My birthday is the Holy Guardian Angels, so angels have always been very special for me. St Michael has followed me all through my life, from my first church when I was a little girl, up to my ordination at Michaelmas and to the present day. It was so special at my ordination in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, to look up and see the St Michael window straight ahead of me. St Michael is also patron of radiology, among other things, and when I was Chaplain at the Churchill Hospital (which specialised in cancer treatment) I arranged for the bishop to come and dedicate the hospital chapel to St Michael.
