My deepest sympathy to those families who lost loved ones in the Boston Marathon tragedy. I pray for the repose of their souls. My heart-felt prayers to those who were injured and those who witnessed the horror.
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 Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Peace of Christ,
