Litany of St. Michael The Archangel

Michael the Archangel is the commander of the celestial militia, the prince of all the angels, the protector of the souls on Judgment Day. He is one of the most important figures of Catholicism, and there are many prayers dedicated to Him and his fellow Archangels Gabriel and Raphael. Much like the Litany of the Saints, the litany of St. Michael is a set of invocations to entrust our internal battles and our prayers to this great Angel, the defender of God.
