Who is the Archangel Michael?
Archangel Michael is considered the most
dynamic, active and hardworking of all the angels.
In Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Anglicanism and Lutheranism, he is called “Archangel Michael” and “Saint Michael the Archangel.”
Saint Michael is mentioned three times in the Book of Daniel. He supported the Jews and thus occupied an important position in the country.
In the New Testament, Michael is the Lord’s military commander against the Satanic forces, as recorded in the Book of Revelation. During the war in heaven, He commanded the heavenly army that crushed Satan. In the Letter of Jude, Saint Michael is called “the archangel Michael”. In the Catholic sanctuaries of St. Michael that appeared in the fourth century, he was first seen as a healing angel, and then sometimes as a guardian and military leader.
After fulfilling his duty, Archangel Michael returns in
battle armor “that still smells like gunpowder” to
present the war situation and report the results
to the Queen of heaven.
1) Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
2) Prayer from the Chaplet of St. Michael
Almighty and Everlasting God, who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel, St. Michael, Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we beseech You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into the august presence of Your Divine Majesty. This we beg through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
