St. Michael the Archangel
Feast Day November 8th
St. Michael (Michael means ‘Who is like God’) is the leader of the heavenly hosts and the greatest adversary of Satan. Under his leadership the faithful Angels defeated Lucifer and cast him in to Hell, the chieftain of the rebellious angels. This feast was instituted at the time of Emperor Constantine the Great in the fourth century.
St. Michael became patron of Kiev, capital of the Kievan-Rus Kingdom (now known as Ukraine) since the early days of Christianity in our country.
The Church honors all the angelic choirs on the same day, when it pays a tribute of honor to their leader, St. Michael.

PRAYER TO ST. MICCHAEL

‘Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.’

Continued from last week bulletin- The Divine Liturgy
The Consecration – The priest says silently the prayer before the elevation. The deacon makes the sign of the cross and a bow; then crossing his hands to remind the people that the Divine Liturgy is a mystical representation and renewal of Christ’s sacrifice upon the cross, he lifts up the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
The priest exhorts the people to give thanks to the Blessed Virgin for having born Christ, without Whom the Sacrifice of the Divine Liturgy would not be possible. The people thank the Mother of God for such a great sacrifice as Jesus Christ’s by singing the hymn in her honor. During the hymn the priest says silently the prayers for the living and the dead and recommends to God by name persons for whom he wishes to pray.
The Exclamation: The priest turns to the people and asks God to bless them. The people make the sign of the cross when blessed as a sign of their willingly taking up their own cross. The people sing the “Our Father”, whereby the people prepare their hearts to receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion.
The priest asks God silently for the grace to receive worthily and to distribute Holy Communion to the faithful, that his personal sins do not stop God’s graces from reaching the people. The priest makes three small bows, saying each time: O God, have mercy on me, a sinner. The priest uncovers the chalice and takes the Great Host to break it, the priest says aloud: Holy things for the holy.
Elevation and breaking of the Ahnets (Lamb of God): The priest places the four divided parts of the Ahnets on the four sides of the paten. He takes the upper part and makes therewith the sign of the cross above the holy chalice and then puts it into the chalice. Thus the Body and the Blood of Jesus Christ are reunited again, recalling the Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord, when His soul re-entered His glorified Body on the day of the resurrection.
Holy Communion – The priest covers the chalice with the purifier, puts the spoon therein, makes a reverent bow, takes the chalice and descending to the Royal Doors exclaims: “Approach with the fear of God and with faith.” The faithful of the Ukrainian Catholic Church follow the original custom of receiving Holy Communion as the Risen Christ, His body re-united with His blood. Holy Communion takes us back in time to the “Last Supper.” After the Communion of the people, the priest places the spoon, in the chalice, covers the chalice with the purifier, and blesses the people. The blessing with the Blessed Sacrament is God blessing all his people, those who were properly disposed and not, as Christ gave to His disciples and apostles before Ascending into heaven.
The priest carries the Holy Gifts to the table of preparation, commemorating the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ, incenses and then returns to the Altar. The people stand during the song of thanksgiving and remain standing up to the end of the Divine Liturgy remembering the Risen Christ. The priest gives the Dismissal Prayer.
