Ever alert and ready in divine service. Icons depicting the Archangel Michael, he is often portrayed as a powerful and majestic figure, ready to defend and protect against evil forces. The imagery of him holding an angelic staff and a sphere with the Greek letter "Chi" (?), representing Christ, symbolizes his role as the leader of the heavenly army and the defender of faith. The ceremonial robes worn by Saint Michael in these icons, inspired by Byzantine court attire, reflect the historical and artistic influences of the Byzantine Empire on Catholic religious art.
This fusion of cultural and religious elements serves to convey the archangel's significance and divine authority within Christian tradition.
