Divine Mercy

Jesus, I Trust in You!



Prayer to St. Jude

To be said in great affliction, or when one seems to be deprived of all visible help, or for cases despaired of.

    Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things despaired of.  Pray for me who am so miserable; make use I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of.  Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolations and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings particularly --- (Her make your request) and that I may bless God with you and all the elect forever. I promise you, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to gratefully encourage devotion to you, Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph



Prayer to St. Michael -patron saint of warriors / and leader of the army of God during the Lucifer uprising.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection 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 roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel


Saint Michael the Archangel - one of Joan of Arc's Voices
Painting Archangel Michael by Guido Reni

"Saint Michael, according to Christian teaching, is an archangel and the commander of the army of Heaven. In Revelation 12:7 St. Michael is described leading his angels against Satan in a war that took place in Heaven. The name Michael means "Who is like God?" and the legend is that this was the war cry of the angels of Heaven as they fought and defeated Satan and his followers expelling them from Heaven. Prophecy in Daniel 12 predicts that St. Michael will "arise" to aid God's people in the last days of the World. Because of St. Michael's power to defeat Satan he is especially venerated as the protector of God's church.

Saint Michael's feast day is celebrated on September 29th".  (Source of quote:
