The Chaplet of St. Michael

The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel

The Chaplet of St. Michael is a powerful way to call upon St. Michael the Archangel and the Nine Choirs of Angels. St. Michael appeared to a devout Servant of God, Antonia d’Astonac, and told her that he wished to be honored by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominations, Powers, Virtues, Principalities, Archangels and Angels (Isa. 6:2; Gen. 3:24; Col. 1:16; Eph. 1:21; Rom. 8:38). In return, St. Michael promised: "Whoever would practice this devotion in his honor would have, when approaching the Holy Table, an escort of nine angels chosen from each of the nine Choirs. In addition, for the daily recital of these nine salutations, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life, and after death deliverance from Purgatory for themselves and all their relations."  The video below can help you pray this chaplet.

Make a Sincere Act of Contrition:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love.  I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
