The angels

Tomorrow Sept. 29 is the feast of the angels--Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.
Gabriel is the angel who named Jesus. He told Mary at the annunciation that she should name her son "Jesus." And Luke notes that when Jesus was circumcised, he received "the name the angel gave him before he was born." So Gabriel would be a good angel to pray to if you're looking for some inspiration on naming a baby.

I'm still collecting stories about angels for the book I'm working on, so if you have any true stories of angelic intervention or answers to prayer, please let me know!
Thanks and God bless you!
