(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday spoke about the feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, which is observed on Thursday.Speaking to pilgrims from Poland during the General Audience, the Holy Father  quoted scripture, saying the Angels are “all ministering spirits sent to serve, for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation.” (Heb 1:14)

“We must be aware of their invisible presence,” –  Pope Francis said – “Let us invoke them in prayer so that in every moment they remind us of the presence of God, and support us in the struggle against evil and guide us safely along the roads of our lives. We entrust to them ourselves, our dear ones, and those we hold in our hearts. Praise be to Jesus Christ.”

The Feast of the Archangels is also the patronal feast of Vatican Communications.
