During our travels throughout Europe, we have captured several depictions of Saint Michael the Archangel.  Hope you enjoy them.  We will continue to post new images as we continue our travels.

This is my favorite Saint, well he really isn't a Saint, but a pretty cool leader of Angels. He is frequently portrayed as a young, meek, almost feminine person controlling the devil, dragon or snake. It is one thing to get beat by a tough guy, but to get beat by him must be humiliating.  

While we refer to Saint Michael as a saint, he really isn't a saint, he is an angel.  As the Archangel, he is the leader of all angels and leader of the Army of God. The title "Archangel" translates as, he is above all the others in rank.  [Catholic.org]  

St. Michael has 4 main responsibilities:  combat Satan; escort the faithful to heaven at their hour of death; be a champion of all Christians, and the Church itself; and to call men from life on Earth to their heavenly judgment.  [Catholic.org]
