SAINT MICHAEL. Glorious ARCHANGEL, Saint Michael, defend me in life and in death from the snares of the Evil One. Obtain for me the gift of humility, so that pride may never send me down into hell.

FOR PARENTS. LORD Jesus, for love of me once a child, to do Thy FATHER's will Thou didst live on earth. That I might learn to obey, Thou wast obedient to Thy dear Mother Mary and to the holy Joseph, Thy Fosterfather. Bless my dear parents, and have mercy on them.

Spare them long to me, that I

may never give them pain or sorrow, but always obey them for Thy dear sake, JESUS CHRIST, my LORD.

CREDO. I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. And in JESUS CHRIST His only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell, the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
