Memorial, Sts. Michael, Gabriel & Raphael, archangels
Saturday 25th Week in Ordinary Time - Year I

DANIEL 7:9-10, 13-14
As I watched: Thrones were set up and the Ancient One took his throne.
His clothing was bright as snow, and the hair on his head as white as
wool; His throne was flames of fire, with wheels of burning fire. A
surging stream of fire flowed out from where he sat; Thousands upon
thousands were ministering to him, and myriads upon myriads attended
him. The court was convened, and the books were opened. As the visions
during the night continued, I saw One like a son of man coming, on the
clouds of heaven; When he reached the Ancient One and was presented
before him, He received dominion, glory, and kingship; nations and
peoples of every language serve him. His dominion is an everlasting
dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be

JOHN 1:47-51
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Here is a true
child of Israel. There is no duplicity in him." Nathanael said to him,
"How do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip
called you, I saw you under the fig tree." Nathanael answered him,
"Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel." Jesus
answered and said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I
saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this."
And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven
opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of

Nathanael was amazed at how Jesus had read his innermost thoughts.
When Nathanael asked how Jesus knew him, Jesus told him that he had
seen him under the fig tree. According to Jewish tradition, "to sit
under the fig tree" was another way of expressing "to meditate on the
scriptures." Jesus must have seen in Nathanael's heart, when he was
deep in meditation, the peace of soul of one who lives in God's love.
And so we can ask ourselves: How does Jesus see the way of life I am
leading? Does He see in me someone "in whom there is nothing false"?

Today, we are reminded of the big role our angels play in our daily
lives. While we usually think of angels as "messengers of God" - like
Gabriel and Michael - they are also instruments through whom God
manifests his great love and caring for each one of us, watching and
protecting us from evil. During those times when we and those we care
for have to contend with so many struggles and temptations, let us
pray to the guardian angels to help us and guide us.

We pray ...

prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
