Feast Day of the ArchangelsSt. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael
St. Michael is the head of the heavenly army, ready to defend us when we ask. St. Gabriel is God’s special messenger, bringing news of the Annumciation to the Blessed Mother. St. Raphael is invoked for both healing and safety in travel, since, in the book of Tobit, Raphael accompanied Tobias on his journey to find his wife and obtain healing for both his wife and his father.
We praise You, Almighty Father, for the protection and care of the Archangels.
