Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Archangel Michael.
Archangel Michael is one of the three Archangels mentioned in Christianity and appears early in the Old and New Testaments. His name means "Who is like EI (God)". Together with the Archangels Gabriel and Raphael, they are God's messengers for the protection of man.
His contribution was pivotal when he saved Lot's family from Sodom and when he presented himself to the Israelites to guide them after their deliverance from Egypt. In the future, as the New Testament states, Archangel Michael will be the one to announce the Second Coming.
Commanders of God's armies and ministers of the divine glory, princes of the bodiless angels and guides of mankind, ask for what is good for us, and for great mercy, supreme commanders of the Bodiless Hosts.
