John Paul II during the Angelus prayer on April 24, 1994 encouraged to re-embrace the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “Although, in current times, this prayer is not prayed at the end of the Eucharistic celebrations, I encourage all of you to not to forget it, to pray it to get help in the fight against the dark forces and against the evil in the world. “
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, cast into hell
Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
John Paul II while meditating on the Angelus of the Lord on April 24, 1994, encouraged to say a prayer to Saint Archangel Michael: “Although in the present situation this prayer is no longer said at the end of the Eucharistic celebration, I invite you all so that you will not forget it, that you will say it, and receive help in the fight against the forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world.”

‘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.
