The Chaplet of St. Michael


St. Francis de Sales wrote that veneration of Michael is the greatest remedy against despising the rights of God and against insubordination, skepticism, and infidelity.




V. Oh God, come to my aid.
R. O Lord , make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, etc.

 One Our Father and three Hail Marys.

Through the intercession of Saint Michael and the Celestial choir of the Cherubim, may God grant us the grace to abandon the ways of sin and follow the path of Christian perfection. Amen.

Ninth Salutation
Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial choir of Angels, may God vouchsafe to grant that they may protect us during life, and after death may lead us  into the everlasting glory of Heaven. Amen.
 One Our Father and three Hail Marys.

Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels:
In Honor of St. Michael,
In Honor of St. Gabriel,

In Honor of St. Raphael and 
In Honor of our own Guardian Angel.


Then the following Anthem and Prayer.

Anthem
Saint Michael, glorious prince, chief and champion of the heavenly Host, guardian of the souls of men, conqueror of the rebellious angels, steward of the palace of God under our divine King Jesus Christ, our worthy leader, endowed with superhuman excellence and virtue: vouchsafe to free us from all evil, who with full confidence have recourse to thee; and by thy incomparable protection enable us to make progress every day in the faithful service of our God. Amen
V. Pray for us, most blessed Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.
R. That we may be made worthy of His promises.


Let's us pray
Almighty and Eternal God, who in thine own marvellous goodness and pity didst, for the common salvation of man, choose thy glorious Archangel Michael to be the prince of thy Church: make us worthy, we pray Thee, to be delivered by his beneficent protection from all our enemies, that, at the hour of our death, none of them may approach to harm us; rather do Thou vouchsafe unto us that by the same Archangel Michael, we may be introduced into the presence of thy most high and divine majesty
Through the merits of the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  1. The Chaplet of St. Michael is a wonderful way to honor this great Archangel along with the other nine Choirs of Angels. What do we mean by Choirs? It seems that God has created various orders of Angels. Sacred Scripture distinguishes nine such groupings: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Powers, Virtues, Principalities, Archangels and Angels (Isa. 6: 2; Gen. 3: 24; Col. 1: 16; Eph. 1: 21; Rom. 8: 38). There may be more groupings but these are the only ones that have been revealed to us. The Seraphim is believed to be the highest Choir, the most intimately united to God, while the Angelic Choir is the lowest.

    The history of this Chaplet goes back to a devout Servant of God, Antonia d'Astonac, who had a vision of St. Michael. He told Antonia to honor him by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels. St. Michael promised that whoever would practice this devotion in his honor would have, when approaching Holy Communion, an escort of nine angels chosen from each of the nine Choirs. In addition, for those who would recite the Chaplet daily, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life, and after death deliverance from purgatory for themselves and their relations.
