"The archangel Uriel. She wields the torch of God that carries His flames. She blows the flames to lighten the dark path of the confused and feared."

Uriel is known as the Archangel of Wisdom. She shines the light of God’s truth into the darkness of confusion. Uriel is also listed as one of the four main archangels, the other three being Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.

People sometimes ask for Uriel’s help to: seek God’s will before making decisions, come up with fresh creative ideas, learn new information, solve problems, resolve conflicts, let go of destructive emotions such as anxiety and anger that can prevent them from discerning wisdom, and recognize dangerous situations so they can try to avoid them.

Although she is never mentioned by name in any of the widely accepted holy scriptures, her name also means "Flame of God" for her depiction of holding a flaming sword, although that depiction is usually attriubted to Michael, as her main weapon is a bow and arrow.

She is said to carry the stars in the sky, and on the final day of judgement, she will oversee the resurrection and retribution of human souls. According to the Apocrypha, Uriel was the guardian to the gates of the Garden of Eden. Uriel, unlike most of her brethren, deeply cares for her fallen brother Lucifer. While the other archangels, barring Gabriel, have seen that Lucifer is beyond saving, Uriel still believes that there is still a glimmer of good within him and that he is simply consumed by rage and hatred, and that he must be shown the love and acceptance he once adored and cherished by his family. Uriel would even go so far as to provide nourishment for the fallen angel during his imprisonment. Lucifer himself displayed numerous times, greater affection towards Uriel than others.
