St. Michael the Archangel is honored as the angel who fought Satan in the battle described in the book of Revelation (20:1-3). Because of this, he has been named the patron saint of those in the military and police force. St. Michael is one of the best loved of all saints in the Catholic tradition because of his strength and dedication to God. Many people make a daily practice of praying the “Saint Michael Prayer,” which asks St. Michael to be a defender and protector. St. Michael is a practical saint for all people because of his great example of tenacity to the will of God, as well as his love for good triumphing over evil.
