Prayer for Each Day:
My Lord and My God, Father of Mercy and all Consolation: I present myself to You of my own free will and with all the resolution and firmness of which my heart is capable aided by thy divine grace, so You would deign to receive me among Your humble and fervent servants under the direction of the glorious Saint Michael.
Keeping with my soul’s earnest desire, I will don the livery of humility, observe the cleanliness of chastity according to my state in life, and embrace the shield of patience with which I shall resist the arrows shot at me by the world, the devil and the flesh. I will arm myself with holy zeal to seek thy greater glory and the salvation of souls. I will strive in earnest to teach the truth and dispel ignorance, extirpate vice and cultivate virtue in me and all my neighbors. This is my resolution, which I hope to fulfill helped by divine grace, which I will receive through the merits of Jesus Christ Thy Son, by the intercession of Mary Most Holy, the glorious Saint Michael, and all other Angels and Saints. Amen.
God and Lord of the heavenly spirits of the Eighth Choir, the Archangels, called thus because You entrusted to them the all-important care of Your honor and glory; I offer Thee, o Lord, the merits of these noblest spirits and those of the glorious Saint Michael, who distinguished himself so much in the great battle and heroically defended Your honor and glory against Lucifer and his followers. I implore You to grant me grace and strength to conquer and overcome all the enemies of my salvation so that, having obtained the heavenly glory, I may forever sing Your mercy. Amen.
(Here pray nine times the Our Father and Hail Mary in union with the nine choirs of Angels and their Prince, Saint Michael. Then, pray:)
O glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts, terror of demons and their henchmen, great and admirable Captain next to Jesus Christ, resplendent with grace, excellence and virtue; deliver us from all adversity so that we may love God with ardent fervor, and that we may progress each day in His holy service.
