Michael and his angels

September 29, 2015 6:00 am

“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.” (RV 12: 7-8)

One of the greatest gifts we have received from God is the protection of the Angels. Today we celebrate the feast of some of them, the most prestigious angels, called by their extraordinary missions Archangels: Michael—“Who is like God,” Gabriel—“Strength of God,” and Rafael—“God heals.” Three different missions and three different times but the same love for God and the same will to serve Him. Even their names, like their missions, are focused on God.

“Bless the LORD, all you angels, you ministers, who do his will.” (Gospel Acclamation)
