firstly, if you do not know who this saint is, here is a link:http://www.summitlighthouse.org/archangel-michael-faith/. I believe, if you are a true empath, you have St. Michael's spirit inside of you. A burning desire to be good, to do good, to protect others, to fight for the underDog, to be bewildered and confused when people do bad things to another...because you yourself cannot do such bad things towards others...it is not your nature to do so. You are offended and repulsed by evil, by darkness, you cannot stand by idly and watch or listen as somebody abuses another, you speak up or put yourself into the situation even tho you may be hurt badly. I grew up in a Italian catholic family but for various reasons by a young age i became greatly disenchanted by organized relegion . So even as a child going to sunday mass and attending Catechism classes to achieve my Communion, i was a bored, inattentive , disbelieving catholic. Not disbelieving in God, but in the many stories in the Bible, the sermons the preacher preached, the rediculous amount of saints that my own mother would pray to (Italians have way too many...as im sure with greeks, portugese, mexicans, brazilians, etc)...it all just sparked something in my young 11 year old mine, a voice that cried out ''BullShit!!!''. And this relates to being an empath...that feeling of ''just knowing''...knowing that a lot of what i was hearing and being taught was most likely stories that came from Man, lies /exxagerations /half truths, distortions made up by Man to control the populace and instil false fears, keep them inline. So anyways, being a bad catholic who half listened to his church and it's teachers, i didnt follow the bible stories, i did not know any prayers, i did not know any saints....for i was and still am Spiritual. All there is to me is the Creator, i do believe He has his angels who have great purpose and that we humans have a spirit . When our bodies perish at death here on earth, our spirits return back to the Creator/ God , we go over what we did here while alive on Earth and from there God gives us a new purpose to fullfill , which could be in heaven, earth again or other planets /universes. I will say tho , the one saint i do actually believe in is Saint Michael. When i read his story of who he is, what he stands for..i just ''knew'' . As in i know him because i am like him. His spirit is in me, the spirit of freedom from evil, the one who offers his protection and guidance, the resilient one who never gives up or gives in to any dark forces trying to overpower and over rule us. As an empath , do you also feel the calling to do good and fight for all things good and pure?
