The St. Michael Police Officer Coin. As the patron saint of police officers, St. Michael knows what it means to face the threat of evil and imminent danger. Saint Michael had a long history of battling the devil. Throughout Scriptures, he’s the warrior angel, standing up to and defeating Satan many times. His largest challenge and triumph over evil takes place in the Book of Revelations (12:7-8) when the devil tries to revolt against God: “there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
The front side of the St. Michael Police Officer Coin shows a winged St. Micheal in full battle armour, sword in one hand and the head of his foe in the other. The background of the coin is a shield. On the reverse side of the St. Michael Police Officer Coin we find the the Police Officers Prayer to St. Micheal, inlayed on a shield with a thin blue line, the line all Police Officers must walk.
Saint Michael, heaven’s glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God’s premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional
eyes on your earthly force.
Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
investigation and wise judgement.
Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and
law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.
You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences
with the devil that the police officer’s lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.
And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the
throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all
the people. Amen.
