My mom is having big struggles in her pension application, but in a way that is not her fault. She is extremely stressed about this and is panicking. Please pray for her that somehow it would work out :frowning:

O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, who brought forth the Son of God still remaining a Virgin, assist us in this necessity.
O Star of the Sea, help us, and show us that you are our Mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, we humbly ask you from the depths of our heart to help us in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power.
O show us that you are our Mother.

St 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,

…thrust into Hell Satan
…and all the other evil spirits

Amen.

The Memorare
Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petition,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.

Learning Christ
Teach me, my Lord,
to be sweet and gentle in all the events of life;
in disappointments, in the thoughtlessness of others,
in the insincerity of those I trusted,
in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied.

Let me put myself aside,
to think of the happiness of others,
to hide my little pains and heartaches, so
……that I may be the only one to suffer from them.

Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes across my path.
Let me so use it that it may mellow me,
……not harden nor embitter me; that it may make me patient, not irritable;
……that it may make me broad in my forgiveness,
……not narrow, haughty and over-bearing.

May no one be less good for having come within my influence.
No one less pure, less kind, less noble for having been a
……fellow-traveler in our journey toward Eternal Life.

As I go my rounds from one distraction to another,
let me whisper, from time to time, a word of love to Thee.
May my life be lived in the supernatural, full of power and good,
……and strong in its purpose of sanctity.

Original Prayer to St. Michael

[size=] :signofcross:
“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging
against the principalities and powers,
against the rulers of this world of darkness,
against the evil spirits.
Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal,
…made in His own image and likeness,
…and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.

“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, 
together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the
.....proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless 
.....to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven.
That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces 
.....the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels.
Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. 
Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the
.....multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order 
.....to blot out the name of God and of His Christ,
.....to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined 
.....for the crown of eternal glory. 
This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, 
the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, 
the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, 
.....and of every vice and iniquity. 
 
“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness 
.....the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb,
.....and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. 
In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has
.....been set up as the light of the world, 
.....they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, 
.....with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep 
.....may be scattered.
 
“Arise then, O invincible Prince,
bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God,
.....and give them the victory.
They venerate thee as their protector and patron; 
.....in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the
.....malicious power of hell; 
to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. 
Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, 
.....so far conquered that he may no 
.....longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. 
Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, 
.....so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord;
and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, 
.....do thou again make him captive in the abyss, 
.....that he may no longer seduce the nations. 
Amen.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit
by Saint Antiochus
O Holy Spirit,
most merciful Comforter:
You proceed from the Father
in a manner beyond our understanding.
Come, I beseech You,
and take up your abode in my heart.
Purify and cleanse me from all sin,
and sanctify my soul.
Cleanse it from every impurity,
water its dryness,
melt its coldness,
and save it from its sinful ways.
Make me truly humble and resigned,
that I may be pleasing to You,
and that You might abide with me forever.
Most Blessed Light,
most Amiable Light,
enlighten me.
O Rapturous Joy of Paradise,
Fount of Purest Delight,
My God, give yourself to me
and kindle in my innermost soul the fire of Your love.
My Lord, instruct, direct,
and defend me in all things.
Give me strength against all immoderate fears
and against despondency.
Bestow upon me a true faith,
a firm hope,
and a sincere and a perfect love.
Grant that I always do Your Most Gracious Will.
Amen.

Prayer for All Virtues
O Almighty and all-knowing God,
without beginning or end,
who art the giver, preserver, and rewarder of all virtue:

Grant me to stand firm on the solid foundation of faith,
be protected by the invincible shield of hope,
and be adorned by the nuptial garment of charity;

Grant me by justice to obey thee,
by prudence to resist the crafts of the Devil,
by temperance to hold to moderation,
by fortitude to bear adversity with patience;

Grant that the goods that I have I may share liberally
with those who have not,
and the good that I do not have I may seek with humility
from those who have;

Grant that I may truly recognize the guilt of the evil I have done,
and bear with equanimity the punishments I have deserved;
that I may never lust after the goods of my neighbour,
but always give thanks to thee for all thy good gifts…

Plant in me, O Lord, all thy virtues,
that in divine matters I might be devout,
in human affairs wise,
and in the proper needs of the flesh onerous to no one…

And grant that I may never rush to do things hastily,
nor balk to do things demanding,
so that I neither yearn for things too soon,
nor desert things before they are finished.
Amen.
