anonymous asked:

How did you and Castiel meet? As in, did you see him first - did you notice him when you realised a missionary was in your area to convert those to the church of St. Michael, or did you notice him for another reason? Or was it Cas who noticed you first? What happened?

I’ve already answered your questions with comic pages, so let me just recap ♥

When Cas came to the village of St. Michaels it was Dean who noticed him first and it wasn’t really because he keeps an eye on bothersome Christians. (See here)

It was also Dean who showed himself to Castiel. (See here)

In case you’re interested in reading it in some more detail, you can check out this short story:

New Lands

Summary: Castiel gets to know the lands where he will try to spread Christianity under the banner of St. Michael’s Church. Unkown to him, the local god is watching him with interest.

Also of interest: my about page where I also link to some frequently asked questions and a tentative chronological masterpost of plot relevant answers ♥

For the Freedom of the Catholic Church in America

Saint Michael, the archangel defend us in battle.
Be our protection again the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
By the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all evil spirits who prowl about he world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen

The Parish Church of St Michael, Berg am Laim is one of the richest and most important religious buildings in the city of Munich, Germany. The late baroque church was built in 1735-1751 by order of the Elector and Archbishop of Cologne Clemens August of Bavaria, designed by the Bavarian architect Johann Michael Fischer. The interior of the church is considered a masterpiece of the Southern German rococo.

Coventry Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of St Michael, commonly known as Coventry Cathedral, is the seat of the Bishop of Coventry and the Diocese of Coventry, in Coventry, West Midlands, England

The city has had three cathedrals. The first was St Mary’s, a monastic building, of which only a few ruins remain. The second was St Michael’s, a 14th-century Gothic church later designated cathedral, that remains a ruined shell after its bombing during the Second World War. The third is the new St Michael’s Cathedral, built after the destruction of the former.
