Michael is the fourth of the four leading Archangels and carries the flaming sword. He is the defeater of Satan and weighs the souls on the Day of Judgement. Fire is his element, his colour is red. According to the Catholic view, he stands in the East before the Throne of God. The solar sphere is Michael's spiritual home and to promote the Earth's development in the service of the Christ in such a way that the human I can unfold as richly as possible is his main task.
