"These Little Ones"

Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about the loving nickname Jesus has for us--Yeoflittlefaiths? Ολιγο'πιστοι (Oligo'pistoi) is that Greek word coined by Matthew to convey Jesus' nickname--that term of endearment and affection for His disciples then and now--Yeoflittlefaiths.

Here in today's Gospel text for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels, Jesus is again speaking to His disciples--and to us--as His Ολιγο'πιστοι, His Yeoflittlefaiths, ... having been made citizens of heaven as His dear, Baptized children, have the benefit of all the host of heaven including the mighty angels of our Lord under the command of the arch-angel Michael, who having cast Satan and his army of angels out of the heavenly realm, now are employed by God to guard and protect from al harm of body and soul to deliver you safely to the place our Father in heaven has prepared for you.
