St. Michael

Saint 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 do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all evil spirits who prowl around the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael is the patron saint of police officers.  We have a rough job and it's hard to do it alone.  Having faith in God is a big help.  It allows you to have a quiet confidence that despite all the evil and crime we see, it's God who is charge.

 Sometimes we see bad things happen to good people.  Knowing that God is in charge is a great relief.  All things work to the good for those who believe in Him.  A child who gets run over by a car, may be saved from a future cancer or other bad thing.  We can't know the whole picture but we don't need to know everything.  We just need to know everything will be okay; that's what the SGT Says..
