The Feast of The Holy Archangels of God RSS
Today, on September 29th, The Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of The Archangels. Archangels are heavenly beings that possess intellect and will and were sent to us as messengers and protectors on behalf of God. The (3) Archangels are St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael. We learn about them from the bible, each of them had a special assignment from God for His people. According to the meaning of their name, they have a special mission and patronage.
Believers are encouraged to grow in friendship with them and seek their loving intercession. These Archangels, and all the holy angels, are servants of God, forever gazing upon the face of the Father in heaven (Matthew 18:10).
