St. Michael the Archangel - Feast Day - September 29th.
The name Michael signifies "Who is like to God?" /Mi-cha-el/ Michael, God’s champion was the leader of the good angels in the battle fought in heaven against Satan and his followers. /Rv 12:7-12/ Holy Scripture describes St. Michael as "one of the chief princes, and defender of God’s people /Dn 10:12-21; 12:1/ and leader of the forces of heaven in their triumph over the powers of hell. He has been especially honoured and invoked as patron and protector by the Church from the time of the Apostles. Although he is always called "the Archangel," the Greek Fathers and many others place him over all the angels - as Prince of the Seraphim. St. Michael is the patron of paratroopers and police.
Prayer to St. Michael
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 You, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
