St. Michael the Archangelinvincible Prince of the Angelic hosts and glorious protector of the universal ChurchI greet thee and praise thee for that splendor with which God has adorned thee so richly. I thank God for the great graces He hast bestowed upon thee, especially to remain faithful when Lucifer and his followers rebelledand to battle victoriously for the honor of God and the Divinity of the Son of Man. St. Michael, I consecrate to thee my soul and body. I choose thee as my patron and protector and entrust the salvation of my soul to thy care. Be the guardian of my obligation as a child of God and of the Catholic Church as again I renounce Satan, his works and pomps. Assist me by thy powerful intercession in the fulfillment of these sacred promisesso that imitating thy courage and loyalty to Godand trusting in thy kind help and protection I may be victorious over the enemies of my soul and be united with God in Heaven forever. Amen.
