Romans support the Pope

Briefing: the people of Rome made a magnificent statement of support for the Pope following the action by militant students and professors at La Sapienza University which led to his cancelling a speaking engagement. Between 100,000 and 200,000 turned out for his Angelus address in St Peter's Square, spilling over into the surrounding streets.

Hat-tip to Hermeneutic of Continuity.

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
