Friday September 29
Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, archangels
Messengers of love
  • Revelation 12: 7-12
  • Psalm 138:1-5
  • John 1:47-51

Today is the feast of the Archangels; Michael, who resembles God, Gabriel, who is known as God’s strength and Raphael, who is the healing of God. The first reading describes how Michael fought the battle against the ancient serpent. It is revealed to us that, Satan and his angels were cast down to the earth. But the Blood of the Lamb has defeated the powers of the devil. The territorial distinguish mentioned here is not geographical but metaphorical. “Therefore rejoice you heavens and those who dwell in them” (Rev 12:12), what does this mean? Anyone who is in Christ has the heavenly experience and Satan cannot have any hold on them. We need to know if our internal disposition isn’t in Jesus and we need to be cautious.
The Gospel proclamation tells us to sit under the fig tree; where we hear the voice of God and the message of salvation. We are called to live the true message of salvation, which is love. Archangels work for spreading of God’s love. Let us become angels of God’s love on earth.

Prayer: Abba Father, help me to love you and my brothers and sisters. Amen.
