BLESS the Lord, all ye His Angels: you that are mighty in strength, and execute
His word, hearkening to the voice of His orders. ~ Introit from the Mass for St. Michael
On this feast of the three named Archangels, the Sisters particularly love to honor the angels by singing the hymn "Michael, Prince of All the Angels". In this triumphant hymn, St. Michael is given pride of place for His role as Defender, but the Gabriel and Rafael are also honored in their roles as Messenger and Healer. Each of the other choirs of angels are mentioned, with a special note of thanks for our faithful guardian angels.
Mary, Queen of all the Angels, "whose garment is the sun," pray for us who turn to thee!
