Archangel Michael (Athos)
The Archangel Michael, whose name means “Who is as God?”, is considered their chief and leader among the Angelic Hosts.
When Lucifer, a most beautiful archangel, fell in love with his distorted image of himself in pride, he left reality. He was challenged by St. Michael, who spoke the meaning of his name, “Who is as God?”.
Lucifer had become Satan, the Adversary, who fell like lightning from Heaven into the Hell of darkness and self-love trying to get other sentient beings to love him more than God.
Our holy Archangel Michael is a great intercessor and protector for all.
This icon was produced in a small monastery of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the beautiful southwest of Wisconsin USA. It is believe to be the largest selection of historical icons produced and distributed anywhere in the world.
