St. Michael and the Power of Darkness 2022

For the great and beloved Saint Michael on his feast day, September 29, 2019.

Today we honor the great angelic Saint, Michael the Archangel, he of the flaming sword who is also, as he assures us, “The Angel of Peace”.  How can this be? St. Michael explained this:

‘Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering which the Lord will send you.’

Thus, sacrifice and reparation are called for. Of course, you regular readers saw that coming  didn’t you? Forgive me, but this is such a grand time to be a Catholic and to do what true Christians do best – take up our crosses and follow the Man! In this way, we obey the great Saint Michael, the Angel who promises peace to us – the peace of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

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.)
