Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Oh prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell, the third day He arose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Jesus, we know that You are merciful and that you have offered Your heart for us. It is crowned with thorns and with our sins. We know that You implore us constantly so that we do not go astray. Jesus, remember us when we are in sin. By means of Your Heart, make all men love one another. Make hate disappear from amongst men. Show us your love. We all love You and want You to protect us with Your Shepherd's heart and free us from every sin. Jesus, enter into every heart! Knock, knock at the door of our heart. Be patient and never desist. We are still closed, because we have not understood Your love. Knock continuously. O Good Jesus, make us open our hearts to You, at least in the moment we remember Your Passion suffered for us. Amen.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, ardent with goodness, show Your love toward us. May the flame of your heart, O Mary, descend on all mankind. We love you so. Impress true love in our hearts so that we have a continuous desire for you. O Mary, humble and meek of heart, remember us when we are in sin. You know that all men sin. Give us, by means of your Immaculate Heart, spiritual health. Let us always see the goodness of your Maternal Heart, and may we be converted by the means of the flame of your Heart. Amen.
Prayer for Youth
My Father, please help our young people to come into Your glory. Father our young men and women are being lost because they do not trust Your graces. Good Father, give them Your love and protect them from the evil one. Forgive them, my Father, with Your generous mercy and compassion. They are good children, Father. Hold not their sins against them, but pour instead an abundance of Your love into their hearts. It is Your love, my Father, which will draw them to renew their lives and come to You. Thank you, Father for giving them the bounteous blessings of Your love. Thank you for loving them as Your own sons and daughters. Save them, Father, I plead with You in their behalf. Save them by the merits of Your Son, Jesus. In Your Son's name and precious blood, I pray. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
