Saint Michael the Archangel
In the New Testament, the term "archangel" is attributed to Michael. Only later was it extended to Gabriel and Raphael, the only three archangels recognized by the Church whose names are documented in the Bible. Saint Michael, "who like God?", is supreme head of the heavenly army, of angels faithful to God. Ancient patron of the Synagogue today is the patron of the Universal Church, which has always considered him of help in the fight against the forces of evil.
Patronage: Catholic Church, Police, Radiologists, Drug addicts
Etymology: Michael = who like God, from Hebrew
Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, archangels. On the day of the dedication of the basilica dedicated to Saint Michael, anciently built in Rome at the sixth mile of the Via Salaria, the three archangels are celebrated together, whose particular missions are revealed in Sacred Scripture: day and night they serve God and, contemplating his face, glorify him unceasingly.
