And yet, when his feast – pleasing to GOD – is celebrated, he comes in every mountain church, be it ever so little and humble. Because it is not the furnishing of the room that is important to him, but JESUS and His sacrificing, the presence of his Empress Mary and the Saints and the hearts of those attending. In st Peter’s he does not therefore come more gloriously than in a little mountain church.
Because Michael was the first to rise up against Lucifer and call out: „Who is like unto GOD!”, he was given as a reward what Lucifer held. From a low choir, where he was before, he was the first Angel to be moved to the highest position, though not in the manner of the Seraphim and Cherubim in adoration of GOD. And yet, we know that GOD placed a Cherub with a sword at the entrance to Paradise to guard it. Interestingly, there was no such thing as a reward in Heaven before the fight of the faithful against the unfaithful Angels. This was instituted by GOD only afterwards.
And it is interesting that GOD responds to our works also in this way saying: „I will repay each of you according to his deeds.”
Are You a Fighter of GOD?
Are we fighters of GOD? – Should we not wish the ground would open and swallow us up, when this mighty Prince and Archangel appears? Do we fight for GOD’s matter? Or do we merely stand by moaning and groaning watching the rampant Godlessness? I have never heard Michael the Archangel moan. When he is bound, that is when he is not allowed to do anything any more, since he must respect the free will of man, then he just calls: „You’ll see: No one is like unto GOD!”
It is not GOD who punishes us, mankind punishes itself by disregarding the order and commandments of GOD. To think we have thereabove such mighty, absolutely unconquerable heroes as allies. –
