Congregation for Clergy proposes Eucharistic Adoration for vocations

Action: please support this initiative. We cannot expect things to improve without the use of the proper spiritual means, and this is a perfect example. It is part of the reintroduction of traditional devotions under Benedict XVI which is of the utmost significance: in this case, Eucharistic Adoration is the best active defence of the full teaching on the Blessed Sacrament. In his new Encyclical Spe Salvi the Holy Father recommends the traditional practice of 'offering up' life's little - or large - frustrations and sufferings to God. Please, readers, offer up your sufferings for your own intentions and for the conversion of our country!

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
