This feastday celebrates the three Archangels who acted as messengers between God and Man.

Saint Michael the Archangel has been described in the Scriptures as "one of the chief princes", and as leader of the forces of Heaven against the powers of hell.

It was Saint Michael who appeared to the children at Garabandal to prepare them for the visit of Our Lady.

Raphael appears in the Deuterocanonical Book of Tobit. He first appears as a human being as the travelling companion of the younger Tobias. Later on he heals the blindness of the elder Tobit and makes himself known as "the angel Raphael, one of the seven who stand before the Lord" (Tobit 12:15)
