Saint of the Month
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 in Normandy.
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 people.
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.
