With the Corruption in the Catholic Church Leadership Maybe We Should Start Praying the Full Version of the Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer

 

On September 24th, 2018, only Tony and Wynn showed up to pray at Planned Parenthood. With so few Prayer Warriors praying daily for an end to abortion, unnatural contraception and sexual sins, you begin to wonder if the scripture reading and responsorial psalm for today describe the slander of Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh.

The scripture for Mass was, “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.” Luke 8:16-18

The responsorial psalm was:
R. (1) The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
He who walks blamelessly and does justice; who thinks the truth in his heart and slanders not with his tongue.
R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
Who harms not his fellow man, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor; By whom the reprobate is despised, while he honors those who fear the LORD.
R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
Who lends not his money at usury and accepts no bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be disturbed.
R. The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.

As a part of our daily prayers, we pray the short version of the Saint Michael the Archangel Prayer:

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

I recently discovered the complete version of the prayer, originally authored by Pope Leo XIII, and published in the Roman Raccolta on July 23, 1898. There was also a supplement approved July 31, 1902 that appears below in italics.

I truly was amazed that the supplement clearly predicted the gradual corruption of the leadership of the Catholic Church over the last 116 years. The scandalous disclosures of the greed, sexual sins, apostasy and cover-ups in the Vatican exposed in the 2015 Vatican Bank Report, confirm Pope Leo’s worst fears becoming reality.

Pope Leo wrote the full St. Michael the Archangel prayer after he experienced a horrific vision about the corruption of the leadership in the Catholic Church. One day, after celebrating Mass, he was in a conference with the Cardinals.  Suddenly, he passed out and fell to the floor. The physicians found no pulse and feared he was dead. However, after a short time, Pope Leo came back to life and cried out with great emotion: “Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!”

The reports described how he saw a vision of evil spirits who had been released from Hell and their efforts to destroy the Church. Fortunately, during this horrific nightmare,  St. Michael the Archangel appeared and cast Satan and his legions into the abyss of hell. Soon afterwards Pope Leo XIII composed the prayer to Saint Michael, which is the original version listed below.

“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.

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord; be scattered ye hostile powers.
R. The Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered, the root of David.
V. Let Thy mercies be upon us, O Lord.
R. As we have hoped in Thee.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

Let us pray.
O God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Thy holy Name, and as supplicants, we implore Thy clemency, that by the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin Immaculate and our Mother, and of the glorious St. Michael the Archangel, Thou wouldst deign to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits who wander about the world for the injury of the human race and the ruin of souls. Amen.”

Are We Praying the Rosary and Seeking Personal Holiness Enough to Avert the Judgement Of God on the USA and the World.

In times of spiritual wickedness in the leadership of the Catholic Church, prayer and the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration are the primary sources of warfare against evil in high places.

Faithful Prayer Warriors fight daily against the principalities, powers and spirits of darkness and the evil rulers of this world. We battle for the souls of men and women with depraved minds and corrupt hearts, that lie, blaspheme and spread impurity and every kind of vice and iniquity.

The most important question at this time in history is, “Are we praying the rosary and seeking personal holiness enough to avert the judgement of God on the US and the world described by our Blessed Mother to Sister Mary Ephrem.

On the eve of the Feast of the North American Martyrs, September 25, 1956, Our Lady first appeared to Sister Mary Ephrem, in the Our Lady Mother of Mercy Chapel, Rome City, Indiana. She said, “I am Our Lady of America. I desire that My children honor Me, especially by the purity of their lives.”

The next day, Our Lady of America, confirmed Her Identity as that which the U.S. Bishop declared and which was ratified by the Holy See in proclaiming, “I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land. Be My faithful children as I have been your Faithful Mother.”

“It is the United States that is to lead the world to Peace, the Peace of Christ, the Peace that He brought with Him from Heaven.”

Sister Mary Ephrem quoted Our Lady of America saying, “Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by Heaven to lead the world to Peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering.

“If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from Heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of Peace because the rest of the world will not accept or cooperate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall.” – Nov. 22, 1980

The Blessed Virgin Mary Promised that Her statue as Our Lady of America once placed in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception would be a safeguard for our country, and her picture or statue honored in all homes, a safeguard for the family. She also Promised that the medal would be a safeguard against evil for those who wear it with great faith and devotion. She taught Sr. Mary Ephrem this short prayer: “By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.” † MJL †

ABBA Father, In the Name of Jesus, by the Unity, Power and Love of the Holy Spirit, with Mary, Under Her Title of Our Lady of America – The Immaculate Virgin, through the Intercession of the little daughter of the Divine Will Luisa Piccarreta, together with all the Angels and Saints, bring about a Great Miracle.

May Your Grace Flow abundantly and shower down upon the hearts and minds of Your Bishops in the United States. May Your Bishops recognize and fulfill the Crucial Request of Our Lady of America, and process Her statue in, and honor Her perpetually, in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC. May this humble prayer, surrendered to You Lord, be Your Command!

May this act be done in the name of all priests, religious and laity of the United States of America, past, present and future. May everyone receive the Abundant Graces, conversions and healings necessary to fulfill Our Lady of America’s Mandate, that the children of America bring Purity to the world. May this humble prayer, surrendered to You Lord, be Your Command!

May Your Holy Church and all the world through Our Lady of America, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, receive Your Kingdom on earth as It is in Heaven. Lord, Bless Your Holy Church with the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your Mother and ours. May this humble prayer, surrendered to You Lord, be Your Command!

May All be Accomplished and Completed in Your Most Holy Divine Will. So Be It! We Believe! We Receive! Fiat! Amen!

By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.

It seems the leadership of the Catholic Church, over the last 120 years has been so corrupted by sin, is it any wonder even the very elect will be deceived now that their sins are being exposed in the light.

Matthew 24:15-30
“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination of desolation,’ described by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), then let those in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve anything from his house. And let no one in the field return for his cloak.

“How miserable those days will be for pregnant and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not occur in the winter or on the Sabbath. For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again. If those days had not been cut short, nobody would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be shortened.

At that time, if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders that would deceive even the elect, if that were possible. See, I have told you in advance.

“So if they tell you, ‘There He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days: ‘The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”
