Novena for the Defeat of Satan

As St. Paul tells us in Sacred Scripture our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against satan and his army of devils. St. Jude, in the Bible, tells us it was St. Michael back at the beginning of creation who led the Heavenly army against Lucifer and his fallen angels and drove them into Hell.

We must especially realize that our fight is against satan, more than it is against the men and women infiltrated into the church and into positions of influence (e.g. in the state and media and schools), and more than those people who have allowed themselves to be used to fight against God, His Doctrine, His Church and His Law, and His revealed Will at Fatima.

Above all we must use spiritual weapons. Of course the Rosary is "the weapon" as Padre Pio used to say, but also let us invoke the aid of the good angels. Let us pray the Novena on this page today and every day, asking St. Michael and his Heavenly armies to fight against all the devils who are obstructing the great crusade for the consecration of Russia that Our Lady of Fatima commanded be done.

Photocopy this prayer and pass it on to others. Get extra copies of this issue and invite your friends to pray this Novena prayer every day for the triumph over evil and hell, and over all the terrible schemes reported in this issue that menace us, our children, our loved ones and our country.

We must be decisive and courageous. With the help of Our Lady and the Holy Angels we shall be victorious over all these evils.

Remember that St. Michael is stronger than the devil, as you read the article "The Crime of the Nineties." Remember too, that we are not without help and protection if we would only ask for it. We must wake up and pray for this help.

Our Father; Hail Mary; Glory be to the Father, etc.

Prayer to Our Lady, Queen of Angels

August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the Angels, Thou Who from the beginning has received from God the power and mission to crush the head of satan, we humbly beseech Thee to send Thy Holy Legions that, under Thy command and by Thy power, they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks and drive them hence into the abyss of eternal woe. Amen.

"Who Is Like Unto God!"

O good and tender Mother! Thou shalt ever be our love and our hope.

Holy Angels and Archangels, keep us and defend us. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Michael

Glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, who standest always ready to give assistance to the faithful, who didst fight with the dragon, the old serpent and didst cast him out of Heaven, and now valiantly defendest the Church of God that the gates of hell shall not prevail against her, I earnestly entreat Thee to assist us also against the painful and dangerous conflict which we have to sustain against the same formidable foe. Be with us, O mighty Prince, that we may courageously fight and wholly vanquish that proud spirit whom Thou hast by the Divine Power so gloriously overthrown and whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ, has, in our nature, so completely overcome; so that having triumphed over the enemy of our salvation, we may with Thee and the Holy Angels praise God Who has granted the possibility of repentance and forgiveness to fallen man. Amen.
