The Prayer of Blessing Against Storms


At each † in the prayer, make the sign of the cross

Jesus Christ a King of Glory has come in Peace. † God became man, † and the Word was made flesh. † Christ was born of a Virgin. † Christ suffered. † Christ was crucified. † Christ died. † Christ rose from the dead. † Christ ascended into Heaven. † Christ conquers. † Christ reigns. † Christ orders. † May Christ protect us from all storms and lightning. † Christ went through their midst in Peace † and the word was made flesh. † Christ is with us with Mary. † Flee you enemy spirits because the Lion of the Generation of Juda, the Root of David, has won. † Holy God! Holy Powerful God! Holy Immortal God! † Have mercy on us.  Amen!


This prayer originated in a convent and church in Lisbon, Portugal.  Pope Innocent III, 1198 - 1216, ordered it published.)
