Concluding Prayers

O Glorious Prince Saint Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King, and our admirable conductor.  Thou who dost shine with excellence and superhuman virtue, vouchsafe to deliver us from  all evil, who turn to thee with confidence and enable us by thy gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

V.  Pray for us, O Glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.
R.  That we may be made worthy of His promises.

Let Us Pray

Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, hast appointed the most Glorious Archangel, Saint Michael, Prince of Thy Church, make us worthy, we beseech Thee, to be delivered by his powerful protection from all of our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into the August Presence of Thy Divine Majesty.  This we beg through the merits of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

The Promises of Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael appeared to Antonia d’Astonac, a devout Servant of God.  He told her that he wished to be honored by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels with one Our Father and three Hail Marys to honor each Angelic choir.

He promised whoever venerates him in this way before receiving Holy Communion - an Angel of each of the nine Choirs of Angels would be assigned to accompany this person to receive Holy Communion.

Saint Michael also promised his continual  assistance during life and likewise that of the Holy Angels to all who would recite the nine Salutations every day.  Also, after death the deliverance of their souls and those of their relatives from the pains of Purgatory.  (From her Life, volume 11, chapter 74.)

Indulgences Granted by Pope Pius IX
on August 8, 1851 to All who Devoutly Recite
This Chaplet of Saint Michael the Archangel

1) 7 years and 7 quarantines* for each recitation of the Chaplet.

2) 100 days for wearing the Chaplet or for each time one kisses the medal of Saint Michael the Archangel on the Chaplet.

3) One Plenary Indulgence on each of the following days:

a) March 24 - St. Gabriel the Archangel;
b) May 8 - Apparition of St. Michael;
c) September 29 - Dedication Day of St. Michael;
d) October 2 - Holy Guardian Angels;
e) October 24 - St. Raphael the Archangel.
* Quarantines  - “Quarantines” is an expression frequently used in the grants of indulgences, and signifies a strict ecclesiastical penance of forty days, performed according to the practice of the early Church. Hence an indulgence of seven quarantines, for instance, implies the remission of as much temporal punishment as would be blotted out by the corresponding amount of ecclesiastical penance, which would be the equivalent of 40 days x 7 = 280 days of a strict ecclesiastical penance.

Hymn of Saint Michael the Archangel

O Jesus, life-spring of the soul,
The Father's pow'r and glory bright!
Thee with the angels we extol;
From Thee they draw their life and light.

Thy thousand hosts are spread,
Embattled o'er the azure sky,
But Michael bears Thy standard dread,
And lifts the mighty cross on high.

He in that sign the rebel powers
Did with their dragon prince expel;
And hurled them from the heavens' high towers,
Down like a thunderbolt to hell.

Grant us with Michael still, O Lord,
Against the Prince of Pride to fight;
So may a crown be our reward,
Before the Lamb's pure throne of light

To God the Father glory be,
And to His sole-begotten Son;
The same, O Holy Ghost, to Thee;
While everlasting ages run.

Antiphon:  Most Glorious Prince, Michael the Archangel, be thou mindful of us; here, and in all places, pray for us to the Son of God.

V. I will sing praises to Thee, my God, before the Angelic host.

R. I will adore Thee in Thy holy temple and confess unto Thy name.

Let Us Pray

God, who in the dispensation of Thy providence dost admirably depose the ministry of angels and of men; mercifully grant that they who ever minister before Thy throne in Heaven, may also be the protectors of our life on earth. Through Christ our Lord.

Indulgences Granted by Pope Pius VII

To increase devotion to Saint Michael the Archangel, Prince of the Celestial Army, and thereby more effectually secure his powerful patronage for the troubled times in which we live, His Holiness, Pius VII, has granted to all the Faithful:

1. An Indulgence of 200 days, for each devout recital of this Hymn, with its antiphon and prayer.

2. A Plenary Indulgence once a month, to those who, after having said it daily during the calendar month, go to Confession, receive Holy Communion, and pray for the needs of the Catholic Church.   (Decree of May 6, 1817).

Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel is the patron of the Catholic Church - the protector of the dying - on the last day, saying “Arise, ye dead!” he will arraign all men before the Judge of the living and the dead.

Saint Gabriel the Archangel

Saint Gabriel the Archangel’s peculiar Grace is to imprint in hearts the knowledge of Jesus and Mary. Let us be devout to him, and he will render us this desirable service.

Saint Raphael the Archangel

Saint Raphael the Archangel should be invoked by travelers and voyagers, persons about to contract Matrimonial engagements, and those involved in trade and commerce. We should all invoke his aid, being pilgrims on earth, and standing in need of it.
