Consecration to Saint Michael the Archangel

Consecration of a Soul to Saint Michael the Archangel

O glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host,
to whom God has given the power to vanquish the infernal enemies of our souls,
and to rout the powers of darkness in every place where they conspire against us,
thou art the invincible warrior of the Thrice-Holy God and the defender of his glory.
Receive now N.N. into thy care;
take him under thy protection;
deliver him from the snares of Satan.
Open the path of repentance before his feet.
Dispel the darkness that enshrouds his mind.
Extinguish the flaming darts of temptation that fly at him from every side.
By thy prayers, soften thou the hardness of his heart
and obtain for him the gift of tears,
that he may weep over the sins by which he has offended God
and be restored to the joy of salvation.
Saint Michael the Archangel, thou who shinest with heaven’s purest light,
let something of thy brightness reach this soul whom I consecrate and entrust to thee,
that shielded and guarded by thee in this valley of tears,
he may join his voice to thine in the resounding cry of thy triumph over the Enemy of our souls:
—Who is like God!—
and so give glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
now, and always, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
