"We are accompanied and supported by the Angels of God"

Pope Emeritus Benedict joined Pope Francis on July 5th in consecrating Vatican City to St. Michael the Archangel during a blessing of a statue of St. Michael in the Vatican Gardens:

An excerpt from the Holy Father's address:
"We are not alone on the journey or in the trials of life, we are accompanied and supported by the Angels of God, who offer, so to speak, their wings to help us overcome so many dangers, in order to fly high compared to those realities that can weigh down our lives or drag us down. In consecrating Vatican City State to St. Michael the Archangel, I ask him to defend us from the evil one and banish him."
