Prayers to SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL For Special Protection

Using any prayer that you may prefer during the novena, let us pray the most powerful celestial protector, SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, for special protection against the diabolical forces of pure evil attacking our Holy Mother the Church in the weeks and months ahead.  The novena goes from September 20 to September 29 (or September 19 to September 28, for those who prefer to end it on the eve of the feast), and a prayer suggestion is of course the long original version of the abbreviated version proposed by Pope Leo XIII and said after each Low Traditional Mass.  […]

Honouring St. Michael the Archangel by Salutations to the Nine Choirs of Angels

According to the 1962 Missal of the Roman Rite, September 29 is the feast of St. Michael the Archangel. St. Gabriel is observed on March 24 and St. Raphael on October 24. The Chaplet of St. Michael is a wonderful way to honour this great Archangel along with the other nine Choirs of Angels. What do we mean by Choirs? It seems that God has created various orders of Angels. Sacred Scripture distinguishes nine Choirs: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Powers, Virtues, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels. (Isa. 6:2; Gen. 3:24; Col. 1:16; Eph. 1:21; Rom. 8:38). There may be more Choirs but these[…]
