The Commissioning of the Disciples

MT 28:16-20

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."

St. Michael the Archangel (Feast Day September 29)

This saint is not actually a saint; he is an angel, who is the leader of the army of God! Angels—messengers from God—appear frequently in Scripture, but only Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael are named. Michael appears in Daniel’s vision as “the great prince,”who defends Israel against its enemies; in the Book of Revelation, he leads God’s armies to final victory over the forces of evil. Devotion to Michael is the oldest angelic devotion, rising in the East in the fourth century. The Church in the West began to observe a feast honoring Michael and the angels in the fifth century. From tradition and Scripture, we know some of the main things St. Michael focuses on are combatting Satan, helping the faithful to heaven, and being a defender of all Christians and the Church. People call on St. Michael to ask for protection. He is the patron saint of doctors, police, and soldiers.

Family Prayer

Heavenly Father,

On this Memorial Day weekend, we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom. May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Bless the families of our fallen troops, and fill their homes and their lives with your strength and peace. In union with people of goodwill of every nation, embolden us to answer the call to work for peace and justice, and, thus, seek an end to violence and conflict around the globe.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
