Feast of St. Michael and All Angels

Behold, angels came and were ministering to [Jesus].
Feast of St. Michael and All Angels
This was written for our comfort, so that we would know how many angels serve us when one devil attacks us, if we fight valiantly. And if we stand firm, God does not let us suffer scarcity, but angels must first come from heaven and become our bakers, cellarers, and cooks and serve us in all our needs. This was not written for Christ's sake, for He does not need it. If the angels served Him, then they can and should serve us too.

From the Church Postil, sermon for Lent 1 on Matthew 4:1-11 (Luther's Works 76:374)
