For protection: novena to St. Michael

Take 9 days to pray for the intercession of St. Michael Archangel, and ask for his protection. May St. Michael defend us against evil, may he protect the Church and strengthen our souls!


Why Pray to St. Michael?

In the Book of Revelation, St. Michael is the Archangel that defeated the Dragon and expelled it from Heaven. The Church also perceives Michael as a "Psychopom", a guide escorting souls to the afterlife. 

In Hebrew, St. Michael's name means "who is like God?". Formulated as a question, the name implies that no one can pretend to be like God, except someone with the same pride as Satan, the demon who wanted to take God's place.
