Happy Feast of St Michael Archangel!

Happy Feast of St Michael Archangel!

Today’s Feast is celebrating St Michael as Defender of the Church.  Since the Church is under severe diabolical attack at this time, we might ask for the saint’s powerful intercession.

The prayer, chanted in the video above, is prayed at the end of every Low Mass…

Holy Michael, Archangel,
Defend us in the day of battle;
Be our safeguard 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 down into Hell,
Satan, and all wicked spirits,
who wander through the world, for the ruin of souls.

As with all Feast Day threads, discuss any relevant issues, and share your favourite prayers, hymns and stories.


Thoughtful men, with hearts craving the truth, have come to seek in the Catholic Church the road which leads with surety to eternal life. They have understood that they could not cleave to Jesus Christ as the Head of the Church if they did not belong to the Body of Jesus Christ which is the Church. Nor could they ever hope to possess in all its purity the faith of Jesus Christ if they were to reject its legitimate teaching authority entrusted to Peter and his successors.  Pope Leo XIII

      Thank you for that. A Protestant gentleman from Glasgow who writes to me now and then, sent the following clip this morning of a priest in Australia speaking out – I think it’s the same clip which we used recently as a blog introduction, but very fitting to watch again today (only 4 minutes).

      Happy Feast!

      Thanks for that link – there are some amazing stories of miracles on that site, and it looks like we should be praying to St Michael, not just as defender of the Church, though that definitely, but also as conqueror of plagues to rid us of the Covid scam!

        There are other shrines to St Michael as well – one of the most famous is Mont St Michel in France, and I’ve had the privilege of going there. It’s beautiful. And St Michael’s Mount in England (although this is no longer a shrine, just a tourist attraction). The one place I haven’t been to which I would have loved to have visited is Monte Gargano in Italy (near San Giovanni Rotondo – St Pio). St Michael appeared there as well.

    If this Godless priest and all involved in this demonic performance don’t prove the importance of seeking the intercession of today’s “Defender of the Church”, nobody and nothing else will. To say that what you are about to witness is beyond belief is like saying winters in Scotland are a tad cold…

    As the headline says, the Pope wants Tradition gone but this remains… Gimme patience!

    I’ll leave that link to gloria TV so you can all read the comments, but here’s the video itself for those who tend to avoid links…

    One commentator writes: This is Sacred Heart Omaha Nebraska.

    I can only add…

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

    This is diabolical disorientation writ large. St Michael, protect us and pray for us. That woman in blue dancing with the priest looks like something out of Star Wars.

    I was open-mouthed watching that performance – it’s diabolical without doubt. Both the priest and the woman look like they’re possessed. I am totally shocked.

    To think that the youngsters in that church will think this is Catholic. God help all involved in this demonic behaviour.

    I really would have liked to have seen the whole Mass – because I doubt if it could possibly be valid, even by the new lower novus ordo standards.

      I Personally would also have liked to Have seen the Mass ,so am not going to Criticise People who want to Worship in this way ,if they have no objections to me Attending a Latin Mass .
      It looked a really Beautiful Church and the Altar and Tabernacle also looked Beautiful. One other thing is that ,these People seem to have real love for one another and their seemed to be all kinds in the Congregation ,i would refer condemnation until I seen the Mass and Heard The Priests Homily. Who knows maybe they even had a Collection for good Cancelled Priests.
      Also It seems they all never left after Communion ,something I was Guilty off in my Youth and maybe it was Bruce Springsteen who was the Dancing Priest ,after all unless we were there who could tell.
      Happy Feast Day all .

        I hope you are kidding – that priest and his assistant dancer, are almost certainly possessed of a diabolical spirit and I’m not talking a bottle of Scotch whisky! Take it from me that the homily would be less than orthodox and I agree with Lily that it is highly unlikely to have been a valid Mass even by the lowest possible Novus Ordo standards!

    In case you want to see that priest without the mask, here he is, in a black leather waistcoat. Hmm. https://www.sacredheartchurchomaha.org/staff.html The homepage says “We Are ​A Vibrant & Diverse Catholic, Christian Community”. “Diverse” is usually a code for anything goes – either in faith or morals.

    Happy Feast Day everyone,

    I thought Father’s sermon is excellent. Truly, Our Lady did warn us of this. And this comes from the Pope and Bishops not Consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    This this clip, the story is told of the Marine saved by Michael the Archangel during the Korean War.
