It's Michaelmas




It's the feast of St. Michael and the archangels.


St Michael the archangel
defend us in battle
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray,
And may thou, prince of the heavenly host by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl around the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen

I'm glad you've posted a picture of Michaelmas daisies.

You don't see them as much as you once did, at least, not in my neck of the woods.

I'd have tageed you too, but Philip tagged me the same time he tagged you!

And Michaelmas Daisies. If I hadn't have been a fan of Tom Brown's Schooldays, I'd never have even have heard the word "Michaelmas." :-D
