Santi Michele, Gabriele e Raffaele, Gli Arcangeli – Dipinto di Dino Carbetta
“Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, The Archangels – Painting by Dino Carbetta” …
Angels, often referred to as messengers from God, play a significant role in Scripture, with only three being named: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. Michael, whose name means "Who is like God?," is a prominent figure in the Bible. He appears in Daniel's vision as "the great prince," defending Israel against its adversaries. In Revelation, Michael leads God's heavenly armies to ultimate victory over the forces of evil. The devotion to Michael is one of the oldest angelic devotions, originating in the fourth century. The Western Church began honoring Michael and all the angels with a feast in the fifth century, showcasing the enduring appeal of this angelic figure. Gabriel also makes appearances in Daniel's visions, where he announces Michael's role in God's divine plan. However, Gabriel is perhaps best known for his encounter with a young Jewish girl named Mary. It was through Gabriel's message that Mary willingly agreed to bear the Messiah, making him a central figure in the story of the Nativity. Raphael’s role in the Bible appears exclusively in the Old Testament story of Tobit. Raphael guides Tobit's son, Tobiah, through a series of incredible adventures that ultimately result in a threefold happy conclusion: Tobiah's marriage to Sarah, the miraculous healing of Tobit's blindness, and the restoration of the family's fortune. Raphael's role as a guide and healer showcases the diverse attributes of angels. The memorials of Gabriel and Raphael were added to the Roman calendar in 1921, a recognition of their importance in Christian tradition. These angels, Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, hold a special place in the hearts of believers and serve as messengers and protectors, exemplifying the profound spiritual connection between heaven and Earth. Their stories continue to inspire and uplift those who seek divine guidance and protection in their lives.
