This digital art print of Saint Michael the Archangel is the perfect addition to your home decor or a great gift for birthdays, Confirmation, weddings, or Christmas.
St. Michael the Archangel is one of the three main archangels mentioned in the Bible--and of the three, Michael is probably the best known. He is considered the leader of all the angels and the leader of the army of God.
The four main jobs of St. Michael are the following: (1) to combat Satan, (2) to escort the faithful to heaven at their hour of death, (3) to be a champion and soldier of all Christians and of the Church, and (4) to assist in the heavenly judgment of men on earth.
St. Michael is mentioned a few times in the Bible. He is mentioned because he helps Daniel, he is said to guard--and even fight Satan over--the tombs of Moses and Eve in the Epistle of St. Jude, and he is mentioned in Revelation when he and his angels do battle with the dragon.
You can pray the St. Michael the Archangel prayer when you are faced with difficulty: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan, and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”
St. Michael the Archangel is most commonly depicted in soldier’s armor in the midst of a battle with Satan.
St. Michael the Archangel is the patron of grocers, soldiers, doctors, mariners, paratroopers, police, and those suffering from sickness.
