Daniel 7:9-10 13-14; or Apocalypse 12:7-12;
Psalm 138; John 1:47-51

Looking with love

In Catholic tradition St. Michael is revered as the protector of the Church. Gabriel communicates important messages. His greeting to Mary lives on, repeated daily in the, “Hail Mary!” It is Gabriel who brings the gift of vocation – the call – to our attention. Raphael is called the angel of prayer. These beings keep their attention fixed on God and us. They are totally committed to doing God’s will and to inspiring us to do the same. May we be open to their guidance so that our attention may be fixed on God and on loving our neighbour.
