Feast Day 29 September: Calonge, Campanet, Son Carrió,
An Old Testament figure who is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation,
he appears in the Jewish Book of Enoch, and passed into Christian mythology,
although not into its orthodoxy. Although his name is only mentioned four times in
the Scriptures, some Christian theologians claim and identify his appearance in
the Bible even when nameless. As the cherub at the gates of paradise in Genesis
Considered as an archangel, prince of all angels, prince even of the seraphim by
some, and the commander of God’s Army, he is normally depicted as a warrior,
blazing across the sky, with his sword unsheathed, fighting the Devil. In the
Islamic faith, he is also an archangel, second only to Gabriel, but as the bringer
of blessings. Roman Catholics bestow sainthood upon him and address him as Saint
Michael. The title “saint” means “holy”; it does not signify a human soul in heaven.
Patron Saint of paratroopers –unsurprisingly– and warriors, police and soldiers.
