August 15th was the Solemnity of the Assumption.

On that day began the

40 DAY CONSECRATION PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

(From August 15th through September 29th

[September 29th  is the Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Archangels)

The prayer is as follows:

Oh, most noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies, valorous warrior of Almighty God, and zealous lover of His glory, terror of the rebellious angels, and love and delight of all the just, my beloved Archangel Saint Michael, desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants, I, today offer and consecrate myself to you, and place myself, my family, and all I possess under your most powerful protection.

I entreat you not to look at how little I, as your servant have to offer, being only a wretched sinner, but to gaze, rather, with favorable eye at the heartfelt affection with which this offering is made, and remember that if from this day onward I am under your patronage, you must during all my life assist me, and procure for me the pardon of my many grievous offenses and sins, the grace to love with all my heart my God, my dear Savior Jesus, and my Sweet Mother Mary, and to obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive to my crown of glory.

Defend me always from my spiritual enemies, particularly in the last moments of my life.

Come then, oh Glorious Prince and succor me in my last struggle, and with your powerful weapon cast far from me into the infernal abysses that prevaricator and proud angel that one day you prostrated in the celestial battle.

Accompany me then to the throne of God to sing with you, Archangel Saint Michael and all the angels, praise, honor and glory to the One who reigns for all eternity. AMEN.

To learn more about St. Michael the Archangel's appearances in Tlaxcala, Mexico, beginning in 1631 to a 17-year-old named Diego Lázaro de San Francisco who was married to Francisca Castillian Xuchitl and the messages that accompanied those appearances as well as the healing waters and the shrine that followed, click here.

     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Imagine, the conversation that may have taken place before time between Jesus and all his angels, (consider that Pope Leo named St. Michael, in the prayer he was inspired to offer, the “Prince of the Heavenly Host” *):

64 “But there are some of you who do not believe.” Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the ones who would betray him. 

65 And he said, “For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father.”

6:66 As a result of this, Lucifer, the highest of the angels and many others turned from eternal life and toward eternal death and no longer accompanied him.

67 Jesus then said to St. Michael and the remaining angels, “Do you also want to leave?

68 St. Michael answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

69 We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.”

70 Jesus answered St. Michael, “Did I not choose all? Yet one of you is the devil?”

71 He was referring to Lucifer, the head of the angels, who would betray him, with many others.

As we know, a conversation just like this did take place in time in the Gospel of John, Chapter 6.  Then, It is all about accepting the "Heavenly Host"!

That conversation is directed to each of the Church Militant as well!
