This statue of St. Michael the Archangel is at the Carmelite monastery where I do weekly volunteer work. The statue is hand carved Italian marble. St. Michael is holding the Eucharistic cup and is considered the guardian of the church. After each Mass, many recite the very old prayer, “St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and the snares of the devil. Do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”

    This represents all that humankind stands for.
    Over here in the UK, we have a cathedral in the city of Coventry, which has a striking statue of St Michael and the Devil on the outside wall (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coventry_Cathedral)
    Scroll down to ‘Gallery’ and have a look at the statue. I have a monochrome version of this pic. When I walked through the new cathedral, I felt at peace with the world. Never before or since has this feeling ever come over me.
    I have since learned that St Michael was/is the only saint who wasn’t a human being.
    Both of my elder sister’s daughters were married at their village church, and both of the daughter’s children (1 boy, 1 girl) were christened at the same church. It was only at the second christening that I learned that the date of the second christening (Victoria’s daughter, Tillie) was being christened on St Michael’s Day (September 29th)
