St. Michael the Archangel Novena

Saint Michael archangelSt. Michael the Archangel is mentioned a few times in the Bible and is venerated as the ‘Prince of Angels.’

More About St. Michael the Archangel

The Catholic church refers to Michael the Archangel as St. Michael even though he is an angel, and not a saint whose recognition resulted from canonization. He is believed to be the prince of all of God’s angels, and the protector of the church.

There were several instances when St. Michael is believed to have appeared in the Bible, among them:

  • In the Book of Daniel, St. Michael is referenced as the “Great Prince and defender of your people”
  • As a sword-wielding angel who introduced himself to Joshua just before the fall of Jericho, as commander of the army of the Lord.
  • As the leader of the Angels who banished Satan and his minions according to the Book of Revelations
  • As an Archangel in the Epistle of Jude
  • In the Epistle to the Thessalonians, mention is made of an archangel who will announce the second coming of Christ. Though not identified, it is believed to be referring to St. Michael.

St. Michael is venerated as a healer, and protector of the Catholic Church. His feast day is celebrated on Sept. 29 but we are praying the novena in February.

  36. Good day, friends.
    Please remember to always pray to God, to keep and bless us. To thank God, despite everything. Nothing we are, nothing we have is a given. When things are okay, we can never thank God enough. When things are not okay, there are still so many ways in which they could be worse. Everything is by the mercy and grace of God. Always, by the mercy and grace of God.
    St Michael, protect us through the strife, for the evil lies.
    Let God be God. The evil is a liar. God is our peace and joy. To entrust all things to God, because we are certain that whether we see it now, later or never, our Maker loves us thoroughly and will do what is best for us. To surrender all to God. Everything, because there is not a single thing that we truly control, except our total acknowledgement of God’s might, hence our surrender.

    May God keep us. Have a good night mate.
