Hi Vito! I’m still praying for you. My “Men’s Group” is meeting tonight and I’ll include you in my intentions when we pray the Rosary.
Have you seen a priest lately? How about confession? I strongly urge you to talk to a priest often, and to spend time in front of the Blessed Sacrament, as much as possible. Here’s a great post from Fr. Vincent Serpa.
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 hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts, who stands always ready to give assistance to the people of God; who fought with the dragon, the old serpent, and cast him out of heaven, and now valiantly defends the Church of God that the gates of hell may never prevail against her, I earnestly entreat you to assist VitoJoseph also, in the painful and dangerous conflict which he sustain against the same formidable foe.
Be with him, O mighty Prince! that he may courageously fight and vanquish that proud spirit, whom you, by the Divine Power, gloriously overthrew, and whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ, has, in our nature, completely overcome; so having triumphed over the enemy of his salvation, he may with you and the holy angels, praise the clemency of God who, having refused mercy to the rebellious angels after their fall, has granted repentance and forgiveness to fallen man.
