September 29th: The Warrior Primate

Thus we praise with veneration
All the armies of the sky;
Chiefly him, the warrior primate,
Of celestial chivalry,
Michael, who in princely virtue
Cast Abaddon from on high.

“Michael is the breath of the Redeemer’s Spirit who will, at the end of the world, combat and destroy the Antichrist, as he did Lucifer in the beginning” (St Thomas Aquinas).
