Feast of the Archangels

September 29

Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael

The angels have five duties. The first is to continually sing hymns and praises to their Creator (Is. 6: 1-3). The second duty is to present the prayers of mortals to God and commend them with their petitions (Tb. 12:12). The third duty consists in their being sent as messengers to declare what God wants to declare (Gn. 18:2 Dn. 9:21; Lk. 1:11, 26 Lk. 2:9; Mt. 1:20, 2:13, 19; Mt. 28:2). The fourth duty is protecting men whether as individuals or groups (Ps. 91:11; Mt. 18:10; Dt. 10:5 ff; Rev. 2 and 3). The last duty is to serve as soldiers and armed leaders (Ps. 149:7; Gn. 19: 13; Ex. 12:12 ff; 2 Kgs 19:35; Mt. 13:49, 50). Let good men love their fellow citizens, the angels.

Today's Reflection:

One way I can show the angels my love is by imitating them in their duties. In what way(s) can I do this?
