WORD OF GOD SUNDAY. “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ!” insisted St. Jerome - a strong exhortation from a Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church to Christians urging them to pay attention to serious Scripture study.
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
