Sebastian an early martyr was shot full of arrows and left to died but his physical fitness and ability help him initial survive the attack, therefore he is considered patron saint of athletes. I would like to know the answer to this also. As to Michael, my speculation is that he is a saint because he is in heaven.
The Saints are deemed patrons of a particular need or thing because of what they did in their lives. For ex: St. Monica prayed for years for the conversion of her son, Augustine, who is also a saint, but in his youth was pretty wild. So she is the patroness of mothers who are praying for their wayward children. Lucy had her eyes gouged out…for refusing to deny Christ, So she is the patroness of eye ailments.
Our Patron Saints
Cecilia heard angels singing as she was martyred, so she is the patroness of music and musicians. John is the patron of Bookbinders and authors, because of his beautiful Gospel writing.

And so on and so forth. All of us who end up in heaven will become saints. Now whether or not we end up with a feast day observed by all or our mugs on holy cards…you never know! People do not turn into angels when they die. Angels are a distinct species…separate from humans. They are immortal, non-corporal beings with free will. Was Satan an arch angel before he rebelled against God? That was just a bunch of stuff, that he was trying to get his wings by being assigned to watch over George Bailey?
Satan Lucifer was a high ranking angel. Similar to Michael. He did not want to serve Jesus. He refused. A Wonderful Life is a story, a really cute story with a lovely ending, but as a lesson in the theology of angels? I always say that I have the hardest working angel in show business…people crack up.
Seriously though, my guardian angel has gotten me out of a lot of scrapes, and helped me immensely. God bless you! Saint Michael the Archangel isn't a saint, but rather he is an angel, and the leader of all angels and of the army of God. This is what the title "Archangel" means, that he is above all the others in rank. Michael has four main responsibilities or offices, as we Gabriel is an angel who serves as a messenger for God to certain people. He is one of the three archangels. Gabriel is mentioned in both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible.
First, in the Old Testament, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his Christians who breathed a sigh of relief when Constantine proclaimed Christianity the state religion, believing this would end the bloodshed and martyrdom. But it was all too short a time until they were facing persecution once more -- from others who claimed to be Eusebius, born just a few years after Fabian's death, tells us how Fabian came to Rome after Pope Anteros died in A layperson, and not a very important one, he may have come for the same reason many still come to Rome today during a papal election: concern for the Francis of Assisi is widely known for his life of poverty and love of creation.
But there's a lesser known side to the friar as well a side that showed a deep reverence for the Eucharist and attentive care to the sacred vessels at Mass.

Scholars have suggested that Verulanium, is now known as St. Albans in Hertfordshire. This was a part of Britain which resisted Roman rule. Alban, a pagan, is said to have sheltered a priest who was fleeing persecution. Alban took the priest's cloak and allowed him to escape. The priest spoke to Alban about his faith and this changed him forever. Roman soldiers arrested Alban, who was later beheaded.
When people saw his faith many became Christians as well. The traditional site of Alban's death, Holmhurst Hill, became the site of St. During a Danish invasion, Alban's relics are said to have been transported to Ely. What remained of Alban's relics were scattered in the time of the Dissolution. Saint Alban is the patron saint of converts, refugees and torture victims. His feast day is on June 22nd. In , Pietro Bernardone returned from a trip to France to find out his wife had given birth to a son. Far from being excited or apologetic because he'd been gone, Pietro was furious because she'd had his new son baptized Giovanni after John the Baptist.
The last thing Pietro wanted in his son was a man of God -- he wanted a man of business, a cloth merchant like he was, and he especially wanted a son who would reflect his infatuation with France. So he renamed his son Francesco -- which is the equivalent of calling him Frenchman. Francis fulfilled every hope of Pietro's -- even falling in love with France.
Francis was also good at business. Francis wanted more than wealth, but not holiness Francis wanted to be a nobleman, a knight. Battle was the best place to win the glory and prestige he longed for. He got his first chance when Assisi declared war on their longtime enemy, the nearby town of Perugia. But Francis never got farther than one day's ride from Assisi.
There he had a dream in which God told him he had it all wrong and told him to return home.
