Walk for Life 2015
On January 24th, the Con irmation 2 students, along with many catechists, stood up for Life in San Francisco.
We started our day at the Cathedral of St. Mary’s in San Francisco with the celebration of Holy Mass with
hundreds of Catholics, young and old, from around the West Coast. We then listened to inspiring talks at the
Civic Center and joyfully walked down Market Street proclaiming the beauty and dignity of life. Thank you
to all who helped make this Walk for Life a reality. Please continue to pray for all those mothers and fathers
contemplating abortion, that they may know the love of God and Choose Life for their child.

Week. Please take home a “How to Go to Confession”
half sheet for yourself or a person who you think

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 to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do 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.
PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL
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. Amen.
Acordaos, oh piadosísima Virgen María!, que jamás se ha
oído decir que ninguno de los que haya acudido a Vos, implorado vuestra asistencia y reclamado vuestro socorro, haya sido abandonado de Vos. Animado con esta confianza, a
Vos también acudo, oh Virgen, Madre de la vírgenes, y aunque gimiendo bajo el peso de mis pecados me atrevo a comparecer ante Vuestra presencia Soberana. No desechéis oh
purísima Madre de Dios mis humildes súplicas, antes bien,
escuchadlas favorablemente. Así sea.
ORACION A SAN MIGUEL ARCANGEL
San Miguel Arcángel, defiéndenos en la batalla; sé nuestro
amparo contra la perversidad y asechanzas del demonio.
Reprímale Dios, pedimos suplicantes, y tú, Príncipe de la
Milicia Celestial, arroja al infierno con el divino poder a
Satanás y a los demás espíritus malignos que andan dispersos por el mundo para la perdición de las almas. Amén.
