Who is like God?






On September 29, the Church celebrates the Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.  Michael led the faithful angels in the battle that broke out in heaven when Lucifer rebelled.

The devil and his followers thought they could be like God by their own choice.

But Michael, whose name means “Who is like God?”, represents the fact that it is only by God’s sovereign choice that we can be exalted to his throne.

The battle between pro-life and pro-choice is the same battle. They are wrong who think that the only thing that matters in the end is their own choice, or that such a choice determines right and wrong.

Rather, it is God’s choice that matters, and when he chooses to create a little child, it is our duty to welcome and protect that precious gift.

    It is odd to think the comparison of violence of flesh, and violence of a story is valid. We have much less of a chance against evil in a heavenly battle. God, Satan, and Michael are not supernatural beings apart from one another. God is the unchanging point which unifies all that comes after and below within an abiding and providentially-ordained rational hierarchy – St Augustine. God is, was, and will be everything. The “Battle” is in one’s own mind. When one takes ownership of his own soul, only then can one enter the battle. We can pray for others’ souls, but we cannot redeem them. Winning other minds cannot necessarily win others’ souls. That is not in our realm. We are but a pitiful speck of God’s goodness. Our recklessness with our tiny piece of God’s love determines how long our souls are to be in our own purgatory. I understand your fight, Father, but Michael vs. Satan is an ongoing event.
