  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Gabriel, the Archangel (Gueranger)

    03/23/2018 9:09:05 PM PDT · by CMRosary · 2 replies
    White Greater Double SO FAR IN THE CHURCH’S CALENDAR, we have not met with any feast in honor of the holy angels. Amidst the ineffable joys of Christmas night, we mingled our timid but glad voices with the hymns of these heavenly spirits, who sang around the crib of our Emmanuel. The very recollection brings joy to our hearts, saddened as they now are by penitential feelings and by the near approach of the mournful anniversary of our Jesus’ death. Let us, for a moment, interrupt our sadness, and keep the feast of the Archangel Gabriel. Later on, we...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Raphael, Archangel (Gueranger)

    White Double THE approach of the great solemnity, which will soon be shedding upon us all the splendors of heaven, seems to inspire the Church with a profound recollection. Except for the homage she must needs pay, on their own date, to the glorious Apostles Simon and Jude, only a few Feasts of simple rite break the silence of these last days of October. Our souls must be in confirmity with the dispositions of our common Mother. It will not, however, be out of keeping to give a thought to the great Archangel, honored today by many particular churches....

    White Double of the First Class THE glorious Archangel appears today at the head of the heavenly army: There was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels. In the sixth century, the dedication of the churches of St. Michael on Monte Gargano and in the Roman Circus increased the celebrity of this day, which had however been long before consecrated by Rome to the memory of all the heavenly Virtues. The east commemorates on the sixth of September an apparition of the victorious Prince at Chone...

    A Woman Wrapped in Silence – A Meditation for the Feast of the Annunciation By: Msgr. Charles PopeIn preparation for today’s Feast of the Annunciation I picked up Jesus of Nazareth, Vol. 3 (The Infancy Narratives)  by Pope Emeritus Benedict. I was very moved by a very brief reflection that he made on Mary as the Angel Gabriel left her. His remarks consider her faith in a very touching manner. I must say that I have always been moved, and intrigued, by the faith of the Blessed Mother, for she is “a woman wrapped in silence,” a phrase that forms the...

    JERUSALEM An ancient limestone tablet covered with a mysterious Hebrew text that features the archangel Gabriel is at the center of a new exhibit in Jerusalem, even as scholars continue to argue about what it means. The so-called Gabriel Stone, a meter (three-foot)-tall tablet said to have been found 13 years ago on the banks of the Dead Sea, features 87 lines of an unknown prophetic text dated as early as the first century BC, at the time of the Second Jewish Temple.

    Time to Bring Back St. Michaels Prayer by Judy Keane on December 13, 2012 In his 2008 Inaugural Address, President Obama praised the tremendous sacrifices of our Founding Fathers and our hard won freedoms saying, Our Founding Fathers faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, they drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. However, in moving forward aggressively with the HHS Mandate, it has become clear we are witnessing a U.S. President eroding those very freedoms he initially spoke so highly...

    Who Is Like Unto God?Tomorrow we celebrate the Feast of the holy Archangels, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Each year, this feast gives us a golden opportunity to renew our friendship with the angels who are given for our spiritual benefit and are eager to assist us in our battle against the principalities and powers of the world of darkness. We need only to ask their assistance and their guidance on our way to heaven. Let us take a moment to reflect on the glorious prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, the most potent of all Gods helpers....

    Spirit and Life ^ | 9/29/2006 | Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer
    The Three Flames of Divine LoveEvery year on the 29th of September the Church commemorates the three angels whose names have been revealed to us in Scripture for our consolation: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. There is a fourth angel whose name is also revealed, Lucifer, but for a different reason: to warn us clearly about all his works and empty promises. When God unmasks the identity of angelic beings in the public revelation of the Church it is because He wants us to know something about them that will assist us on the road to Heavenor give us sufficient warning....

    Archangel sculpture rises from Lichfield nave Maev Kennedy Monday February 20, 2006 Simply red ... the carving of the Archangel Gabriel recently discovered under the nave of Lichfield Cathedral. Photograph: Shelley Stratford The Archangel Gabriel, his wings still fiery with colour applied over 1200 years ago, has emerged from beneath the nave of Lichfield Cathedral. The Anglo-Saxon carved figure was found when builders, watched over by archaeologists, took up part of the floor of the nave to build a new rising platform for concerts and recitals. "None of us imagined that the project would provide a priceless gem, with the...

    St. Michael Center ^ | September 29, 2003
    A long tradition identifies St. Michael the Archangel, as the leader who remained faithful to God, and cast Lucifer at Gods command. His powerful aid has always been invoked by the Church in time of emergency. The Popes have constantly called on St. Michael as the special protector of the Church whenever great evils threatened Gods people. For this reason, St. Michael is especially honored at Rome, on Monte Gargano, near Foggia, in Italy, and in France on Mont St. Michel in Normandy. In times of unusual danger, when the malice of the devil seems triumphant, St. Michael will...

    <p>Mark Judelson has been writing since his high school days in New Haven, when he once skipped classes for two weeks and justified it to his parents by announcing he was writing a book.</p> <p>His parents' first reaction was uncontrolled laughter, he says. He was a white student at a largely black inner-city school at the end of the 1960s. His hometown was experiencing race riots, and Black Panther Bobby Seale was on trial there. Judelson had a story to tell, and after two years of work and revision, his book about his experiences was published. Although he went on to study forestry, he's been putting words on paper ever since. After spending time in Africa, where storytelling is the medium of the masses, he's pursued that art form while working as executive director of the Arts Council of Rockland.</p>
