Stand Firm – Stay Strong! Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the Sunday Mass.

O glorious Archangel St. Michael, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demon, assist us especially at the hour of death; obtain for us a favorable judgement, and the happiness of beholding God face to face for endless ages. Amen. Taken from: Prayers for All Occasions 2017 Edition, Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington D.C. www.nationalshrine.com. A Prayer Before Reading Sacred Scripture: Lord, inspire us to read your Sacred Scriptures and to meditate upon them day and night. We beg you give us real understanding of what we need, that we in turn may put its precepts into practice. Yet we know that understanding and good intentions are worthless, unless rooted in your graceful love. So we ask that the words of Scripture may also be not just signs on a page, but channels of grace into our hearts. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ your son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen
