An invocation and a prayer against the persecutors of the Church

That thou would vouchsafe to bring low the enemies of Holy Church, we beseech Thee to hear us.

Ut inimicos sanctae Ecclesiae humiliare digneris, te rogamus audi nos.

From the Roman Ritual, Indulgence of 300 days by rescript of the Sacred Palace, Sept 1 1936.

Graciously hear the prayers of Thy Church, we beseech thee O Lord. that her enemies and all heresies be brought to nought, that she may serve Thee in perfect security and freedom. Through Christ Our Lord

Ecclesiae tuae, quaesemus Domine, preces placatus admitte, ut, destructis adversantibus et erroribus universis, secura tibi serviat libertate. Per Christum Dominum nostrum Amen.

Indulgence of three years.  Plenary under the usual conditions when said daily for a month by rescript of the Sacred Palace, March 9 1936.

Cathcon- our present evil times have much similarity with the 1930s when these prayers were originally published.
