Cathedral of Saint Michael the Archangel

Leaders of the heavenly armies, although we are unworthy, we always beseech you, to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
