The St. Archangel Michael parish in Salt Lake city solemnly celebrated their Slava - St. Michael, leader of the heavenly and bodiless Powers. In accordance with a Bible-typological image, Archangel Michael, whose name means "no one like God", stands up against the revolting Lucifer, and with that position reveals all the knowledge of God he had. "He does not describe God, does not explain Him, he stands and witnesses. That name is the expression of the Archangel's communication with the radiance of Divinity, in it is the measure by which this Archangel manifests this radiance," says Metropolitan Anthony Bloom at one place.
