Sermon from The Feast of
St. Michael The Archangel 2014
The angels were created before all material creation, and they are one of the chief creatures of God. Hell was created first for the fallen angels, not for men. We should ask our guarding angels to help us pray and to soften the hearts of our enemies. St. Michael is mentioned in the Old and New Testament, as well as in oral tradition. “Whoever humbles himself will be greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.” We must call on St. Michael to make us humble. Despite the desperate struggle of our times, St. Michael gives us confidence in our triumph.
