Special Prayers for Spiritual Warfare

This is the text of what Mother Angelica prays on the air over EWTN daily. Pope Benedict XVI recently said that owing to the complexity of the devil's infestation into the world and the subsequent oppression of the people of God, solemn institutions and the priesthood, the faithful must look into equipping themselves with powers of exorcism in this day and age. The Angelic Rosary and accompanying prayers were started by the Sacred Congregation of Rites in August 8, 1851 and the Sovereign Pontiff. His Holiness Pope Pius X decreed that whoever devoutly recites these prayers, will be given the protection of the Holy Choirs of Angels and the following indulgences:

  1. Of seven and as many forty days, each time the Angelic Rosary is recited.
  2. Of hundred days in which every day the Rosary is carried on the person, or only if kissed the annexed deal with the image of the Holy Angels.
  3. Plenary Indulgence if the rosary is recited daily and if confessed and communicated, prayers will be said for the exaltation of the Holy Catholic Church and the preservation of the Pope.
  4. Plenary indulgence if recited on the following festivities:
    • the May 8 apparition of St. Michael;
    • the September 29 dedication of St. Michael;
    • the March 18 dedication of St. Gabriel
    • the October 24 dedication of St. Raphael; and
    • the October 2 dedication of Holy Guardian Angels.

The Angelic Rosary

After each salutation in honor of the nine choirs of angels, recite one Our Father, three Hail Marys and one Glory Be.

God, come to my assistance. Lord make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

1) Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord render us worthy of the flame of perfect charity. Amen.

2) Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim, may the Lord grant us the grace to abandon the life of sin and may He assist us in the way of Christian perfection. Amen.

3) Through the intercession of St. Michael and the sacred Choir of Thrones, may the Lord instill into our hearts a spirit of true and sincere humility. Amen.

4) Through the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominations, may the Lord grant us the grace to dominate our senses and correct our corrupted passions. Amen.

8) Through the intercession fo St. Michael, and the celestial Choir of Archangels, may the Lord concede us the grace of perseverance in the faith and in good works, whereby be able to conquer the glory of Paradise. Amen.

9) Through the intercession fo St. Michael, and the celestial Choir of All Angels, may the Lord deign to grant us the grace to be protected by them in the present mortal life and afterwards may they lead us to the everlasting glories of Heaven. Amen.
