St. Michael & All Angels


It's the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels today, which puts me in mind of this:

“And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”

Unh Hunh.

St. John the "Revelator" goes on to say:

“For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”

Having great wrath. Ain't that the truth.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle.

God bless,

LSP

We must ask for their aid.

Seriously.

With humility, asking often for their intersession.

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

LSP said...

The first prophecy.

LSP said...

And with humility for sure... must work on that...

LL said...

Humble and proud of it?

Blessed are the poor in spirit.
