The College has been named under the heavenly protection of St. Michael, the leader of the Archangels, as its patron. His name derived from the Hebrew word meaning “who is like God”, invites the beneficiaries of this institution to strive for godly perfection through the acquisition of knowledge. It was St. Michael who commanded God’s legions and achieved a decisive victory against the forces of evil that rebelled against God. He is believed to be the Archangel writing down the deeds of men in the Book of Life. He is also acclaimed as the helper of the chosen people. In Christian iconography St. Michael is depicted as a knight-warrior, wearing battle armor, and wielding a sword or spear, while standing triumphantly on a dragon or other representation of evil. Sometimes he is depicted holding the scales of justice or the Book of Life, both symbols of the last judgment. The 29th of September, popularly known as Michaelmas, is the day on which his heavenly intercession is sought in a
 special way.
