After Holy Mass we pray the prayer of St. Michael, the Archangel.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our safeguard 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 Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who wander throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
The history of the St. Michael prayer goes back two centuries.
