About Today Readings

Ss Michael, Gabriel & Raphael

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord – Psalm 137(138):1-5. John 1:47-51.

Bless the Lord, all you his angels

Alleluia, alleluia!
Bless the Lord, all you his angels,
his ministers who do his will.
Alleluia!

The readings today have such amazing imagery – God’s archangels defeating Satan’s dragons and serpents – defending the Kingdom of God. A little girl I knew went to heaven last year and she was able to name 73 angels who gave her incredible comfort as she lived the last days of her life. This in turn, gave her parents, family, friends and community comfort. Who are our angels, with us on Earth, with those in heaven? How are we angels, ministers of God’s will in our community? The images of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael protecting God’s love by defeating hate – we need many angels like this in our place today, we can be those Angels bringing about the Kingdom of God.
