Feast of Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael...September 29

The memorials of Gabriel (March 24) and Raphael (October 24) were added to the Roman calendar in 1921. The 1970 revision of the calendar joined their feasts to Michaels (September 29).

I am only showing Archangel Raphael's holy card today.

"I am Raphael, one of the seven angels, who stand before the Lord."
Tobit 14:15

His mission in Scripture is to guide.
Read Old Testament Book of Tobit to learn of the
healing of blindness (cataracts) with fish gall.

(Protestants don't have the Book of Tobit.)

Friends - I'll be gone
for the next 11 days.
Please continue to leave comments. I will be unable to respond now but I'll catch up when we return.
Love to all.

One of the Warriors of Heaven, the mighty prince of the Heavenly Host, Raphael as revealed to an artist of great talent.
Spirits who surround the Throne of the Most High and do His Holy Bidding come to our aid!
And yet we poor sinners have a greater calling, to be Gods own children in a way these great spirits can never share, how Aweful and Wonderful are His Ways!

How interesting - the drawing of Saint Raphael belongs to the Muslim tradition, maybe of one illustrated exemplar of the Al-Quhran! Since they also venerate the archangels of God.
