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.’

He is known for interceding for us for protection from evil and for healing.

In Christian art, he is often depicted wearing armor, wielding a sword or spear and slaying a dragon, a serpent or satan.

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.

  22. I pray for help in my relationship with my boys. My husband has made them to dislike women. Especially me! I pray my girls are able to find men the will love them and be soft with them. Each one of my kids have been been tormented by their father. He manipulates them in thinking how stupid and wrong i am. He get joy in showing them how ridiculous i am. And to not believe me so he doesnt look like to bad guy. I would run but i camt bear ro leave my kids. I know he will never change. But somehow protect me and my children. We are all mentally worn out! Please pray

    • Whenever the evil occurs, go for a walk, leave the room, recite the Our Father, sing a hymn, do not allow yourself to be treated with disrespect. Be a model of strength, ask Morher Mary to stand beside you with Saint Michael and be everything your children need you to be. They know the truth. “They will know we are Christians by our love.” Jesus does not want you to stay in a bad relationship and be abused. This is very bad for your children to see. Things will be better if you leave. Do you want your children to think it’s okay to stay in an abusive relationship and be abused ? Move on and things will get better.

  23. Prayer points;
    Healing from any sickness that thteaten my life.
