The angels are messengers between God and us.

Saturday, 10/1/17

Today the Church honors the archangels mentioned in the Bible. We see Raphael in the Book of Tobit, Gabriel came to Mary in Luke's Gospel; and Michael appears in Revelations and elsewhere. Still, they are at their best when we recognize what they had in common.

The word angel actually means a messenger, and we see them together  in Jacob's dream at Bethel, taking our prayers up to God, and bringing his help down to us.
