Novena to Saint Michael the Archangel

Today we have a Novena to ask St. Michael the Archangel to protect our families. It should be prayed from today, September 20, through September 28, which is the eve of St. Michael’s feast day on September 29.

My apologies for not getting this posted sooner. I’ve had some delays in posting due to difficulties with my medical care.

“When the Archangel Michael contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him  which would have been the purview only of God, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you.’” (Jude 9)

This means, pray the Lord to rebuke satan, do not take upon yourself to battle but beseech God, the Most Blessed Virgin, Saint Joseph and the Angels, especially St. Michael. (Unattributed quote, contributed anonymously.)
