The three Archangels for Catholics are Michael (Who is like God?), Raphael (God’s Doctor) and Gabriel (God’s Power)
These are the only 3 named Angels in sacred scripture and have incredibly important roles as Guardian Angels in the lives of Catholics.
Most people when they think of Archangels are mistaken in thinking that they are just “Fairy Tales” or “Make Believe” , this could be because of the “Hollywood appearance” of Archangels being depicted as warriors with wings almost like a Marvel comic book!
But make no mistake, Archangels ARE real and are played a vital role in the formation of our Faith and as protectors of us.
It is true they are warriors, they fight against Satan and forces of evil all while protecting us.
“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!”A prayer from Pope Francis on 29th September.
It is important to only maker prayer to the Archangels named here, only these three, some mention seven Archangels but the Catholic authority has made it clear we should only call upon these three Archangels for help.
