In Celebration of

St. Michael's Apparition Memorial Day

Monday, AD 27 May 2002 NS

Apparitio S. Michaelis - AD 8 May 663 OS (AD 21 May NS)
"You should be aware that the word 'angel' denotes a function rather than a nature. Those holy spirits of heaven have indeed always been spirits. They can only be called angels when they deliver some message. Moreover, those who deliver messages of lesser importance are called angels; and those who proclaim messages of supreme importance are called archangels."
"Whenever some act of wondrous power must be performed, Michael is sent, so that his action and his name may make it clear that no one can do what God does by his superior power." -- from a homily by Pope Saint Gregory the Great (AD 540 OS - AD 12 March 604 OS)

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
