Lumen Christi’s mascot is the Archangel. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (334-336) states, “the whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of angels. From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. Besides each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life. Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God”
St. Michael is the leader of all the angels and so earns the title, “Archangel.” He has four main responsibilities which include: waging ongoing battle against Satan and all other fallen angels; saving the souls of the faithful from Satan especially at the time of death; escorting the faithful to heaven at the time of death; and serving as a champion for all Christians. St. Michael is the patron saint of police officers; paramedics and the military but is called upon by many for protection in times of turmoil.
Our School Prayer
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle,
be our protector 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,
Cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl around the Earth seeking the ruins of souls.
