The Fatima Prayer
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell
and lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those who are in
most need of Thy mercy.
YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN HONOR
St. Thomas says of St. Michael: "Michael is the breath
of the Redeemer’s spirit who will, at the end of the World,
combat and destroy antichrist, as he did Lucifer in the beginning.
St. Michael is the protector and defender of God’s chosen
people.He came with the Israelites from Egypt and accompanied them
through the desert. It was He who gave them, from God, the Ten Commandments
and during the thousands of years that elapsed before the coming
of Christ he was their champion and defender.
He is now the defender of the Catholic Church and of all the faithful
whom he defends against the constant assaults of the devil. He is
invoked in sickness and most especially at the hour of death, when
his all powerful help is so much needed, for then it is that Satan
makes his last and fiercest attack on the Christian soul, seeking
with craft and cunning, with fears and despair to drag it down to
In the prayers formerly said by the priest and people after Mass
there was a special and beautiful prayer to St. Michael imploring
his help for the Church. We should make it a sacred duty to join
fervently in this important prayer.(Tan Books - St Michael and the
Angels) It runs as follows:
“Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle;
be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, oh! Prince of the
heavenly host, by the power of God thrust down to hell Satan and
with him all the wicked spirits, who wander through the world seeking
the ruin of souls. Amen.”

PHOTO OF THE MONTH
of the Relics of the Passion
for Holy Relics)
Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven,
submit himself to John’s baptism? John preached a
baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke
3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of
the “baptism” of Jesus bloody death upon the
cross. Jesus’ baptism is the acceptance and the beginning
of his mission as God’s suffering Servant (Isaiah
52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among
sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father’s
will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death
for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust
and submission to God?
