✚ Prayer for Deliverance by Pope Leo XIII. ✚ 驅魔禱文 (教宗良十三世撰)

(The Priest or Deliverance Minister raises the Crucifix.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, strengthened by the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Blessed Michael the Archangel, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul and all the Saints, and powerful in the holy authority of our ministry, we confidently undertake to repulse the attacks and deceits of the devil.

God arises; His enemies are scattered and those who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so are they driven; as wax melts before the fire, so the wicked perish at the presence of God.

Leader: Behold the cross of the Lord, flee bands of enemies.
All: He has conquered the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the offspring of David.

Leader: May your mercy, Lord, descend upon us. 
All: As great as our hope in you.

All: St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defence against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humble pray, and do you, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, bind into Hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruins of souls. Amen.

(Each time the Cross () appears, the priest blesses the person or place with the Crucifix and everybody else makes the Sign of the Cross. If a lay person is doing the deliverance, he merely raises the Crucifix.)

Leader: We drive you from us, whoever you may be, every unclean spirit, all satanic powers, all infernal invaders, all wicked legions, assemblies and sects. In the Name and by the power of Our Lord Jesus Christ,  may you 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 Lam.  Most cunning serpent, you shall no more dare to deceive the human race, persecute the Church, torment God’s elect and sift them as wheat. The Most High God commands you. He with whom, in your great insolence, you still claim to be equal, “He who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4). God the Father commands you. God the Son commands you. God the Holy Spirit commands you. Christ, God’s Word made flesh, commands you. He who to save our race outdone through your envy, humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death” (Phil. 2:8); He who has built His Church on the firm rock and declared that the gates of hell shall not prevail against Her, because He will dwell with Her “all days even to the end of the world” (Mt. 28:20). The sacred Sign of the Cross commands you, as does also the power of the mysteries of the Christian Faith. The glorious Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, commands you. She who by her humility and from the first moment of her Immaculate Conception crushed your proud head. ✚ The faith of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul and of the other Apostles commands you. The blood of the Martyrs and the pious intercession of all the Saints commands you. Thus, cursed dragon, and you, diabolical legions, we adjure you 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 every soul believing in Him might not perish but have life everlasting” (Jn. 3:16); stop deceiving human creatures and pouring out to them the poison of eternal damnation; stop harming the Church and hindering her liberty. Begone, Satan, inventor and master of all deceit, enemy of man’s salvation. Give place to Christ in whom you have found none of your works; give place to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church acquired by Christ at the price of His Blood. Stoop beneath the all-powerful Hand of God; tremble and flee when we invoke the Holy and 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.

Leader: O Lord, hear our prayer.
All: And let our cry come unto you.  

Leader: May the Lord be with you. 
All: And with your Spirit.

Leader: Let us pray:
All: 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 You and there can be no other, for You are the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, of Whose reign there shall be no end. We humbly prostrate ourselves before Your glorious Majesty and we beseech You to deliver us by Your power from all the tyranny of the infernal spirits, from their snares, their lies and their furious wickedness. Deign, O Lord, to grant us Your powerful protection and to keep us safe and sound. We beseech You through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Leader: From the snares of the devil, 
All: Deliver us, O Lord.

Leader: That your Church may serve you in peace and liberty,
All: We beseech you to hear us.

Leader: That you may crush down all enemies of your Church,
All: We beseech you to hear us.

領禱者高舉苦像十字架

眾:我們因我們的主天主耶穌基督之名,偕同無玷童貞瑪利亞、天主之母聖彌額爾總領天使,聖宗徒伯多祿和聖保祿及所有聖人,我們充滿信心地安然出擊,要擊退魔鬼的各種攻擊和欺騙。

聖詠 68
眾:願天主興起,使的仇敵四散,願仇恨的人,面前逃竄!願惡人在天主面前,滅亡消散就像煙被風吹,蠟被火化一般。

領:請看,上主的十字架,敵對的惡黨快逃走罷!
眾:猶大支派之獅、達味之根已得到勝利。

領:上主,願祢的仁慈憐憫我們。
眾:我們全心仰賴祢。

眾:聖彌額爾總領天使,在戰爭的日子裡保衛我們,免我們陷入魔鬼邪惡的陰謀,和奸詐的陷阱中。我們謙卑地祈求,但願上主譴責牠。上天萬軍的統帥,求你因上主的威能,把徘徊人間,引誘人靈,使其喪亡的撒殫及其他邪靈,下地獄裡去。亞孟。

(每次 出現,各自靜默劃十字聖號。如果由司鐸領禱,應每次用苦像祝福眾人;如果由平信徒領禱,應持續高舉苦像。)

領:我們因我們的主耶穌基督之名及的德能,驅逐你們從我們身邊出去,無論你是誰、每個穢的靈,每種撒殫勢力,每種地獄的入侵者,每個邪惡的軍旅、集團和魔鬼幫派!願你們被綁走並從天主的教會中,從按照天主的肖像及模樣所受造的靈魂中,被驅逐出去。從被神聖羔羊的寶血所救贖的靈魂中,被驅逐出去!最狡猾的古蛇,你不可以再膽敢欺騙人類,逼害教會、折磨天主的僕人和篩他們像篩麥子一樣至高的天主命令你,你曾極度傲慢地妄想與天主相比;是這位「願意所有的人都得救,並得以認識真理」的主 (弟前 2:4)。天主聖父命令你;天主聖子命令你;天主聖神命令你。基督,成為肉身的天主永恆的聖言命令你,來拯救我們的靈魂,「謙卑自己,服從至死」(斐 2:8); 在穩固的盤石上建立的教會,並宣告地獄的門不能反對的教會,因為天天與教會同在,「直到今世的終結」(瑪 28:20)。聖十字架的記號命令你, 基督信仰所有奧蹟的德能命令你。光榮的天主之母,童貞瑪利亞命令你。她藉著她的謙卑,從她無玷始胎的一刻,已踏碎你驕傲的頭聖宗徒伯多祿和聖保祿,及其他聖宗徒的信德命令你。殉道者的血和所有聖人的虔誠代禱命令你。因此,受詛咒的毒龍,和你這邪魔軍旅,我們嚴厲命令你們,生活的天主,真實的天主,至聖的天主,因這位天主「如此愛了這個世界,甚至交出的獨生子,使凡信的靈魂不至滅亡,反而得到永生」(若 3:16 ),我們鄭重地驅逐你們:命令你們停止欺騙人類和把永罰的毒藥灌輸給他們;停止傷害教會及阻擾她的自由。走罷,撒殫!你是一切謊言的來源和首領,人類救恩的仇敵。將你的地方交還給基督,你在祂內找不到你的工作;將你的地方交還給基督用的寶血獲得的教會,至一、至聖、至公、從宗徒傳下來的教會。你要屈服在全能天主的手之下;當我們呼求至聖和可敬畏的耶穌的名,你要戰慄逃竄,因這聖名使地獄驚懼;這聖名使天上的德能者、掌權者和率領者都謙恭臣服;這聖名使革魯賓和色辣芬永不停止地讚美:聖!聖!聖!上主,萬軍的天主!

領:上主,求祢俯聽我們的祈禱。

眾:願我們的禱聲上達於祢。


願主與你們同在。

也與你的心靈同在。

天上的天主、世界的天主、天使的天主、總領天使的天主、眾聖祖的天主、眾先知的天主、眾宗徒的天主、殉道者的天主、精修者的天主、童貞者的天主、能賜人死後得到生命和辛勞後得到安息的天主,因為除祢以外,再沒有別的神,其他的神也不能存在,因為天地萬物無論可見或不可見的,都是由祢所創造;祢的王權直到永遠,我們謙卑地俯伏朝拜祢光榮的尊威,並且懇求祢,以祢的威能,拯救我們離一切地獄邪靈的壓制、牠們的陷阱、謊言和狂暴的凶惡;啊,上主!請以祢的強力保護我們,使我們安全無恙。以上所求,因我們的主耶穌基督。亞孟。

從魔鬼的羅網中,
上主,求祢拯救我們。

領:願祢的教會能平安和自由地事奉祢,
眾:主,求祢俯聽我們。

領:願祢踏碎祢教會的所有仇敵,
主,求祢俯聽我們。
