A film titled St Michael (Tenkasi to Rajavoor) is being produced in English. It is understood that St Michael had come to Tenkasi even before Jesus Christ was born. He had come there to spread the Good News. He has travelled from Tenkasi to Rajavoor which is situated between Nagercoil and Kanyakumari.
The film St Michael is directed by Titan. His first venture “Thottu kattava” is scheduled to release next month. All the crew members of this film are from Hollywood. Titan is also donning the role of St Michael. The shooting of the film is to commence soon and will speak about St Michael evangelization which he did from Tenkasi to Rajavoor.
Even today the people who are mainly Catholics celebrate the feast day of St Michael with pomp and glory. The annual feast starts on the first Friday of May with a flag hoisting followed by a ten day Mass and adoration. The eighth and ninth days are marked with a car procession to St. Michael, the Arch angel. People affiliated to different faith without any difference gather there as well.
St. Michael, who ranks among the seven archangels, is also one of the three angels mentioned by name in the Scriptures, the others being St. Raphael and St. Gabriel. St. Michael is spoken of twice in the Old Testament, and twice in the New. St Michael is placed over all the angels, as prince of the Seraphim. He is the special patron of sick people, mariners, and grocers.
