"We learned that when Uriel was seen upon the altar in the likeness of a mighty lion that crouches on its prey, the priests and Yisrael saw and were glad, for they knew that their sacrifice was welcome to the Holy King. Another fire, Holy and supernal, came down, against the lower fire. The man would then go trembling before his Master and complete repent." - The Zohar 28 Tzav 19
