‏Commemoration of the Angel Raphael, the Archangel

Sep 8, 2021

‏Commemoration of the Angel Raphael, the Archangel

‏On this day, the church celebrates the commemoration of the honorable Angel Raphael,

‏the third of the Archangels, and the dedication of his church outside the city of Alexandria.

‏During the time of Pope Theophilus, the twenty-third Patriarch, a faithful woman came from Rome, with her children and had with her a picture of the honorable Archangel Raphael.

‏She had inherited much money from her husband.

‏She revealed to the Pope her desire to build many churches.

‏He showed her a large heap, which was in front of the patriarchate,

‏which she removed and built a church in its place.

‏Then she built another church in the name of the Angel Raphael,

‏which was consecrated on this day.

‏May The intercession of this honorable angel be with us. Amen.
