Calistiana.com: Saint Michael the Archangel Apatite and Bali Silver Chaplet

 

Saint Michael the Archangel Apatite and Bali Silver Chaplet

A serene pairing of 6mm deep blue Apatite and delicate Bali Silver. A popular collectors stone, Apatite takes it's name from the Greek word "apate" to deceive. This is due to the gem's resemblance to other stones such as beryl and tourmaline. In spite of it's beauty, Apatite is not often used in jewelry because it is difficult to cut and polish*. Finished with a hand engraved Saint Michael the Archangel Medal. Reverse side has a second image of Saint Michael and an inscription that reads, "My Guardian Angel Be My Guide." Saint Michael is the patron saint of EMT's, police officers and against temptation.   $230          Limited Quantities

 

 

One of three angels mentioned by name in the Bible, Saint Michael is referred to as a comforter, protector of Israel, prince of the angels and commander of the armies of heaven. It was Saint Michael who prevented Isaac from being sacrificed by Abraham by providing a substitute sacrifice, wrestled with then blessed Jacob, announced to Sarah that she would bear a son and rescued Lot at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Christian tradition honors Saint Michael with four offices: champion of God's people, the one who rescues the souls of the faithful especially at the time of death, the one who brings souls to judgment and the enemy of Satan and the fallen angels.

 

 

How to pray the Chaplet of Saint Michael the Archangel

 

The history of this Chaplet goes back to a devout Servant of God,
Antonia d'Astonac, who had a vision of St. Michael. He told Antonia
to honor him by nine salutations to the nine Choirs of Angels. St.
Michael promised that whoever would practice this devotion in his
honor would have, when approaching Holy Communion, an escort of nine
angels chosen from each of the nine Choirs. In addition, for those
who would recite the Chaplet daily, he promised his continual
assistance and that of all the holy angels during life.
