Knowing the Archangels

I am so very thankful to my mother because she gave me a small booklet that contains the novena of the Archangels. When I was in college, I usually used this booklet especially in praying to the archangels. Whenever I pray the Holy Rosary, I also used this booklet as a guide. Because of my mother, I had known seven archangels, which I do believe, that because of their guidance to me and my beloved ones with the mercy of our dear Lord, we are blessed & safe everyday. I do believe that angels protect us from any harm and trouble. With them our faith is directed to our Lord. Here are some of the important points that I know about archangels, and everybody should know about this for spiritual health purposes.

  • Saint Michael is the prince of the heavenly hosts, the Commander-in-Chief of all the hierarchies and is usually known as the Angel who defeated Lucifer.
  • Saint Gabriel is the special messenger of God, the bearer of God's secret messages to His chosen ones. He is also the angel who announced to the Blessed Virgin Mary of God's plan to her and to his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Saint Raphael is the healer and guide for the Christian Pilgrim. He is assigned by God to accompany us along the way of our pilgrimage in search of the treasures of real happiness which God has in store for all His children.
  • Saint Uriel, the archangel of divine justice. He has with him his weighing scale that reminds us of justice that weighs according to its true worth whatever good we do and whatever wrong doings we commit in relation to God, to our neighbors and to ourselves.
  • Saint Sealtiel, the archangel of worship and contemplation. His angelic purity transforms the love and worship which we mortals give to God.
  • Saint Jhudiel, the bearer of God's Merciful Love. God's mercy is infinite and through Saint Jhudiel, God's mercy is reached in every one of us, every moment of our life and without it, we would die. With it, God provides us the graces we need for our souls and the sustenance we need for our bodies.
  • And last but not the least Saint Barachiel, the guardian and provider of the children of God. He is assigned by God to keep watch of His children, taking care of them always in each of our life.
  • It is very important to know them, especially where you are in need most, so that your prayer will be sent to  God. Remember that through the archangels, our lives is greatly directed to God in His kingdom. Lord Jesus Christ is the way, and they are the guide on our way to reach our Lord. With our prayers, it makes our hearts, bodies & soul one flesh.
