St. Michael, The Archangel

Archangel Michael
With all the light hitting the planet, I'm  so thankful that Archangel Michael is the overseer of Autumn, a time of letting go.  Just like the tree must release its leaves to make way for a new spring, so it is with us.  Our personal attachments are harder to surrender, but Archangel Michael can help us release what no longer serves us.  It's a good time to clean out the closets and lighten our load, as well.

"Sanctify us, we beseech Thee, O Lord Jesus, with Thy holy blessings and grant us, by the intercession of St. Michael, that wisdom which teaches us to lay up treasures in Heaven by exchanging the goods of this world for those of eternity, Thou Who livest and reignest, world without end.  Amen."

Let us, then, with confidence invoke the service and protection of Archangel Michael whose shield bears the inscription: "MI-CHA-EL"--"Quis ut Deus"--"Who is like unto God?"
