Feast of the Archangels


St Michael, St Gabriel, St Raphael

September 29

 The feast of the Archangels reminds us that we are on a journey where it is easy to be lost, easy to be hurt. God in his wisdom provides special help to be safe, to arrive to the Harbor where He is waiting for us. Let us not reject these creatures that our Lord has given us. They are waiting and ready to help us. There is a fight that is too difficult. Let us ask for their protection, reminding these words that God told the Hebrews in the desert. “”See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.” Exodus 23.20

Heavenly Father, you have given us archangels to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth.
Saint Michael is our protector, I ask him to come to my aid, fight for all my loved ones, and protect us from danger.
Saint Gabriel is a messenger for the Good News, I ask him to help me clearly, hear your voice and to teach me the truth.
Saint Raphael is the healing angel, I ask him to take my need for healing and that of everyone I know, lift it up to your throne of grace and deliver back to us the gift of recovery.
Help us O Lord to realize more fully the reality of the archangels and their desire to serve us. Holy Angels pray for us.
