Prayer Card-The Leonine Prayers (to be prayed after Mass)


The Leonine Prayers are a set of prayers that from 1884 to early 1965 were prescribed for recitation by the priest and the people after Low Mass, but not as part of Mass itself. Hence they were commonly called Prayers after Mass.

Pope Leo XIII requested these prayers to be said after every Mass for the protection of the Church in a time of crisis.

These prayers were to be said by all Catholics after Mass, for the intention of protecting the Church in this crisis, with the hope of an adequate resolution.

Pope Leo XIII added the St. Michael Prayer to these prayers recited after Mass. According to various reports, this was in response to a frightening vision Pope Leo had of “demonic spirits, who were gathering on the Eternal City (Rome).”

Sadly, In 1964... with the reform of the Roman liturgy, these “Prayers after Mass” were eliminated.
