Daniel 7: 9-10, 13-14; Psalm 118; John 1: 47-51

Michael, Gabriel, Raphael

The word angel means messenger and the names that angels have indicate the ministry God has entrusted to them. Michael means ‘Who is like God’ and refers to his incessant fight against those who would put themselves above God. Gabriel means strength of God. He brings the might of God to men and women whom God calls to do great things for him. Raphael means healing of God. As his name implies he is the instrument of divine healing. The three are arch or chief angels. Don’t hesitate to invoke their help .
