Vespers with Litiya Vespers with Litiya for the Feast of the Synaxis of the Archangel Michael and the Other Bodiless Powers - The Synaxis of the Chief of the Heavenly Hosts, Archangel Michael and the Other Heavenly Bodiless Powers: Archangels Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Selaphiel, Jehudiel, Barachiel, and Jeremiel was established at the beginning of the fourth century at the Council of Laodicea, which met several years before the First Ecumenical Council. The 35th Canon of the Council of Laodicea condemned and denounced as heretical the worship of angels as gods and rulers of the world, but affirmed their proper veneration. The Highest Hierarchy includes the Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones. The Middle Angelic Hierarchy consists of three Ranks, Dominioins, Powers and Authorities. The Lowest Hierarchy includes the three Ranks, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels. Over all the Nine Ranks, the Lord appointed the Holy Archangel Michael (his name in Hebrew means “who is like unto God”), the faithful servitor of God, as Chief Commander.
