St. Michael the Archangel Statue
An astonishingly detailed image of great power and character, our “St. Michael the Archangel” is exclusively sculpted in three dimensions in high-quality bonded natural marble. With a strong diagonal line indicated by the thrust of his sword, this work of museum-quality art is a testament to St. Michael’s strength.
On July 5, 2013, Pope Francis consecrated the Vatican to St. Michael the Archangel’s protection, saying: “We are not alone on the journey or in the trials of life, we are accompanied and supported by the Angels of God, who offer, so to speak, their wings to help us overcome so many dangers, in order to fly high compared to those realities that can weigh down our lives or drag us down. In consecrating Vatican City State to St. Michael the Archangel, I ask him to defend us from the evil one and banish him.”
Michael — which means: “Who is like God?” — is the champion of the primacy of God, of his transcendence and power. Michael fights to reestablish divine justice; he defends the People of God from their enemies and above all from the arch-enemy par excellence, the devil. And St Michael triumphs because in him it is God who acts. This sculpture reminds us therefore that evil is vanquished, the accuser is unmasked, his head is crushed, because salvation was fulfilled once and for all by the blood of Christ. Even if the devil is always trying to scratch the face of the Archangel and the face of man, God is stronger; his is the victory and his salvation is offered to every human being. On the journey and in the trials of life we are not alone, we are accompanied and sustained by the Angels of God, who offer, so to speak, their wings to help us overcome the many dangers, to be able to fly above those realities that can make our lives difficult or drag us down.
St. Michael Statue For Your Home
If Pope Francis consecrated the Vatican to the Archangel’s protection, should we do the same for our home and family, our domestic church? When it is financially possible, keep a statue of Our Lady and Saint Michael in your home, before which a votive candle is to be burned, and consecrate your home to St. Michael the Archangel.
