More About St. Michael the Archangel

The Catholic church refers to Michael the Archangel as St. Michael even though he is an angel, and not a saint whose recognition resulted from canonization. He is believed to be the prince of all of God’s angels, and the protector of the church.

There were several instances when St. Michael is believed to have appeared in the Bible, among them:

  • In the Book of Daniel, St. Michael is referenced as the “Great Prince and defender of your people”
  • As a sword-wielding angel who introduced himself to Joshua just before the fall of Jericho, as commander of the army of the Lord.
  • As the leader of the Angels who banished Satan and his minions according to the Book of Revelations
  • As an Archangel in the Epistle of Jude
  • In the Epistle to the Thessalonians, mention is made of an archangel who will announce the second coming of Christ. Though not identified, it is believed to be referring to St. Michael.

St. Michael is venerated as a healer, and protector of the Catholic Church. His feast day is celebrated on Sept. 29 but we are praying the novena in February.
