The Feast of the Archangels

Today is the wonderful Feast Day of those three great and mighty Archangels of God,
Michael, which means Who is like God, Gabriel, Strength of God, and Raphael, Healing or Medicine of God.
Let us salute and thank them for all they do, and let us ask these great and noble beings for their continued help and assistance.

Prayer to St. Michael

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do Thou, Oh Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen. 

Prayer to St. Raphael
Blessed Saint Raphael, Archangel, we beseech thee to help us in all our needs and trials of this life, as thou, through the power of God, didst restore sight and give guidance to young Tobit. We humbly seek thine aid and intercession, that our souls may be healed, our bodies protected from all ills,and that through Divine Grace we may be made fit to dwell in the eternal Glory of God in heaven. Amen.

 

Prayer to St. Gabriel
Oh Blessed Archangel Gabriel, we beseech thee, do thou intercede for us at the throne of divine Mercy in our present necessities, that as thou didst announce to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation, so through thy prayers and patronage in heaven we may obtain the benefits of the same, and sing the praise of God forever in the land of the living. Amen.
