Another question was asked, “Did Archangel Michael fall?” The answer is no, he did not fall. It was Lucifer who fell through pride and became Satan, not Michael. In fact, Michael is considered a saint and is the incense-bearer in front of the throne of God the Father. Michael is the leader of the heavenly hosts and the army of God. He is also the defender of the faith, the guardian of the Blessed Sacrament in tabernacles around the world, guardian and patron of the universal Church, the escort of souls to their particular judgment and the herald of the general judgment.
