The Veni, Sancte Spiritus.



An Act of Contrition
You May Use the One You Normally Use
.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love.  I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy Grace, to sin no more and to avoid all of the near occasions of sin.  Amen.

Unless God the Holy Ghost prepares the minds and hearts of those who read what is written, and/or who listen to Sermons or teachings, the Readers read in vain, and the Hearers listen in vain.
.

“Hence [Pope Saint] Gregory [the Great;  Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604] says in a homily for Pentecost (Sermon XXX [30], Forty Homilies on the Gospels): Unless the Holy Ghost fills the hearts of the hearers, in vain does the voice of the teacher resound in the ears of the body.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church: “Angelic Doctor”, “Common Doctor”; “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 177, Article 1, Conclusion of the Article:   Whether any Gratuitous Grace attaches to words? emphasis added.)


VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS
.

Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
.
V.  Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created;
R.  And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
.
Let us pray.  O God, who didst instruct the hearts of Thy faithful by the light of Thy Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to relish what is right and ever to rejoice in His consolation.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Holy Mary, Seat of Wisdom, Pray for me.   Saint Thomas Aquinas, Pray for me.
 


Happy Reading!

The Rosary will really make a
Powerful difference in Your Life!

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
