O glorious St. Michael,
guardian and defender of the Church of Jesus
come to the assistance of this Church,
against which the powers of hell
guard with especial care her august Head,
and obtain that for him and for us
the hour of triumph may speedily arrive.
O glorious Archangel St. Michael,
watch over us during life,
defend us against the assaults of the demon,
assist us especially at the hour of death;
obtain for us a favorable judgment,
and the happiness
of beholding God
face to face for endless ages.

Thou image pure and bright,
Watch over me while I'm sleeping.
My Angel dear, good night! continue reading
