St. Michael Archangel's Apparition on Mount Gargano - May 8th.

SANCTE Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.

Oratio Papa Leo XIII
In Nomine Patris, et Filii et Spiritus Sancti.
Princeps gloriosissime caelestis militiae, sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio et colluctatione, quae nobis adversus principes et potestates, adversus mundi rectores tenebrarum harum, contra spiritualia nequitiae, in caelestibus.
Veni in auxilium hominum, quos Deus creavit inexterminabiles, et ad imaginem similitudinis suae fecit, et a tyrannide diaboli emit pretio magno. Proeliare hodie cum beatorum Angelorum exercitu proelia Domini, sicut pugnasti contra ducem superbiae Luciferum, et angelos eius apostaticos: et non valuerunt, neque locus inventus est eorum amplius in coelo. Sed proiectus est draco ille magnus, serpens antiquus, qui vocatur diabolus et satanas, qui seducit universum orbem; et proiectus est in terram, et angeli eius cum illo missi sunt.
En antiquus inimicus et homicida vehementer erectus est. Transfiguratus in angelum lucis, cum tota malignorum spirituum caterva late circuit et invadit terram, ut in ea deleat nomen Dei et Christi eius, animasque ad aeternae gloriae coronam destinatas furetur, mactet ac perdat in sempiternum interitum.
Virus nequitiae suae, tamquam flumen immundissimum, draco maleficus transfundit in homines depravatos mente et corruptos corde; spiritum mendacii, impietatis et blasphemiae; halitumque mortiferum luxuriae, vitiorum omnium et iniquitatum.
Ecclesiam, Agni immaculati sponsam, faverrimi hostes repleverunt amaritudinibus, inebriarunt absinthio; ad omnia desiderabilia eius impias miserunt manus. Ubi sedes beatissimi Petri et Cathedra veritatis ad lucem gentium constituta est, ibi thronum posuerunt abominationis et impietatis suae; ut percusso Pastore, et gregem disperdere valeant.
Adesto itaque, Dux invictissime, populo Dei contra irrumpentes spirituales nequitias, et fac victoriam.
Te custodem et patronum sancta veneratur Ecclesia; te gloriatur defensore adversus terrestrium et infernorum nefarias potestates; tibi tradidit Dominus animas redemptorum in superna felicitate locandas. Deprecare Deum pacis, ut conterat satanam sub pedibus nostris, ne ultra valeat captivos tenere homines, et Ecclesiae nocere.
Offer nostras preces in conspectu Altissimi, ut cito anticipent nos misericordiae Domini, et apprehendas draconem, serpentem antiquum, qui est diabolus et satanas, ac ligatum mittas in abyssum, ut non seducat amplius gentes.
The Mass of May 8 in honor of the Apparition of the Archangel St. Michael on Mount Gargano is another of the illustrious victims of the first pruning suffered by the Roman Missal before the post-conciliar reforms. The new code of rubrics of the antipope John XXIII relegated it to the section of the masses pro aliquibus locis as well as the mass of the Invention of the Cross (May 3) and that of San Juan before Portam Latinam (May 6), which splendidly opened the month of flowers. The reason was the duplication of parties of the same owner. The Archangel St. Michael, in fact, is also commemorated on September 29. However, while this feast also recalls all the angelic spirits, that of today was peculiar to the great prince of the heavenly hosts, having been extended to the universal Church by St. Pius V.

The apparition referred to today's calendula took place in the year 490 in southern Italy, more precisely on Mount Gargano, an important massif that forms a promontory in the Apulia region on the Adriatic coast (it is known as the spur of the boot of Italy). A neighbor of Siponte had lost a precious specimen of his herd of bulls and when searching for it he noticed that the animal was in the entrance of a cave. He shot an arrow towards him to scare him away and to return, but the dart turned and returned to the rancher, who, astonished, went to tell the episode to the bishop. He arranged three days of fasting and prayers and went to the cave. While praying outside her, a spirit appeared to him who introduced himself as the Archangel Michael, "the one who permanently attends in the presence of God." He told the bishop that he wanted a church built in that cave.

The prelate doubted and in this season the town was threatened by the invasion of the barbarians. St. Michael reappeared to the bishop and assured him that there was nothing to fear if there was sincere and firm faith, promising to ward off danger, as it was, for the invaders withdrew. Even so the bishop continued with his vacillations and decided to go to the Pope, going to Rome, where he presented the case. The Supreme Pontiff prescribed the same thing that he had arranged the first time he heard the story: three days of fasting and prayer before the cave, which was put into practice. The holy Archangel manifested himself for the third time and this time unequivocally. He told the bishop that it was not necessary since he consecrated the cave because it had already been sanctified with the angelic presence. As he entered his interior, he saw with astonishment a splendid altar covered with red cloth and with a crystal cross. At the entrance, the miraculous footprint was imprinted, as if wanting to witness the supernatural visit.
The St. Michael Sanctuary on Mount Gargano became an important pilgrimage destination and contributed to the spread of devotion to the Archangel and had echoes elsewhere in Christianity. In Rome, for example, one hundred years after the appearance in the Gargano, Pope St. Gregory I stopped the plague that had been declared by the invocation of St. Michael, whom he had seen on top of the mausoleum of Hadrian brandishing a sword. In the Middle Ages the place became a fortress: the famous and impregnable Castel Sant'Angelo. In the 8th century, the bishop of Avranches in Normandy built a sanctuary after having visited St. Michael three times (as in Mount Gargano). A promontory was also chosen: the one that rises up against the Norman-Breton coast and becomes an island due to the phenomenon of high tide, bearing the famous name of Mont Saint-Michel, which still houses today a magnificent abbey with its imposing castle . Mount Gargano was still the scene of prodigies when the Archangel appeared again to stop a terrible plague unleashed in 1656. Focus of great spirituality, it is no coincidence that in its vicinity stands the convent of San Giovanni Rotondo, where Padre Pio was sanctified. Pietrelcina.

(Ps. CII, 20) BENEDÍCITE Dóminum, omnes Angeli ejus: poténtes virtúte, qui fácitis verbum ejus, ad audiéndam vocem sermónum ejus, allelúja, allelúja. (Ps. ibid., 1) Bénedic, ánima mea, Dómino: et ómnia, quae intra me sunt, nómini sancto ejus. V. Glória Patri… R. Amen.


DEUS, qui, miro órdine, Angelórum ministéria hominúmque dispénsas: concéde propítius ; ut, a quibus tibi ministrántibus in caelo semper assístitur, ab his in terra vita nostra muniátur. Per Dóminum… R. Amen.


Léctio libri Apocalýpsis beáti Joánnis Apóstoli (Apoc. I, 1-5). IN diébus illis: Significávit Deus quae opórtet fíeri cito, mittens per Angelum suum servo suo Joánni, qui testimónium perhíbuit verbo Dei, et testimónium Jesu Christi, quaecúmque vidit. Beátus qui legit et audit verba prophetíae hujus: et servat ea, quae in ea scripta sunt: tempus enim prope est. Joánnes septem ecclésiis, quae sunt in Asia. Grátia vobis, et pax ab eo, qui est, et qui erat, et qui ventúrus est: et a septem spirítibus, qui in conspéctu throni ejus sunt: et a Jesu Christo, qui est testis fidélis, primogénitus mortuórum, et princeps regum terrae, qui diléxit nos, et lavit nos a peccátis nostris in sánguine suo.

Allelúja , allelúja. V. Sancte Míchaël Archángele, defénde nos in praélio: ut non pereámus in treméndo judício. Allelúja. V. Concússum est mare, et contrémuit terra, ubi Archángelus Míchaël descéndit de caelo. Allelúja.

+ Sequéntia sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthaéum (Matth. XVIII, 1-10). IN illo témpore: Accessérunt discípuli ad Jesum, dicéntes: Quis, putas, major est in regno caelórum ? Et ádvocans Jesus párvulum státuit eum in médio eórum, et dixit: Amen dico vobis, nisi convérsi fuéritis, et efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum caelórum. Quicúmque ergo humiliáverit se sicut párvulus iste, hic est major in regno caelórum. Et qui suscéperit unum párvulum talem in nómine meo, me súscipit. Qui autem scandalizáverit unum de pusíllis istis, qui in me credunt, éxpedit ei ut suspendátur mola asinária in collo ejus, et demergátur in profúndum maris. Vae mundo a scándalis. Necésse est enim ut véniant scándala: verúmtamen vae hómini illi, per quem scándalum venit. Si autem manus tua, vel pes tuus scandalízat te, abscíde eum, et prójice abs te: bonum tibi est ad vitam íngredi débilem, vel claudum, quam duas manus, vel duos pedes habéntem, mitti in ignem aetérnum. Et si óculus tuus scandalízat te, érue eum, et prójice abs te: bonum tibi est cum uno óculo in vitam intráre, quam duos óculos habéntem mitti in gehénnam ignis. Vidéte ne contemnátis unum ex his pusíllis: dico enim vobis quia Angeli eórum in caelis semper vident fáciem Patris mei, qui in caelis est. Credo.

(Apoc. VIII, 3 et 4) Stetit Angelus juxta aram templi, habens thuríbulum áureum in manu sua, et data sunt ei incénsa multa: et ascéndit fumus arómatum in conspéctu Dei, allelúja.


HÓSTIAS tibi, Dómine, laudis offérimus, supplíciter deprecántes: ut eásdem, angélico pro nobis interveniénte suffrágio, et placátus accípias, et ad salútem nostram proveníre concédas. Per Dóminum… R. Amen.


(Dan. III, 58) Benedícite, omnes Angeli Dómini, Dóminum: hymnum dícite, et superexaltáte eum in saécula, allelúja.


BEÁTI Archángeli tui Michaélis intercessióne suffúlti: súpplices te, Dómine, deprecámur ; ut, quod ore proséquimur, contingámus et mente. Per Dóminum… R. Amen.
