The Chaplet of St. Michael is a powerful way to call upon St. Michael the Archangel along with the Nine Choirs of Angels, especially in acts of spiritual warfare. 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).

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.

In these last nine days (of the 54-Day Novena for our Nation), I am asking all Special Forces Prayer Warriors to add the mighty Chaplet of St. Michael. This powerful chaplet is designed to call upon St. Michael and all nine choirs of angels to engage battle with you.
