Traditions of St. Michael the Archangel

Lastly, this past Wednesday was Michaelmas, the feast of the dedication of the basilica of St. Michael the Archangel outside Rome. In the Traditional Rite, the Masses honoring the archangels are spread out on separate days, St. Gabriel (March 24, the eve of the Annunciation), St. Michael on September 29, and St. Raphael on October 24. Dr. Mike Foley has more background and customs on this week’s important feast day: https://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2021/09/michaelmas-day-and-its-customs.html 

In another NLM post, you can also see the other church, a shrine, dedicated to St. Michael where he appeared in a cave during the 5th century: https://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2020/05/the-shrine-of-st-michael-archangel-on.html
