Description

Handmade carved icon with silver with Archangel Michael

Major General Michael is portrayed with all his splendor as a Commander of the Insolent Forces. The movement of the Archangel is emphasized by his great wings. His face has youthful features and has been painted with dense touches following the Byzantine tradition. The faithful and devoted to God Archangel Michael is the defender of the poor and weak people. He protects them from the evil and the hateful devil’s hatred.

In countless cases, this protection has been manifested by miraculous events. Primarily, however, as our Church teaches, he protects the souls of the people who are eager to the Lord, from the attacks of the demons and their efforts to prevent souls in their course to God. Archangel Michael is the one who 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.
