St. Uriel is the archangel of salvation. In the Council of Rome of 745, Pope St. Zachary, struck Uriel's name from the list of those eligible for veneration. Saint Uriel appears in numerous apocryphal texts as an angel of repentance, death, and salvation. In modern times many attribute him with a flaming sword guarding the Garden of Eden. His feast is celebrated on the feast of the Archangels, September 29.
