We call on St. Michael the Archangel, “Prince of the Heavenly Host” to protect us from evil. His name is Hebrew for "Who is like God?" which was the battle cry of the good angels when they cast the rebellious Lucifer and his followers into hell.
A story about St. Michael’s powerful intercession was told in a young marine’s letter home to his mother during the Korean War in 1950. It has been circulated ever since.
