Quis ut Deus
Who's like God
and His the devotees.
Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our safeguard against
the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and you, O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
cast down to hell Satan and the other evil spirits,
who prowl through the world for the ruin of souls.
Saint Michael the Archangel
The name Michael means “Who is like to God?” (Mi-cha-el, lat. Quis ut Deus). In the battle fought in heaven against Satan and his followers, St. Michael lead the army of angels against the rebellion, casting evil spirits down to hell. Rv 12:7-12
Holy Scripture describes St. Michael as “one of the chief princes, and defender of God’s people” Dn 10:12-21; 12:1 and leader of the forces of heaven in their triumph over the powers of hell. He has been especially honoured and invoked as patron and protector by the Church from the time of the Apostles.
Although he is always called “the Archangel,” the Greek Fathers and many others place him over all the angels – as Prince of the Seraphim. St. Michael is the patron of paratroopers and police.
