In his letter from a few weeks ago about the recent scandals in the Church, especially in the U.S., our Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades encouraged the prayer of St. Michael to be prayed at the end of Masses throughout the diocese.  Pope Francis has also asked it to be prayed at the end of a daily rosary for the Church’s healing, reform, and purification.  This prayer has a long tradition, and some parishes had already been saying this prayer in recent months/years. I myself had received multiple requests about using this prayer at the parish before now, and with Bishop’s encouragement I am happy to have it said at our parish immediately following the dismissal of “Go in peace / Thanks be to God."  Below, is some brief information about the prayer and the prayer itself.
