The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel


BACKGROUND


One day Michael the Archangel appeared to the devoted Servant of God Antonia d’Astonaco. The Archangel told her that he would like to be honored, and God Glorified, by means of the praying of nine invocations. These nine invocations also correspond to invocations to the nine Choirs of Angels. The Chaplet then consists of one Our Father and three Hail Mary after each invocation honoring each Angelical Choir.

Michael the Archangel Promised: He promised to those who practice this devotion Glorifying God and honoring the Nine Choirs of Angels, as well as himself, Gabriel and Raphael Archangels, to secure great Blessings from God. He promises to send one Angel from each Choir to accompany the devout practitioners of this Devotion at the time of Holy Communion.  In addition, to those who offer these prayers every day, he promises his continued assistance. That is, during Time and Eternity as well as assistance in securing prompt release from Purgatory for the devotee as well as the members of the devotee's family.

The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel

Method to Pray this Chaplet


The Chaplet is begun by praying the following invocation:

O God, come to my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit now and ever and unto ages of ages - Amen!

After each of the following Invocations one prays: One Our Father and three Hail Mary:

1. .By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.  Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary)

2. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Cherubim, may the Lord vouchsafe to grant us the grace to leave the ways of wickedness and to run in the paths of Christian perfection.  Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary)

3. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Thrones, may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility.  Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).

4. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Dominions, may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and subdue our unruly passions.  Amen!  (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).

5. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Powers, may the Lord vouchsafe to protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil.   Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).

6. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Virtues, may the Lord preserve us from evil and suffer us not to fall into temptation.   Amen!  (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).

7. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Principalities, may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary)

8. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Archangels, may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works, in order that we gain the glory of Paradise.  Amen! (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).

9. By the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel and the celestial Choir of Angels, may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted hereafter to eternal glory.   Amen!  (Our Father, 3 Hail Mary).


Now we pray one Our Father each in honor of the following:

Michael the Archangel, Gabriel the Archangel, Raphael the Archangel and the Guardian Angel of the individual offering the Chaplet.

The Chaplet is concluded with the following Prayers:

To Michael the Archangel

O Glorious Prince St. Michael the Archangel, chief and commander of the Heavenly Hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the House of the Divine King, and our admirable conductor, thou who dost shine with excellence and superhuman virtue, vouchsafe to deliver us from all evil, who turn to thee with confidence, and enable us by thy gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.

Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, prince of the Elect of Jesus Christ.
That we may be made worthy of His promises.


To God the Father

Almighty and Everlasting God, who by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel, St. Michael, Prince of The Elect, make us worthy, we beseech Thee, to be delivered from all our enemies that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into the august presence of Thy Divine Majesty.  This we beg though the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen!
