THE VISION OF POPE LEO XIII
The tradition of how the prayer was written by Pope Leo XIII:  'After celebrating Mass,  the Holy Father was conferring with his cardinals. Suddenly, he fell to the floor. The cardinals immediately called for a doctor. No pulse was detected, and the Holy Father was feared dead. Just as suddenly, Pope Leo awoke and said, "What a horrible picture I was permitted to see!" In this vision, God gave Satan the choice of one century in which to do his worst work against the Church. The devil chose the 20th century. This vision moved him to composed the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel below:

THE PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL
 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 host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

NINE SETS OF THREE BEADS
Nine Sets of three beads is the traditional chaplet for St Michael.  We understand the nine sets represent the nine choirs of angels. Here we have used dk brown 8 mm lava beads for the 'Aves' and for the 'Paters' are old Swarovski crystals (Austria) in a beautiful clear blue.  Each capped in antiqued filigrees.  This allows the blue to come forth in unexpected ways.
+
THREE SETS OF THREE BEADS
A traditional chaplet for short prayer. Pray: 1 Pater, 1 Ave, 1 Gloria, Repeat three times to complete. This prayer count was directed to whomever the saints medal was on the chaplet and the choices were many!

 ST MICHAEL
(Hebrew: 'Who is Like God')
St. Michael is mentioned and believed in both the Old (Jews) and New Testaments (Christians) as the ultimate protector and defender of their faith and as God's soldier, who defeated Satan in the war between good and evil. He is also recognized as the patron saint of the paratroopers around the world. (see Daniel (X, 12:2) where Michael fights Satan and his angels in a heavenly battle.) He is also the patron saint of policemen, knights, grocers, sickness and pilgrims.  In Normandy St. Michael is the patron of mariners in his famous sanctuary at Mont-Saint-Michel in the Diocese of Coutances.  St. Michael's color is blue.  Feast day, September 29th.

... SPIRITUAL BATTLE ...
"May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle we are told about in the Letter to the Ephesians: "Draw strength from the Lord and from His mighty power" (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had a very vivid recollection of this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to St. Michael throughout the Church. 
+
"Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ask everyone not to forget it and to recite it to obtain help in the battle against forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world." Pope John Paul II (St. Peter's Square, Sunday, April 24 1994)

DONT MESS WITH ST MICHAEL
When we were trying to complete this page on Nov 8, we had something happen.  Our new computer simply died. Died! It would not start. Tried all the tricks that normally work and - nothing. 'Well', I thought, 'St Michael, it is pretty obvious to me that some one does not want this page to go up! And that someone is the devil.'. It was a bit obvious - but there was an answer beyond our ability - so I prayed.  And the answer was there. 
+
'Call Michael'  I missed the point so I prayed to St Michael and said ," I did pray to you, St Michael'.  'Call Michael' , I heard again. 'Oh - Mike, of course!" So I blessed myself and crossed my fingers, dialed the number for our ISP and Mike Nuttal answered (I never get him on the phone, he is always either on call or busy). He was over in minutes - and he worked miracles with unknown buttons and we were up and running again.  ' Some kind of weird fluke', he said, 'probably won't happen again.' Thanks Mike! (Both of you)

I GOT GOOSE BUMPS
Well, the rosaries arrived and of course they are just wonderful and perfect.  I just now saw the new St. Michael chaplets and again I am speechless.  They are fantastic and I got goose bumps reading the story about the computer mishaps.  Diane C (Sacred Relics OK)

 WELL, THAT'S NOT 
THE END OF THIS SAGA, DIANE!
On friday, Nov 11, I tried to upload some corrections on this page and one of our four computers gave a loud bang and the screen went blank. Time for a prayer to St Michael. Finally, got it up and running but could not get back on the internet. So tried another computer, no internet connection. tried the one that I use to do the site, no internet. 
+
All the computers were working but could not get on the web.  We checked and confirmed that dreamscp.com (our ISP) was working so it had to be us. Carol, one of the guild, offered her computer so planned to drive over to her house - and the car, (new battery) would not start. No computer, no car! 
+
So called our other Mike ( our ISP man ). He was kind enough to come on a sunday morning, fixed all three computers and even jump-started the car! (Thanks, Mike) The mystery will remain, since the computers are wireless and not connected to the one that caused the original problem. Now a prayer to St. Michael and we will see if this uploads without further ado!  RW
