There are three known Archangels in Christianity: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. Archangel Michael is the most powerful of all the angels and often we go to him as the angel of protection. He is considered a leader, a "general" if you will, within the angelic realm. There are many scriptural artworks which shows him as a warrior and carrying a sword. In the Book of Revelation during the war in heaven, St. Michael leads God’s armies against satan's forces. St. Michael the Archangel defeats Lucifer and tramples his forces.
In the Catholic faith, St. Michael has four roles. His first role is the leader of the Army of God and the leader of heaven's forces in their triumph over the powers of hell. In his second role, Michael is the angel of death, carrying the souls to heaven. In his third role, he weighs souls on his perfectly balanced scales, for this reason Michael is often depicted holding scales. In his fourth role, Saint Michael, the special patron of the Chosen People in the Old Testament, is also the guardian of the Church.
