The Archangel Michael

In the early 1960's my late father, Antonio Roselli, sculptor by art and by trade carved this 9' marble statue of St. Michael Archangel designed by the late Ferenc Varga, located at the Queen of Heaven Cemetery/Mausoleum in Chicago, Il.

This is the angel that we call upon to remove hexes, malocchio, and protect all that we love against harm, illness, curses, targeted, and random evil.

It is customary to invoke the name of the Archangel Michael on behalf someone who has consulted you about feeling powerless due to illness, feelings of impending doom, or a suspicion of being 'psychically' attacked. It is also customary to give them a medal of the Archangel Michael after the person has received spiritual cleansing and/or healing and they have been instructed on how to carry out their own protection ritual.

I like to use sea salt and a knife (to represent Michael's sword) in any rituals where I call upon Michael for assistance. I also call upon Michael when removing malocchio.

What isn't mentioned below is that Michael is also the patron of Italian practitoners of stregoneria, benedicaria, and psychic counselors.

Keep in mind that this archangel has immense power and has been around since way before organized religion.



Feast Days

29 September
8 May - Apparition of Saint Michael and Protector of Cornwall

Archangel. Leader of the army of God during the Lucifer uprising. Devotion is common to Muslims, Christians and Jews with writings about him in all three cultures. Considered the guardian angel of Israel.

The feast of the Apparition of Saint Michael commemorates the 6th century appearance of the archangel on Mount Gargano near Manfredonia in southern Italy. Michael requested a church built in his honor at the site. If you find medals or holy cards with 'relics' of Michael, they are probably rock chips from the cave, or pieces of cloth that have touched it.

Prayer For Help Against Spiritual Enemies

Glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts,
who stands always ready to give assistance to the people of God;
who fought with the dragon, the old serpent, and cast him out of heaven,
and now valiantly defends the Church of God that the gates of hell may never prevail against her,
I earnestly entreat you to assist me also,
in the painful and dangerous conflict which I sustain against the same formidable foe.
Be with me, O mighty Prince!
that I may courageously fight and vanquish that proud spirit,
whom you, by the Divine Power, gloriously overthrew,
and whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ,
has, in our nature, completely overcome;
so having triumphed over the enemy of my salvation,
I may with you and the holy angels,
praise the clemency of God who,
having refused mercy to the rebellious angels after their fall,
has granted repentance and forgiveness to fallen man.
