Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.

And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God,

Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
