REFLECTIONS

"Jesus' Baptism"

Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven, submit himself to John's baptism? John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of the "baptism" of Jesus bloody death upon the cross. Jesus' baptism is the acceptance and the beginning of his mission as God's suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father's will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust and submission to God?

Knights of St. Michael for Mary's Ark of Salvation

Catholics are called to honor St. Michael in the Year of the Eucharist for he is the Protector of God's People and the Guardian of the Eucharist

To fight against Satan.
To rescue the souls of the faithful from the power of the enemy, especially at the hour of death.
To be the champion of God's people, the Jews in the Old Law, the Christians in the New Testament; therefore he was the patron of the Church, and of the orders of knights during the Middle Ages.
To call away from earth and bring men's souls to judgment.

The Fatima Prayer

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.

HOW YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN HONOR ST. MICHAEL

St. Thomas says of St. Michael: "Michael is the breath of the Redeemer's spirit who will, at the end of the World, combat and destroy antichrist, as he did Lucifer in the beginning.

St. Michael is the protector and defender of God's chosen people.He came with the Israelites from Egypt and accompanied them through the desert. It was He who gave them, from God, the Ten Commandments and during the thousands of years that elapsed before the coming of Christ he was their champion and defender.

He is now the defender of the Catholic Church and of all the faithful whom he defends against the constant assaults of the devil. He is invoked in sickness and most especially at the hour of death, when his all powerful help is so much needed, for then it is that Satan makes his last and fiercest attack on the Christian soul, seeking with craft and cunning, with fears and despair to drag it down to Hell.

In the prayers formerly said by the priest and people after Mass there was a special and beautiful prayer to St. Michael imploring his help for the Church. We should make it a sacred duty to join fervently in this important prayer.(Tan Books - St Michael and the Angels) It runs as follows:

"Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, oh! Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust down to hell Satan and with him all the wicked spirits, who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

THE GREAT ENEMY OF THE EVIL ONE
Feast Day, September 29 • St. Michael the Archangel

"I have been given a special mission for the world by the Father Almighty. I am to intercede in helping all Christians against all torments which come to them from the evil one. My friends, please call on me as frequently as you wish. I am at your disposal. I am a great enemy of the evil one. No evil force can prevail against me.

Do not be afraid my dear friends. I am your guardian in these times of confusion, times of torment, and times of great temptations. I, Michael will help you in the time of the great tribulation. Have no fear my friends and let me intercede for you. I am part of the great plan of salvation. I too, love you my friends. I am in the forefront of the great battle ahead before all the other angels in this holy war which has begun. I, Michael am with you. Do not be afraid. Yours in Christ the King, St. Michael, your great guard and protector." (Private Revelation to Josefina Maria September 29, 1993 Book 2 Piligramage to the Heart of Man - Page 111)
