5 stars for Saint Raphael-Angel of Marriage Healing Joy Travel

Who is this Saint, Archangel Raphael?

Meet Saint Raphael, also known as the Archangel Raphael, who, I must tell you, is my favourite Saint and Archangel! His name 'Raphael' means 'God's Healer'.

The Catholic Church has set aside a special day each year – September 29 – to officially celebrate Saint Raphael but devotions and novenas to St. Raphael can be said anytime during the year.

This review is for a little but very handy book about St. Raphael which doubles as a novena book and a devotion book, with added explanations about who Saint Raphael is and his acclaimed spiritual powers.

I have had this beautiful little novena-devotion book on St. Raphael since 2003 and I have used it very often over the years. It has served as a great source of help and inspiration during challenging times in my life and at times when I faced certain anxieties or uncertainties.

This novena-devotion book introduces the reader to St. Raphael and angels in general, his most famous journeying with Tobias and the many areas in life in which he specifically offers us help (health, love, married happiness, joy, light, and happy meetings).

Following on from these explanations, are a very useful and powerful litany, a novena prayer and other prayers in devotion to St. Raphael.

This Catholic novena-devotion book will make a wonderful addition to your or someone else's spiritual collection.

      @esmonaco: CONGRATULATIONS to you and your wife, esmonaco! That is no small accomplishment since divorce rates are on the rise these days and less and less persons see the need to get married in order to build a family. May God continue to bless you both and your marriage and may St. Raphael guide you all towards with joyful meetings!. Have a blessed week and thanks for visiting and sharing.

      St. Raphael must be watching over me and my wife, as we will be married 41 years this year. I guess that I should do more reading about the Angle of Marriage. Thanks for a wonderful review
