St. Michael

Today, September 29, is traditionally known in the Western Christian calendar (i.e. in Roman Catholicism, Old Catholicism and the Anglican and Episcopal traditions) as Michaelmas - the Feast of the Archangel Michael. In recent years the day has been designated to celebrate all four archangels – Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel .

I really can't top last year's post, St. Michael the Archangel: Perspectives and Portraits, and so encourage you today to either revisit this post or check it out for the first time.

In addition, you may also find of interest the following Wild Reed posts that also focus on St. Michael: Michaelmas and The Archangel Michael as Gay Icon.

Peace and Happy Michaelmas!
