To pray or not to pray?

August 3, 2022


I’ve been praying the Auxilium Christianorum for few weeks now. But when I reviewed the requirements to be a member the #1 requirement is for the layman to consult their spiritual director/ confessor before becoming a member. I’m a little confused does this mean only men can be a member of Auxilium Christianorum? Can a laywoman pray the Auxilium Christianorum prayer? And Do I still need to consult my confessor?


Rule 1: Prior to becoming a member of the Auxilium Christianorum, the layman is strongly exhorted to consult his spiritual director or confessor. This means the man must get permission from their Parish Priest (Pastor) for himself and his wife. Now, if the wife is single, divorced or a widow than she must ask for herself from her Pastor.

You can get these prayers from "Lord Prepare My Hands for Battle"
