and he was sent to bed without dinner - st. michael and devil satan statue

If all Satan got was a spanking he'd be getting off easy...

As well as mentions in Revelation 12 and Jude 1:6, the vivid image of St. Michael the Archangel as the one to personally throw the prince of darkness into hell is recited in the popular Prayer to St. Michael:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice 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 through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

That's supposed 2 say "off" easy not "of" easy..


BTW I believe that is "St. Michael Victorious Over Satan" by Scipione Tadolini. A Google search told me it is currently found in the rotunda of Boston College's Gasson Hall, but was originally commissioned in 1865 by some rich American to put on his front lawn (guess it got donated to the college sometime later).

That's quite the lawn art, then... I wish I could afford to have such a beautiful statue.
