Did Michael fight Satan?

By | December 9, 2013

The question was asked, “Did Archangel Michael fight Satan?” The response is, “And how! And he still is, in every way, especially in these our times.” Michael is the angel-warrior par excellence. No one from among the angelic hosts excels in fighting Satan the way Michael does. He is the Generalissimo, the leader of the army of God, and the guardian of Paradise. He is also the guardian of the Blessed Sacrament and the universal Church.

Beloved of God, Michael was literally saved by the Father from being dragged down by Satan during the initial battle between the angels prior to the beginning of time. Michael will, therefore, do anything for God. Michael was also the ministering angel to Jesus Christ in the garden of Gethsemane.
