A Dark Hour

Statue of the Archangel Michael
at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Mexico City.
Blessed Michael 
the Archangel, 
defend us in the hour of conflict.
Be our safeguard against the 
wickedness and snares of the Devil:
may God restrain him, 
we humbly pray.
And do thou, 

O prince of the Heavenly Host, 
by the power of God 

thrust down Satan into hell 
and with him 

the other wicked spirits 
who wander through the world 
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
