St. Michael Chaplet Prayer App
Pray the St. Michael Chaplet
The St. Michael Chaplet is perhaps one of the most powerful devotions we have in spiritual warfare. It asks for the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel along with the Nine Choirs of Angels in our fight against the temptations of the devil.
The Chaplet of St. Michael follows a similar format as many other rosary chaplets with the Our Father and three Hail Mary’s being said after each of the nine salutations made in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels. The chaplet concludes with a special prayer to the glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, and guardian of souls, asking him to intercede for us and come to our assistance in our spiritual battle against the devil.
History of the St. Michael Chaplet
The story of the St. Michael Chaplet begins with a vision of St. Michael that was granted to St. Antonia d’Astonac. In the vision, St. Michael told Antonia that the way to honor him was with nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels. The nine Choirs of Angels we ask for intercession are the celestial Choir of Seraphim, celestial Choir of Cherubim, the celestial Choirs of Thrones, Dominions, and Virtues, the celestial Choir of Powers, celestial Choir of Principalities, the celestial Choir of Archangels, and finally the choir of Angels.
Within each of the nine intercessions made during the chaplet, the nine Choirs of Angels are honored and asked to help us in our spiritual battles:
- Practice perfect charity
- Resist sin and obtain Christian perfection
- Obtain sincere humility
- Grace to overcome our senses and control our passions
- Protection from evil and falling into temptation
- Protection from the temptations of the devil
- Practice perfect obedience
- Perseverance in faith and good works
- Protection throughout our mortal life.
Benefits of the Devotion
St. Michael told St. Antonia in the vision that anyone who practiced this devotion would have an escort of nine angels chosen from the nine Choirs of Angels at each reception of Holy Communion. Moreover, to anyone who prayed the chaplet daily, St. Michael and all the holy angels would come to their assistance during life and death. Those who practiced the devotion faithfully would also be delivered from purgatory, along with their relations.
