I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with all my heart,
for you have heard the words of my mouth;
in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple
and give thanks to your name. (Ps 138:1-2ab)
Today marks the feast of the Archangels: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. The archangels were the special messengers of God and brought His might, His message, and His healing.
We live in a troubled world. It is a world that desperately needs to hear the message of God’s love.
I am convinced that God continually sends His angels among us, giving us His word and offering us His help. I am just as convinced that the world has turned a deaf ear and blind eye to the realities of God’s love, including His angels.
The sooner we realize that we are not going to be able to do everything on our own, the sooner we will accept the divine assistance that is offered to us by our God.
The world cannot afford to continue to ignore God.
FAITH ACTION: In prayer, ask God to have His angels watch over you this day.
