For the Synaxis of Archangel Michael


michaelO Michael, leader of hosts, who beholds things indescribable, since you are preferred with great privilege to the heavenly ones and stand in glory before the unapproachable throne, we beseech you to save by your intercessions, us who endure the hardships of tribulations and temptations. As you are clearly the foremost of the incorporeal angels, O Michael, leader of hosts, the minister of the divine Light, a witness and initiate thereof, save us who honor you annually in true worship, praising your faith in the Trinity.

Happy feastday, Michael! Above is shown an icon of Archangel Michael written by Borislava Katsarova.
