life by attending daily mass whenever possible. The Knights dispose
themselves to the Lord during Eucharistic adoration. Under

the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Chaplet of St. Michael, wearing
the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and honoring the

their lives to God. They choose a life of obedience, poverty and
chastity according to their state in life. They strive to
persevere in faith and good works by living a truly Christian life
amidst worldly distractions. They encounter some form of persecution
but are strengthened by the grace of suffering with Christ.
THE CHOIR OF ANGELS – PRAYER
By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels
may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life
and conducted in the life to come.
When one is called to live his Baptismal promises more fully,
he becomes attuned to the voice of God in his heart. Each response
is different but all who are called respond with a lively zeal as
if they have found a jewel. They slowly begin to fulfill
their Baptismal promises by living a responsible and sensible life
according to the state that God has designed for them. Under
the protection of St. Michael and the Choir of Angels, these Knights
strive to be faithful to their call as they constantly strive to
grow in their faith.
