St. Gabriel the Archangel

St. Gabriel the Archangel

Feast Day: September 29
Patron of: Those who work in Communications, those who work in broadcast media, and those working in postal services

The name “Gabriel” is ancient and steeped in tradition, literally meaning “God’s my hero”. St. Gabriel is known as God’s loyal messenger, bringing crucial communications from God to men throughout salvation history – for instance, he brought news of the births of John the Baptist and Jesus. Since he’s the consummate bearer of news, St. Gabriel is often shown with a horn in Western art. The angel Gabriel also figures prominently in Islam as a messenger from Paradise.

St. Gabriel can bring a message of divine love and confidence to you or a loved one. Call on him for support and calm in the turmoil of the communications industry, or ask him to bring God’s grace to a friend in need.
