Background of the Chaplet
of Saint Michael Chaplet
Saint Michael appearing one day to Antonia d’ Astonac, a most devout Servant of God, told her that he wished to be honored by nine salutations corresponding to the nine choirs of angels, which should consist of one Our Father and three Hail Marys in honor of each of the angelic choirs.

Promises of Saint Michael
Whosoever would practice this devotion in his honor before receiving Holy Communion, would have an escort of nine angels chosen from each one of the nine choirs.

In addition, for the daily recital of these nine salutations, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life, and after death, deliverance from purgatory for themselves and their relations.

ACT OF CONTRITION

Oh My God,
I am heartily sorry,
for having offended You,
and I detest all my sins,
because of Your just punishments,
but most of all because
they offend You, my God,
who are all-good and
deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve,
with the help of Your grace,
to sin no more and to avoid
the near occasion of sin.  Amen
