Synaxis of the Archangel Michael and the Other Bodiless Powers

O Supreme Leaders of the heavenly armies, * we, who are unworthy, ever beseech you, *  that by your prayers you may protect us * with the shelter of the wings of your immaterial glory, * watching over us, who fervently fall down and cry out: * “Deliver us from perils, * for you are the commanders of the Powers on high!” (Troparion, Tone 4)

O Supreme Leaders of the armies of God, * and ministers of the divine glory, * princes of angels and guides of men * ask for what is expedient for us, and for great mercy, * for you are the the Supreme Leaders of the Bodiless hosts. (Kontakion, Tone 2)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

The soul that really loves God and Christ, though it may do ten thousand righteousnesses, esteems itself as having wrought nothing, by reason of its insatiable aspiration after God. Though it should exhaust the body with fastings, with watchings, its attitude towards the virtues is as if it had not yet even begun to labour for them.

St. Macarius the Great
