A Letter of Protection

I thought this was kind of cool. A fellow USMCgal of mine sent it out to all of us girls and figured I would share it with you...

Our research has turned up a powerful Letter of Protection dating from 1724 which was said to safeguard the wearer from injury when worn in a pocket. This letter was reportedly discovered in Europe in 1724, written in gold lettering. It disappeared for several years but then resurfaced in 1791. It was later worn by military troops from Pennsylvania during World War I.

A Letter of Protection, to be carried in a pocket:

"In the name of God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost: As Christ stopped at the Mount of Olives, all guns shall stop. Whoever carries this letter with him he shall not be damaged through the enemy's guns or weapons, God will give him strength; he may not fear robbers and murders, nor guns, pistols, swords and muskets shall not hurt him through the command of the Angel Michael, in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, God with me.

Whoever has this letter shall not be taken prisoner, nor wounded by the enemy. Amen. As true as it is that Jesus Christ died and ascended to Heaven and suffered on earth he shall not be shot, but shall stand unhurt, and adjure all guns and weapons on earth by the living God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, I pray in the name of Christ's blood that no ball shall hit me, be it gold or silver, but that God in Heaven may deliver me of all sins in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost."
