"O how awesome is your form..."

Holy Archangels and Taxiarchs Michael and Gabriel (source)
O how awesome is your form, and how truly wondrous is your beauty, O Michael, for your glory is shown to us as surpassingly bright, for all those who desire you, and you endlessly work incomparable wonders!
As you are the beautiful and joyous pair that serves the commandments of the Master upon the earth, O Archangels [Michael and Gabriel], deliver from dangers, and shine upon all with your saving and divine light, from the divine Spirit.
-From the Canon for the Miracle of the Archangel Michael
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
