Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael
John 1:47-51

Today we celebrate the feast of three great archangels: Michael, “who is like God”; Gabriel, “the strength of God” and Raphael, “God’s remedy.” The angels always represented God – they were His messengers. I see all of us in that role in assisting others. We often describe someone as an angel – and an angel of mercy, always reflecting goodness and love.

Lord Jesus, may I always be a messenger of your love, mercy and goodness.
