The Chaplet of St. Michael
The Chaplet of St. Michael is a wonderful way to honor this great Archangel along with the other nine Choirs of Angels.
What do we mean by Choirs? It seems that God has created various orders of Angels. 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). There may be more groupings but these are the only ones that
have been revealed to us. The Seraphim is believed to be the highest Choir, the most intimately united to God. while the Angelic Choir is the lowest.
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.
O God. come to my assistance. O Lord. make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father. etc.
[Say one Our Father and three Hail Mary’s after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels]
1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity. Amen.
2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim may the Lord grant us the grace to leave the ways of sin and run in the paths of Chrislian perfection. Amen.
