Generally speaking, a consensus of the definition of Saints is, "People who, by their joyful service, have extended the Love of God to others..." The celebration of "Saint Michael the ArchAngel Day" and all the Angels known throughout the world is "celebrated as Michaelmas" and ties in directly with last weeks Autumnal Equinox celebration for in olden times the great season of harvesting one's crops had to be completed by the date of the Michaelmas or the last Sunday in September so that a new cycle of planting and farming could begin. In the present day this is considered to be a fine time for clearing the slate and planting the seeds for new beginnings and fresh new journeys.
Archangel Michael whose name in ancient scripts means; "Who is like unto God..." is most often thought of as the mighty Angelic Warrior who drove the rebellious fallen Angel "Lucifer" from the kingdom of Heavenly paradise. Throughout history Michael has always been the most venerated and popular of the three Archangels mentioned in the scriptures. The other two being "Archangel Rafael" and "Archangel Gabriel". It is the "Archangel Michael" who is described as the embodyment of Love, Compassion and Divine Enlightenment in all of the recorded writings.
Throughout European countries many monasteries and churches are dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michael and are usually located in high places near the ocean. Saint Michael's feast day was celebrated with the tradition of baking special large loaves of bread made, offered up and eaten only on the "Michaelmas feastday". From the earliest centuries it had been a favorite practice in many communities to build Saint Michael shrines on the tops of mountains and hills. Archangel Michael is most commonly invoked as the protector of the innocent as well as a mediator for the dying and is the presenter of souls to God at their entrance into Heaven. Archangel Michael is therefore honored as the actual patron of all the holy Souls. In many sections of Europe and England, wine consumed on this day was called; "Saint Michael's Love" and this ancient ritual is preserved even to the present day.
Archangel Michael and all patron Saints and Angels serve to eliminate the negativity and confusion that is often referred to as "the dark night of the Soul," as they are called upon to bring the comfort of lasting Peace and eternal Love to the sincere petitioner. The raising of Spiritual Awareness and the unfolding of Divine Wisdom beckons to each human heart to Love unconditionally and aide in the relief of sorrow and suffering wherever it is found. This is the relentless call which comes unceasingly forward from within the realms of all the Angels and Saints.
