Catholic Pocket Dictionary – Feast of Angels


Since the fifth century churches were dedicated to the holy angels. There was a famous apparition of Saint Michael on Mount Garganus, an event which Baronius places in the year 493; and this apparition gave occasion to the feast of Saint Michael which the Church keeps on September 29, and which is mentioned in the martyrologies of Saints Jerome, Bede, and others, as the Dedication of Saint Michael.
