Michael the Archangel is mentioned in the Bible in the books of Daniel, Jude, and Revelation[1][2]. He is described as a warrior angel who engages in spiritual combat[2], and is referred to as an archangel, meaning "angel of the highest rank"[1][3]. He is said to be a strong angelic prince who protects Israel and submissively serves God by doing battle against evil forces[2]. Michael is also identified as “the great prince who protects your people” (Daniel 12:1)[2], and he will play a significant part in end-time events[1].

In addition, Michael only says four words in the Bible (Jude 9)[3], and Catholics often refer to him as "Holy Michael, the Archangel" or "Saint Michael"[4][5]. Several religious orders have been founded dedicated to Saint Michael under the title of the Community of St Michael and All Angels[5], and the Congregation of Saint Michael the Archangel (CSMA)[5].
