Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in this day of battle against this deadly scourge. Be our protection against the suffering and fear of this plague. May God remove it, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, put an end to this scourge and all other ailments that be in the world for the ruin of bodies and souls. Through the prayers of the Theotokos. Amen.
