In JudeoChristian and Islamic lore, Saint Michael the Archangel is the "great prince who stands up for the children of your people". His name means "who is like God?" His is interpreted as a symbol of humility before God and said to be the one who will lead the armies of God against the forces of Satan. According to Catholic tradition, he is also a psychopomp who escorts the dead to heaven after judging their worthiness and giving them a chance to redeem themselves.
