In battling Satan, Michael is fierce – more fierce than any other angel. In fact, he could possibly be called the Prince of fierceness in this regard for, when Michael fights, he does so with no holds barred. He plunges himself into battle with a thoroughness, swiftness, and accuracy of aim that are stunning. He defends his assigned charges valiantly and mightily, and defends the Triune God with even more might and valiance – a might and valiance that were granted to Him by the Most High Himself. That is, therefore, who Michael is; the Archangel Prince of the universal Church.
