Angels of God

“Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (Jn 1: 51)

Our best friends, and a very special gift from God to protect us. One of the first prayers which my Mom taught me was to my Guardian Angel. We will celebrate their feast soon, too. Today we are thankful for the outstanding service of the Archangels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Their identity is hidden in their names: Michael means “Who is like God?”, Gabriel means “God is my strength” and Raphael—“It is God who heals.” Different missions, the same service to God. Each of them has in their identity God as a reference point, everything in their lives is connected with God.

“Bless the Lord, all you his angels, mighty in power, fulfilling his word, and heeding his voice.” (Entrance Antiphon)
