Saint of the Month

St. Michael, The Archangel

St. Michael, The Archangel

Feast Day – September 29

Sacred Scripture introduces Michael as the champion and leader of the faithful angels in their struggle against the rebel angels led by Lucifer or Satan. (See Revelation 12: 7-9)

Leaping across the biblical centuries, we find Michael celebrated annually on May 8, anniversary of his apparition on Monte Gargano, Italy. Michaelmas on September 29 recalled the dedication of the Church of St. Michael near Rome in the sixth century. Since 1970 the archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael share a joint feast day on September 29.

Prayer of the Month

Please protect us, St. Michael the Archangel, against violence, murder and robbery. In your goodness preserve us today from all the malice of sinful and wicked persons.

In your sleepless vigilance watch over the safety and welfare of our homes, and keep guard over our possessions. Ever hold in your special care, most triumphant St. Michael, the forces of public order against the crimes of evil people and defend all honest citizens in time of peril. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen.
