Archangel Michael Unsheathing the Sword
Saint Michael the Archangel, whose name signifies "Who is like God?" and was the war cry of the good angels in the battle fought in heaven against Satan and his followers. Holy Scripture describes Saint Michael as the "great captain" and leader of the forces of heaven in their triumph over the powers of Hell. He has been especially honored and invoked as patron and protector by the Church from the time of the Apostles.
Saint Michael is not only known as an ethereal angel but also as a Powerful Warrior; and is known as a Guardian and Protector. Although he is always called "the Archangel," the Greek Fathers and many others place him over all the angels - as Prince of the Seraphim.
Saint Michael can be invoked when you are in need of protection and, he is also the patron saint for doctors, police and soldiers.
