The question was asked, “Did the Archangel Michael get anything for his loyalty to God?” The brief answer is a resounding yes! Saint Michael was appointed head of the heavenly hosts – a post previously held by Lucifer – even though the former was a lowly archangel, in comparison to the latter who had been a seraphim. Michael earned eternity in heaven with the Most Holy Trinity, the privilege of guarding the universal Church and the People of God, among other things; and the privilege of chaining Satan forever.
