Opening Prayer (at meetings):
+ Eternal Father, we are grateful for Your many blessings, for family and friends, for our beloved Church and for this blessed land. We earnestly want to preserve these blessings but we face destructive forces in the world which are set against the truths of both Church and Nation.
Holy Spirit, we ask for wisdom and understanding in our efforts. We need Your guidance, strength and courage, for without You we can do nothing but with You we cannot fail.
Almighty God, please help us to defend the Catholic faith that You have given us and to withstand the deceptions and oppression of "destructive forces" set against Your truth.
We ask this in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen +
Closing Prayer (to St Michael, in the battle against the Deceiver):
+ 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, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
"The Battle Is Real"
