(FEAST OF ST MICHAEL)
IN the Mass for the dead, the Church prays: May the standard-bearer, St Michael, bring them into the holy light. The learned explain this prayer by saying that St Michael has the honourable office of presenting to Jesus Christ, the judge, all the souls that depart this life in the grace of God.
