September 29th is Michaelmas, or Saint Michael’s Day.
In our age, we may not really connect with idea that there are beings, angels, operating in our world. At the same time, perhaps there is mystery, things we cannot explain with science, maybe we do not know everything. There have been reports of interactions with Angels in human history dating back thousands of years as well as buy contemporaries, including a story about Russian Cosmonauts encountering Angelic beings in space during the mid 80s.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. -Hebrews 13:2
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection 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,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
