Hagiography Archangel Michael | History of the Icon

The brilliant magistrate of the inward forces Archangel and Chief Commander Michael plays a key role in both the Old and the New Testament. His interventions are many and with the purpose of people’s salvation.
Archangel Michael appeared to Abraham at Isaac’s sacrifice. Then to Lot when he redeemed him with his family from the Sodom disaster. He appeared to Jacob when he was saved by his brother Esau who wanted to murder him.

The Archangel Michael, in the form of nebula and fire, traveled in front of the Israelites when they were freed from the Egyptian bonds, showing them the way to the Promised Land.
When Lucifer, who belonged to the angels, revolted because of his pride against God, he wanted to become His likeness. A bunch of angels broke down from God and followed him. These angels, along with Lucifer, were persecuted and turned into demons. Then, the Archangel Michael, with humiliation and submission to God, gathered and joined the ranks of the angels, saying to them, “let us be careful not to fall from the light in the dark like Lucifer”. He thus preserved the glory of the other angelic orders.

The Assembly of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel and all the angelic battalions is celebrated on November 8th.
