GOSPEL Rv 12:7-12ab

War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night. They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them."


War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.

Today is the feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, Archangels.

St Michael was chosen to subdue the pride of Lucifer and of all the rebel angels by expelling them from heaven.

St Gabriel brought the message to Our Lady from God the Father that she was chosen to be the Mother of God.

We read in the book of Tobit that St Raphael was disguised as a man who traveled with Tobiah. St Raphael was sent by the Lord to heal Tobiah's blindness and deliver Sarah, Tobiah's future wife, from the devil.

Let us ask these three holy archangels for their intercession.
