The Month of Saint Michael by Fr. Marin de Boylesve




Saint Michael According to the Bible 

and According to Tradition"


“Who is like unto God?” 


 To this day St. Michael the Archangel burns with the same fiery zeal for the glory of God as when he thrust Satan from the heights of Heaven. The defender of God's people, this mighty prince is always ready to come to the assistance of those who call upon him. If you are devoted to this great saint, wish to increase your devotion, or in need of spiritual encouragement in these dark times “The Month of Saint Michael” is for you.

Written by Fr. Marin de Boylesve, S.J. (1813-1892), 'The Month of Saint Michael' features short inspiring and encouraging meditations drawn from the Bible for every day for the month of September in honour of the great commander of the Heavenly hosts, as well as passages recounting the graces, apparitions and interventions of the Archangel according to holy Tradition and history. 

This new, first ever English edition of Fr. de Boylesve's text contains additional traditional prayers of protection and devotions, forty-two sacred illustrations, a biography of the author and informative annotations. A spiritual gem for any time of the year, not just September!

About the author: Fr. Marin de Boylesve is best remembered in France for spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart with his writings thereby promoting the cause for the construction of the Sacre Coeur Basilica in Paris.
