The Prince of the heavenly hosts and the angels


Michael is the Warrior-Prince of the heavenly hosts. As such, the angels “most willingly and gratefully recognize his supremacy, for after God, they owe to him their perseverance in grace and their eternal happiness . . . They are attentive to his slightest wish, seeing in his commands and regulations the Will of God” (St Michael the Archangel, 2006, p. 7).
