The question was asked, “Where were Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit when Michael was fighting Lucifer” at the beginning? The short answer is that both Christ and the Spirit were in the bosom, the Divine Heart, of God the Father as They had always been.
The question was asked, “Will Michael defeat Satan?” The answer is a resounding “yes.” Scripture tells us: “Then I saw an angel come down from heaven with the key of the Abyss in his hand and an enormous chain. He overpowered the dragon, that primeval serpent which is the devil and Satan, and chained him up for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and shut the entrance and sealed it over him, to make sure he would not deceive the nations again until the thousand years had passed” (Rv 20:1-3).
The question was asked, “Is the Holy Spirit Michael?” The answer is in the negative. The Holy Spirit is God by nature, the love between God the Father and God the Son, Jesus Christ, so He is the third Person of the Holy Trinity – an uncreated Person. The Archangel Michael is a created being, a lowly angel who became the prince of the heavenly hosts because of his utmost fidelity to God.
The question was asked, “Did Archangel Michael question God’s Will?” The brief answer is in the negative. Lucifer (now Satan) questioned and rebelled against the Father’s Will, not Michael.
The question was asked, “Did Archangel Michael visit Jesus in Gethsemane?” The short answer is ‘yes.’ Michael was the angel sent by God the Father to console Christ after His massive heart attack and in the absence of His Mother, Mary.
The question was asked, “Was Saint Michael a devil?” The answer is a resounding ‘no!’ Michael is the archangel who defeated Lucifer and his angels when these rebelled against God. Lucifer was the seraphim who became a devil – the Devil – by his pride, envy and refusal not to serve God.
The question was asked, “Is Lucifer stronger than Michael the archangel?” The answer is in the negative. Lucifer being Satan, the Devil, he only has the strength and capacity to do harm insofar as God allows him to – no more, no less. Archangel Michael has the full strength and support of the Holy Trinity and the Virgin Mary in all his activities, because he lives fully in the Will of God.
The question was asked, “Is the archangel Michael greater than the archangel Lucifer?” The response is multiple in nature. Lucifer is Satan. He is not an archangel but a demon – the Devil. Neither was he ever an archangel before he decided that he wanted to be like God and above God. Michael is the lowly archangel who defended God with all his strength and defeated Lucifer in the first battle to ever happen. Michael is also the archangel who will defeat Satan again in the spiritual battle of our times.
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.
Given the mass murder which occurred in Newton, Connecticut, ask the Archangel Michael for his protection and care. He will not hesitate to help out because he is the great defender of our times. It is written in Scripture that Michael is the angel who will chain the Evil One, so the era of peace can ensue on earth. Do not think twice, therefore, to ask Michael for his guardianship in your daily life. He is the warrior and it is both his pleasure and specific ministry to take on Satan in warfare. Ask Michael to defend you and he will come instantly by your side.
“Quis ut Deus? Serviam! Who is like God? I will serve!” This is the victorious cry first uttered by Archangel Michael, after defending God the Father against Lucifer and the principalities and powers who opposed Him before the beginning of time (Rv 12:7-9). It is this battle-cry which needs to be our wholehearted and immediate response to the Most High, when He asks us whether
