sanctaveritas:

September 29 - Feast of the Archangels
Heavenly King, 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 of 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. Amen.

The Archangel Gabriel, St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Picayune, Mississippi
"The Hebrew word for angel is mal’ak, meaning “messenger” or “ambassador.” In Greek the word is aggelos, which means “to bring tidings.” There are roughly 200 references to angels in Sacred Scripture. Like you and me, the angels are a creation of God, created in His image, unique one-of-a-kind creations, and given the gift of free will. As our purpose is to love and serve God here on earth, the purpose of the angels is to love and serve Him in Heaven. But unlike you and me, angels are pure spirit.
"Three archangels are mentioned in the Bible: Gabriel, Michael and Raphael. Gabriel was the messenger that announced the conception of John the Baptist to Zechariah (Luke 1:19) and at the Annunciation where he announced to Mary that she was to become the Mother of God (Luke 1:26-38). Michael did battle with evil (Jude 1:8-10 and Revelation 12:6-8). Raphael was the younger Tobit’s guide and mentor (Tobit 3:25)"

I was at St. Peter’s Chapel on the former U.S. Navy base of Mare Island (Vallejo, California) today for a wedding — and got to see this IN PERSON!  Tiffany Windows!!!!  Wow, the photo hardly does justice to the majesty of sunlight through these priceless treasures.
