On September 29 we celebrate the Feasts of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
Michael means "likeness of God." Compassion, forgiveness and love are his special attributes.
Gabriel means "strength of God." He gifts us with the help and support needed to move toward spiritual wholeness.
Raphael means "healer of God." Physical, emotional and spiritual healing are the aspects of God’s presence brought to us by Raphael.
