Feast of the Archangels

 I read some interesting things about the Archangels around us; here are some of the ideas from Give Us This Day.

Angels in the Bible are seldom named. Their function is more important than their identity. Only three Angels have names and we honor them today and all our Guardian Angels on October 2. Michael is the Archangel who leads the faithful angels to victory over Satan in Revelation; he is also mentioned in the Book of Daniel and in the Letter of Jude.

Gabriel is mentioned four times in Scripture: the Book of Daniel, and then in Luke to announce the forthcoming births of John the Baptist and Jesus.

Raphael in named only in the Book of Tobit, where he is really the major character.

Angels are sent to help us and at this time we need them more than ever. We seem to have two of our staff now with the virus so the Health Department has us quarantined in our rooms for 28 days beginning yesterday. Fortunately, I have books to read and I do not mind being in my room but 28 days seems too much so I am thinking two weeks at a time.
