Saint of the Month

St. Michael, The Archangel

St. Michael, The Archangel

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 in Normandy.

Prayer of the Month

St. Michael the Archangel, guardian of God’s people, help us in our struggle against evil in our hearts and in our minds. Guard and guide those whose special task is to work for the welfare of all. Keep our homes and families safe from harm.

Be at our side at life’s end and lead us safely to the Lord whose great love we cherish and whose mercy we implore. Amen.
