September 29th marks a special time called Michaelmas Day to honor Archangel Michael. His name in Hebrew translates to "Who is Like God". He is called Saint Michael in the Christian churches and is the mighty warrior whose light triumphs over the darkness of negativity. Often depicted with a sword, slaying a dragon, he is the Archangel to invoke in battle against negative energies. He helps us find the light within ourselves.
The patron saint of policemen, soldiers, and small children, he also watches over pilgrims and strangers. He is the fiery warrior, Prince of the Heavenly Armies, who fights for right and justice and gives guidance to all who find themselves in dire straits.

There is a legend that in the late 5th century the Archangel Michael appeared to fishermen on St. Michael's Mount.
Michael is considered the greatest of all angels in the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religions. He is known as the Holder of the Keys of Heaven and Chief of the Archangels, Angelic Prince of Israel, and Angel of the Burning Bush.
We can pray to Archangel Michael to help us whenever we find ourselves, fearful, overwhelmed and alone.
Thank you, Archangel Michael for all that you do to set us free so we can serve the Light.
