A mysterious straight line has been recently discovered which goes from Ireland to Israel and unites seven monasteries and sanctuaries related to the Archangel St. Michael.
The seven sanctuaries are at a great distances from each other, but are somehow perfectly aligned.
The “Sacred Line of St. Michael the Archangel” symbolizes, according to tradition, the sword blow that the Archangel inflicted upon the devil to send him to hell after the battle in the heavens between faithful angels and rebellious angels who, led by Lucifer, they had turned against God.
As if all this wasn’t strange enough, the three most important sanctuaries on the mysterious line are at exactly the same distance from one another: the beautiful and famous abbey of Mont Saint-Michel, on the border between the French regions of Normandy and Brittany; The Sacra di San Michele, in the Italian valley of Susa, Piedmont; And the sanctuary of Monte Sant’Angelo, in the also Italian Mount Gargano, situated in the region of Apulia.
Get to know all seven sanctuaries of the Sacred Line:
1. Skelling Michael.
The outline of the Sacred Line begins in Ireland on a deserted island where Archangel Michael would have appeared to St Patrick to help him free the country from the devil’s attacks. It is on this island that the first monastery rises: the one of Skellig Michael or Sceilig Mhichíl, in Gaelic language (“Rock of Miguel”).
This island was also chosen for the production of the latest Star Wars movie – Episode 7.
2. Saint Michael’s Mount
Traveling south, the line passes St. Michael’s Mount in England: it is an island of Cornwall which, at low tide, joins the mainland. In this place, San Miguel would have spoken with a group of fishermen.
3. Mont Saint Michel
The Sacred Line then proceeds to France, crossing another famous island that also joins the low tide land: the spectacular Mont Saint-Michel, another site of the Archangel’s appearance.
The beauty, history and artistic richness of this sanctuary and its bay on the Normandy coast make it one of the most visited places in the whole of France, and guaranteed its proclamation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.
Mont Saint-Michel Was already surrounded by strong mysticism since the High Middle Ages. More than 1,300 years ago, in 709, the Archangel appeared, according to tradition, to the bishop of Avranches, Saint Aubert, requesting the construction of the sanctuary. Work began shortly after, but the Benedictine abbey was only ready in the tenth century.
4. Sacra Di San Michele.
About 1,000 kilometers along the line, in the Piedmontese valley of Susa, stands the fourth sanctuary: the Sacra di San Michele (pronounced “Mikéle” in Italian).
It’s construction began around the year 1000 and, over the centuries, new structures have been added. This is the case of the inn built by the Benedictine monks, since the holy place was on the pilgrim route of the Via Francigena, the ancient road from France to Rome.
5. Santuário do Monte Sant’Angelo.
Another 1,000 kilometers along the line is the Italian region of Apulia, more precisely Mount Gargano. There, a cave of very difficult access became a sacred place and saw the Sanctuary of St. Michael the Archangel, begun in the year of 490.
It marks the first appearance of the Archangel Michael to St. Lawrence of Majorca.
6. Symi Monastery
Leaving Italy, the fascinating St. Michael’s Sacred Line arrives at the sixth sanctuary, now on the Greek island of Symi: here the monastery houses one of the largest effigies of the Archangel in the world, three meters high.
7. Mount Carmelo Monastery
The Sacred Line ends in Israeli territory: the Mount Carmelo Monastery in Haifa. The site has been revered since antiquity, but the construction of the Christian shrine dates back to the twelfth century.
