Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox as they spiritually travel to Monte San Angelo, a city and comune in the province of Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy. This small city was made famous by an apparition of St. Michael the Archangel. His appearance has made this holy site a place of healing for pilgrims who travel from around the world.
During our journey, our hosts will discuss:
- Basilica of St. Michael–the only one consecrated by a celestial being, St. Michael.
- Historical site in many ways –small groups would spend time on retreat here before sailing to the Holy Land during the Crusades.
- Why the prayer of St. Michael is so powerful.
- Consecration to St. Michael

Protection Prayer to St. Michael:
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Consecration to St. Michael the Archangel:
Prayer of Consecration Oh, most noble prince of the angelic hierarchies, valorous warrior of Almighty God,
and Zealous lover of His glory, terror of the rebellious angels, and love and delight of all the just ones,
my beloved Archangel, Saint Michael, desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants,
O, today, offer and consecrate myself to you, and place myself, my family, and all I possess under
your most powerful protection. I ask you not to look at how little, I, as your servant, have to offer,
being weak and sinful, but to gaze, rather, with favorable eye at the heartfelt affection with which this offering is made,
and remember that if from this day onward I am under your patronage, you must during all my life assist me,
and procure for me the pardon of my offenses and sins, the grace to love with all my heart my God, my dear Savior Jesus,
and my sweet Mother Mary, and obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive at my crown of glory.
Defend me always from my spiritual enemies, particularly in the last moments of my life. Come then, O glorious prince,
and help me in my last struggle, and with your powerful weapon, cast far from me and into the abyss that proud angel that one day
you defeated in the celestial battle. Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battle so that we may come to glory in the last judgment, Amen
Jewel for the Journey:
“The battle against the Devil, which is the principal task of Saint Michael the Archangel, is still being fought today, because the Devil is still alive and active in the world.” – Pope John Paul II
