SAINT OF THE MONTH

St. Michael
Feast Day - September 29

A long tradition identifies St. Michael, the Archangel, as the leader who remained faithful to God, and cast Lucifer into Hell at God's command. His powerful aid has always been invoked by the Church in time of emergency.

The Popes have constantly called on St. Michael as the special protector of the church whenever great evils threatened God's people. For this reason, St. Michael is especially honored at Rome, on Monte Gargano, near Foggia, in Italy, and in France on Mont Saint-Michel Normandy.
