Again, like so many excellent things, limited to "younger" people (aged 18-35). What about "older" Catholics? We have had to live through a liturgical and catechetical wilderness, and now, when the Church appears to be recovering from collective memory loss, we are being forgotten. Ah well, that was and is our cross. May the young make the most of the opportunities now offered to them!

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
