I received a text message from a friend asking me about the famous vision of Pope St. Gregory the Great during the plague of Rome in 590 A.D. I have been busy doing some research so as to provide a sure answer. I’d like to present my findings in bullet-format.
St. Paul Street Evangelization has invited me to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet as part of an ongoing podcast/webinar series during COVID-19.
Afterwards, we will be talking about the St. Michael prayer and Pope Leo XIII in relation to my book. I’d like to invite you to join us today at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.
Hello Everyone! This is the second video of my series responding to Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon.
The present video begins the actual content-review of the Marshall/Gordon podcast. It covers the first twelve or so minutes of the podcast, which largely surrounds a discussion of Pope Leo XIII and the vision he had that led to his composing the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.
Below is a transcript of the video. Please remember to watch the videos consecutively.
Hello Everyone! I have no idea where time seems to be going these days. My new duties and responsibilities keep me quite occupied and I do not have time for much of anything else. Please continue to keep me in prayer.
Preserving Christian Publications has issued another press release concerning the second edition of Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael. I here reproduce part of the lead-in to the larger release:
Pope Francis has requested that the faithful recite the Rosary and the Prayer to St. Michael during the month of October (Italian, English).
His Holiness can rest assured that these prayers will continue to be said by me and I encourage others to do the same.
Did anyone else catch a little gem in the notification from the Holy See’s press office? It confirmed that the prayer to St. Michael was indeed composed by Leo XIII. I am not entirely too sure if the Vatican has ever acknowledged this fact in a public setting. If it had, great, if not, then we now have it.
In the meantime, the second edition of Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael is now available. Be sure to pick up a copy!
