St. Michael's name means "Who is like unto God?"
Patron of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
He is Leader of the Armies of Heaven. As a warrior he defends not only our souls against the infernal enemy when we call on him, but he also defends Our Lord, Who is helpless in the Blessed Sacrament. This is a portent of his authority to punish those who sin against this Sacrament.
Prayer: St. Michael the Archangel defend us in this day of 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
~ composed by Pope Leo XIII after seeing a vision of the Church in our day
Oh holy St. Michael come to our aid with all the holy angels! Teach us to keep the faith in these times of darkness! Inspire us to fight for our souls and the souls of others! Teach us to win in silence and obedience to God. Teach us to love and be faithful to Mary, Queen of the Angels! Amen
St. Michael the Archangel
