Prayer Life at St. Michael the Archangel


PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS

If you have a family member serving overseas, call
the Parish Office (349-4174) and we will publish
their names in the bulletin to remind everyone to ask
for God’s blessings on them. Please let the Parish
Office know when they return safely home, so that we
may also rejoice with you and remove their name
from this list.

Novenas are a reflection of the acts of apostles as they prayed together for nine days after Jesus's ascension and before Pentecost.  They represent prayers of hopeful yearning.  The "nine days prayer", or "Novena" expresses mourning, hopeful preparation, quiet praise, and prayers for God's kindness and mercy.

NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore Thee, I love Thee and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer Thee this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to Thy will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in Thee and for Thee. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, Thy blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Within Thy Heart I place my every care. In every need let me come to Thee with humble trust saying, Heart of Jesus help me.

Please join us and pray the
Novena to the Sacred Heart on the
first Friday of each month.

MIRACULOUS MEDAL NOVENA

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, 
Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother, 
penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal, 
we your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us the graces and favors we ask during this novena, 
if they be beneficial to our immortal souls,
and the souls for whom we pray.
(Here form your petition)

You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son who hates iniquity. 
Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of men.
Amen.

Each Saturday morning after 8:00am Mass
we come together and pray the
Miraculous Medal Novena.

(All are welcome to recite this prayer privately after Mass).

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and the 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, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.
