Feast of the Archangels


Today is the feast day of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Michael (Daniel 10:13), which means "Who is Like God?";Gabriel (Daniel 8:16), which means "Power of God"; and Raphael (Tobit 7:8), which means "God has healed."

My eldest son was named in honor of St. Raphael, while my youngest was named in honor of St Uriel (one of the 7 archangels)
