How much the Church needs the help and protection of St. Michael the Archangel! The traditional prayer to St. Michael was formerly prayed after Low Mass, and it is heartening to see parishes taking up this prayer again.
St. Alphonsus Liguori said, “The powers of hell will assail the dying Christian; but his angel guardian will come to console him. His patrons, and St. Michael, who has been appointed by God to defend his faithful servants in their last combat with the devils, will come to his aid.”
Let us daily ask the powerful help of St. Michael the Archangel, who is mighty with the power of God in the fight against Satan and all the fallen angels.
Like many basic Catholic prayers, this St. Michael prayer is easy to memorize. Let us join together to pray for St. Michael’s help in our battle against evil!
