When I was growing up, I remember my parents telling me a story about how God created all of the angels including Lucifer/Satan. After Lucifer saw how beautiful and powerful he was, he became prideful and chose to rebel against God. St. Michael the Archangel and the angels who supported God then drove Lucifer out of heaven.
I was trying to find this story in the Bible today but couldn't. I thought that it would be somewhere in Genesis. Does anyone have a Scripture citation about where in the Bible I could find the above story? If not, where did it come from (tradition, Church Fathers, Magisterium, Papal documents)?
You're likely looking for, in part, Revelation 12:7-10:
*Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night.*
You may also be hearing parts of John Milton's Paradise Lost novel mixed in with those old stories.
