29/9: Feast of St Michael, Archangel…editor
The St Michael Prayer is said at the end of every traditional Mass…
In my own experience from discussion with modernist/liberal types, angels are generally dismissed as “mythical”. I can think of at least a couple of the self-styled “experts” on all things Catholic and theological, who have appeared on TV to participate in a conversation about angels, only to mock the very idea that angels exist. Yet there they are, throughout Scripture, both Old and New Testaments. If you’ve noticed this reluctance to acknowledge or speak about angels, tell us. And tell us, too, if you have a devotion to a particular angel – maybe your Guardian Angel: tell us about it, and share any stories, novenas or special prayers you may know about, which will cultivate devotion to the angels – and to St Michael, in particular, in the days leading up to his Feast on Thursday, 29th September.
