St Michael the Archangel
Patron of Police Officers
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
Before the creation of man, a great battle took place in Heaven. According to the Book of Revelation, the beautiful angels of holiness and wisdom, and the reflection of God’s light, were tested in their love for God.
A rebellious force led by the angel Lucifer, rose up and declared their equality to God. Immediately, a great angel came forth to challenge Lucifer and his army, announcing, Mi-cha-el – meaning “who is like God?”. Michael and the other loyal angels, battled with the rebellious angels, and cast them into the depths of Hell, because of their arrogance and pride.
It is believed the Michael will also do battle with, and destroy the Antichrist, as he did with Lucifer at the end of time. Because of his powerful protection. Michael has been given the title of Archangel, and is in charge of all the Heavenly armies.
Michael has long been a special protector for the people of God, as well as defender of Heaven. He is mentioned several times in both the Old and New Testaments. It was he who led the Israelites out of Egypt, and continues to defend the church and God’s people from attacks by the devil. He is often invoked during times of illness and especially at the hour of death.
Feast Day: September 29
Prayer to St Michael
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in our battle; be our protection 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 wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
