Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael Archangels

PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL – so needed, now more than ever!

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God, 
cast into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Sr. Maria Goretti Thuy Nguyen, OP

Dear All in Christ’s Peace,

I am Sr. Maria Goretti Thuy Nguyen, a Dominican sister of Mary Immaculate Province, in Houston, TX.  I have recently begun serving in the OEC for a month now.  Let us pray for one another’s ministry.

A beautiful prayer, from the Roman Ritual, to remind us that we rely on God for everything :

Direct, O Lord, all our actions
by Your holy inspirations,
and carry them on by Your gracious assistance,
so that every prayer and work of ours,
may always begin from You,
and by You be happily ended,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
