Happy Michaelmas!


Our liturgical celebrations have been few and far between recently due to a number of reasons, so it was nice to have had a special moment today to celebrate the Feast of the Archangels.


Dinner of chicken, "deviled" eggs, mac-n-cheese, and salad. I forgot the blackberries. :)


And our first candlelit dinner. With a cool, rainy night, it definitely feels like fall.

Heavenly King, You have given us archangels
to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth.

St. Michael is our protector;
I ask him to come to my aid,
fight for all my loved ones,
and protect us from danger.

St. Gabriel is a messenger of the Good News;
I ask him to help me
clearly hear Your voice
and to teach me the truth.

St. Raphael is the healing angel;
I ask him to take my need for healing
and that of everyone I know,
lift it up to Your throne of grace
and deliver back to us the gift of recovery.

Help us, O Lord,
to realize more fully the reality of the archangels
and their desire to serve us.

Holy angels,
pray for us.

Amen.
