Novena & Consecration to St. Michael

September 29 - October 7


Beginning on the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel (September 29), we offer a novena and consecrate ourselves to God with the faithful guidance of the chief over all the angels.


Novena Prayer

This ancient consecration prayer that is connected to the shrine of St. Michael the Archangel at Monte Gargano, one of the oldest Christian sites dedicated to our saint. It is a prayer that can be used as a home consecration prayer, entrusting your entire family to the protection of the holy Archangel.

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 angels, 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. Amen.
