THE EXORCISM AGAINST SATAN AND LUCIFER AND THE APOSTATE ANGELS FULLY RESTORED
TO ITS ORIGINAL CONTEXT AS ISSUED BY POPE LEO THIRTEENTH ON 18TH MAY 1890
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered: and let them that hate
him flee from before his face.
As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish away: as wax melts before the fire,
so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. (Psalm 67, verses 1-2)
Judge thou , oh Lord, them that wrong me: overthrow them that fight
Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek after my soul.
Let them be turned back and be confounded that devise evil against me.
Let them become as dust before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord straighten
Let their way become dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord pursue
For without cause they have hidden their net for me unto destruction: without
cause they have upbraided my soul.
Let the snare which he knows not, come upon him: and let the net which he
has hidden, catch him: and into that very snare let him fall.
But my soul shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall be delighted in his salvation.
(Psalm 34, verse 1, 4 - 9)
Glory be to the Father, and to the son, and
to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without
Oh most glorious Prince of the heavenly armies, St Michael the archangel,defend us in the battle and in
our wrestling against principalities and powers against the rulers of the world of this darkness,against the spirits
of wickedness in the high places (Ephes.6:12). come to the aid of men, whom God created incorruptible, and to the image of
his own likeness he made him (Wis.2:23), and from the tyranny of the devil he bought him at a great price (Cor.7:23).
Fight the battles of the Lord today with the army of the blessed angels, as once thou didst fight against Lucifer, the leader
of pride, and his apostate angels; and they prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heave. But that great
dragon was cast out, the old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world. And he was cast unto
the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him (Apoc.12:8-9). Behold, the ancient enemy and murderer strongly raises
his head! Transformed into an angel of light, with the entire horde of wicked spirits he goes about everywhere and takes
possession of the earth, so that therein he may blot out the name of God and of his Christ, and steal away, afflict and ruin
into everlasting destruction the souls destined for a crown of eternal glory. On men depraved in mind and corrupt in heart
the wicked dragon pours out like a most foul river the poison of his villiany, a spirit of lying, impiety and blasphemy; and
the deadly breath of lust and of all iniquities and vices. Her most crafty enemies have engulfed the church, the spouse of
the Immaculate Lamb, with sorrows, they have drenched her with wormwood; on all her desireable things they have laid
their wicked hands. where the See of blessed Peter and the Chair of Truth have been set up for the light
of the gentiles, there they have placed the throne of the abomination of their wickedness, so that the pastor having
been struck, they may also be able to scatter the flock. Therefore O you unconquerable leader, be present with the people
of God against the spiritual wickednesses which are bursting in upon them; and bring them the victory.
The Holy Church venerates thee as its guardian and patron; and it glories in the fact that you are its
defender against the wicked powers of earth and hell. To thee the Lord has assigned the souls of the redeemed to be placed
in heavenly bliss. Beseech the God of peace to crush Satan under our feet, that he may no more be able to hold men captive
and to harm the church. Offer our prayers in the sight of God so that the mercies of the Lord may quickly come to our aid,
that you may seize the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and that having bound him, you may cast him
into the bottomless pit, so that he may no more seduce the nations. (Apoc.20:3)
Hence confiding in your protection and guardianship, by the sacred authority of our ministry, we confidently
and securely begin the task in the Name of Jesus Christ our God and Lord, of driving away the attacks of diabolical deceit.
Behold the Cross of the Lord, flee away ye hostile forces.
R. The lion of the tribe of Juda has conquered.
May your mercy, Oh Lord, be upon us
R. Since we have hoped in You.
Oh Lord hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto you.
The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.
Let us Pray.
O God, and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we invoke your Holy Name, and we humbly implore your mercy,
that by the intercession of the Mother of God Mary Immaculate ever Virgin, of blessed Michael the Archangel, of blessed Joseph
the Spouse of the same blessed Virgin, of the blessed apostles Peter and Paul and of all the saints, you would deign to afford

human race and to ruin souls, through the same Christ Our Lord.
We exorcise thee, O every unclean spirit, satanic power,infernal invader, wicked legion, assembly and sect;
in the Name and by the power of Our Lord Jesus Christ, + may thou be snatched away and driven from the Church of God and from
the souls made to the image and likeness of God and redeemed by the Precious Blood of the Divine Lamb.+ Most cunning serpent,
thou shalt no more dare to deceive the human race, persecute the church, torment Gods elect and sift them as wheat.+
the Most High God commands thee.+ He with whom in your great insolence, thou still claim to be equal: " He who wants all men
to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." (1 Tim, 11, 4)
God the Father commands thee + God the Son commands thee+ God the Holy Ghost commands thee+ The Majesty
of Christ, the Eternal Word of God made flesh, commands thee+ He Who to save our race outdone through thy envy, "humbled Himself,
becoming obedient even unto death. (Phil,11,8) He Who has built His church on the firm rock and declared that the gates of
hell shall never prevail against her, because He will dwell with her "all days even to the end of the world" (St Math. XXV111,
20). The sacred Sign of the Cross commands thee + as does also the power of the mysteries of the Christian faith + The
glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary commands thee + she who by her humility and from the first moment of her Immaculate
Conception crushed thy proud head. The faith of the holy apostles Peter and Paul and of the other Apostles commands
thee + The blood of the martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints command thee +
Thus cursed dragon and thee diabolical legion, we adjure thee by the living God + by the True God + by the Holy
God + by the God "Who so loved the world that he gave up His only Son that ever soul believing in him might not perish but
have life everlasting" (St John 111) stop deceiving human creatures and pouring out to them the poison of eternal damnation;
stop harming the church and ensnaring her liberty. begone Satan, inventor and master of all deceit, enemy of mans salvation.
give place to Christ in whom thou hast found none of your works; give place to the one holy catholic and apostolic church
aquired by Christ at the price of His Blood. Stoop beneath the powerful hand of God; tremble and flee when we invoke the terrible
Name of Jesus, this Name which causes hell to tremble, this Name to which the Virtues, Powers and Dominations of Heaven are
humbly submissive, this name which the Cherubim and Seraphim praise unceasingly repeating: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the
God of Armies.
O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
May the Lord be with thee.
R. And with your spirit.
Let Us Pray.
God of Heaven, God of earth, God of angels, God of Archangels, God of Patriarchs, God of Prophets, God of Apostles,
God of Martyrs, God of confessors, God of virgins, God who has power to give life after death and rest after work, because
there is no other God than Thee and there can be no other, for thou art the creator of all things visible and invisible, of
whose reign there shall be no end, we humbly prostrate ourseves before Thy glorious majesty and we beseech Thee to deliver
us by thy power from all the tyranny of the infernal spirits, from their snares, their lies and their furious wickedness;
deign O Lord to grant us Thy powerful protection and to keep us safe and sound. We beseech you through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
With the sprinkling of holy water:-
"From the snare of the devil deliver us O Lord.
Grant that Thy church may serve You in secure liberty, we beseech You hear us.
Deign to crush down the enemies of the holy church - we beseech You hear us."
Holy Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the
devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do you O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God thrust down to
hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls .
Most sacred Heart of Jesus.
R. Have mercy on us. (Repeat 3 times)
