We cannot vouch for the content of external sites, and may not agree with what they say. However, the selection here has been made carefully and is frequently updated, and we would like to hear comments and suggestions from our readers. Nearly all are UK-based, and include some less well-known groups that should be encouraged. In general, the Catholic sites and organisations listed here are those we beleive to be worthy of support; the non-Catholic ones are, at the least, extremely useful sources of information.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
