The Archangel Michael smiting Satan
(Photo by New York Scugnizzo)
September 29 is the Feast Day of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. In celebration I'm posting The Saint Michael Prayer.(*) The accompanying photo of Saint Michael the Archangel smiting Satan was taken at Saint Joseph's Church (5 Monroe Street) in Two Bridges, NYC.
The Saint Michael Prayer
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
