Fighting the Dragon

Saint Michael fighting the dragon (miniature from the Book of Hours of the Knight √Čtienne)

Saint Michael 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, cast into hell
Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.

- Prayer to Saint Michael, Pope Leo XIII, 1886
