Thought for the Day – 29 September – The Feast of Sts Michael, Gabriel and Raphael

“Michael is the one who fights against the devil, he protects us against the serpent that seduces us, that makes us fall and then accuses us before God, claiming us as his own.   Michael, was asked by the Lord to fight the devil” and he helps us resist temptation on our earthly journey toward heaven.

Gabriel is the one who “brings the good news”, he’s the one who announced to Zachariah the forthcoming birth of John the Baptist and to Mary and Joseph, the birth of Jesus.  Gabriel too accompanies us and helps us on our journey when we ‘forget’ the Gospel.   He reminds us that “Jesus came to save us.”

Raphael, meanwhile, “walks with us taking care of us on our journey and helping us not take the wrong steps.”

These are our companions, at our service and at God’s service.

Let us Pray:

“Michael:   Help us in our battle – each of us has a battle to fight in our lives;
Gabriel:   Bring us news, bring us the good news of salvation;
Raphael:   Take us by the hand and lead us forward without taking the wrong turns.
Always walking forward, but with your help!
Amen”

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
