Saint Michael

Saint Michael, the Archangel, is a prominent figure and defender of the Church in Christian, particularly Catholic, scripture. Saint Michael is also the patron saint of Paratroopers, among other things (police officers, mariners, and grocers). 

The Prayer to Saint Michael reads:

"Saint Michael the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

Many current and former paratroopers carry a Saint Michael medallion with them. The Chicago Chapter offers a custom Saint Michael medallion on our eBay store
