One day St. Michael Archangel appeared to the servant of God, Maria Dastonaco. The Archangel told the religious lady that He wished to be honored by the prayer of the 9 Salutations. The 9 salutations correspond to the 9 choirs of Angels. The Rosary consists of 1 Our Father and 3 Hail Mary’s in honor of each of the Choir of Angels.

Those who practice this Devotion to the honor of the Archangel are promised to receive a lot of blessings and also St. Michael promised to send un Angel of each Choir of Angels to accompany the faithful at the hour of receiving Holy Communion and to those who pray the 9 salutations every day he assures them that they will receive his assistance continually, in this life and the next. Also they will be accompanied by all Angels and their loved ones, parents and family members will be saved from Purgatory.
