St. Michael the Archangel, defend and protect our Priests and monks in this time of great danger to our Church. As they are persecuted for their faith keep anger and hatred from damaging their souls. Help them to be a candle in this chaotic night of oppression that they may draw to themselves other Christians who have lost peace within the Church.
Keep the hands of our priests strong and steady as they consecrate the precious body and blood of our Lord, and guard their souls should they face martyrdom. Let their blood, and that of all those murdered for the love of Christ, strengthen the resolve of all who remain.
Beloved St. Michael keep our holy men safe in this darkening world, and for those martyred in the name of Jesus, guide them quickly home into His loving embrace.
