The archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel whom the Church celebrates today are special agents of God’s care for his people. The Church looks on each of them as patrons of certain aspects of our world.
Angels appear frequently in Scripture, but only Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael are named. Each of these archangels performs a different mission in Scripture: Michael protects; Gabriel announces; Raphael guides.
