In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

O Glorious Prince of the Celestial Hosts, Saint Michael the Archangel, protect me (protect us; e.g. me and my loved ones; me and my family members; etc.) and defend me (defend us) in the conflict which I (we) have to sustain against Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places (Ephesians 6:12).

Come to my (our) rescue, for God has created me (us) to His image and likeness, and He has redeemed me (us) at a great price from the tyranny of the Devil. It is thou, O Holy Saint Michael the Archangel, whom Holy Church venerates as her guardian and her protector, thou whom the Lord has charged to conduct redeemed Souls into Heaven.

Pray, therefore, the God of Peace to subdue Satan beneath my (our) feet, that he may no longer retain me (us) captive nor do injury to the Catholic Church. Present my (our) prayers to the Most High God, that without delay He may draw His Mercy down upon me (us). Seize the Dragon, the Old Serpent, which is the Devil and Satan; bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit ...that he (may) no more seduce the nations (Apocalypse 20:2-3).


I humbly and confidently invoke the power of the Holy Name of Jesus and the power of the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, of Saint Michael the Archangel, of Saints Peter and Paul, of the rest of the Holy Apostles and all of the Holy Angels and Saints of Heaven to repulse the attacks and deceits of the Devil.

Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; and let them that hate Him flee from before His Face.

As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish away; as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the Presence of God (Psalm 67:2-3).

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord. (Hold up a Crucifix or a Cross.) Flee, bands of enemies.
R. The Lion of the Tribe of Juda, the Offspring of David, hath conquered.

V. May Thy mercy descend upon me.
R. As great as my hope in Thee.

By the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, of Saint Michael the Archangel, of Saints Peter and Paul and all of the Holy Apostles and all of the Holy Angels and Saints of Heaven, be driven from me (from us), whoever you may be, including all unclean spirits, Satanic powers, infernal invaders, wicked legions, assemblies and sects.

In the Name and by the Virtue of Our Lord Jesus Christ, may you be snatched away and driven from the True Church of God and from me (from us) whose Soul was redeemed (Souls were redeemed) by the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb.

They command you, cunning serpents and all of the human agents of Satan, to stop confusing me (us) and to stop deluding the human race; to stop persecuting the Catholic Church, to stop tormenting God's elect and sifting them as wheat. This is the command made to you by the Most High God, with Whom in your haughty insolence you still pretend to be equal; the God Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the Truth (1 Timothy 2:4).

God the Father commands you. God the Son commands you. God the Holy Ghost commands you.

Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word of God made Flesh, commands you; He Who, to save our race lost through your malice, humbled Himself, becoming obedient unto death (Philippians 2:8), commands you; He Who has built His One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church on the firm Rock of Himself (1 Corinthians 10:4) and declared that the Gates of Hell shall never prevail against her, because He dwells with her all days, even to the consummation of the world (Matthew 28:20), commands you. The hidden power of the Holy Cross overcomes you as does also the power of the mysteries of the Holy Catholic Faith.

The glorious Wife of the Holy Ghost commands you; the Holy Theotokos, Mother of God, commands you; the Immaculate Conception, who, by her profound humility, crushed your proud head, commands you.

Each of the Holy Apostles, as Ordained Exorcists, command you. The blood of the Holy Martyrs and the pious intercession of all of the Holy Angels and Saints command you.

Thus, cursed Dragon, and you, wicked Legions of Devils, your are adjured by the Living God, by the True God, by the Holy God, by the God Who so loved the world, as to give His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him may not perish but may have life everlasting (John 3:16) to cease deceiving me (deceiving us) and all other human creatures and to stop pouring out upon all of us the toxic fumes of lies and confusion and the poison of eternal perdition.

To stop harming the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church and hindering her liberty.

To retreat, Satan, the Father of Lies, the Inventor and Master of all error, confusion, half-truths and deceit, the Enemy of our salvation.

To give place to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in Whom you have found none of your works.

To give place to the Catholic Church, founded by Jesus Christ at the price of His Most Precious Blood.

To stoop beneath the All-Powerful Hand of God.

To tremble and flee at the evocation of the Holy and terrible Name of Jesus: this Name which causes Hell to tremble, this Name to which the Nine Choirs of Angels in Heaven are humbly submissive, this Name which the Holy Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly, repeating: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of hosts .

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.

V. May the Lord be with thee.
R. And with thy spirit.


God of Heaven, God of earth, God of Archangels and Angels, God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets, God of Apostles, God of Martyrs, God of Confessors, God of Virgins, God of the Married, God Who hast power to give life after death and rest after work, because there is no other God than Thee and there can be no other, for Thou art the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, of Whose Reign there shall be no end, I humbly prostrate myself before Thy Glorious Majesty and I supplicate Thee to deliver all of us from all of the tyranny of the infernal spirits, from their snares and their furious wickedness.

Deign, O Lord, to protect all of us by Thy Omnipotent Power, and to preserve all of us safe and sound, I beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Lord. Amen.

From the snares of the Devil, deliver us, O Lord. That Thy Church may serve Thee in peace and liberty, I beseech Thee to hear me. That Thou wouldst crush down all enemies of Thy Holy Church, I beseech Thee to hear me.


Holy Water is now sprinkled while saying:


Come, O Holy Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. Rebuke him, O God, we humbly beseech Thee; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
