  1. Standing voluntarily under the banner of the glorious Saint Michael the Archangel, by living and zealously fulfilling the obligations arising from the reception of the sacrament of baptism;
  2. Taking active part in the battle of Saint Michael the Archangel, which he carries on with evil spirits and their supporters, by fulfilling the obligations arising from the reception of the sacrament of confirmation;
  3. Eagerly participating in the sacrament of reconciliation and engaging in building up of the Kingdom of God in human souls;
  4. Every day, saying the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel, written by Papa Leone the XIII.

Where does prayer come from? Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures, it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more than a thousand times). According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain.
