Identifying archangels

On Sept. 29, we celebrate the feast of the Archangels. The Bible mentions the three archangels by name: Gabriel, Raphael and Michael. When you see an angel in religious art, you can identify the archangels if you know their symbols. Archangel Michael defends us from evil. He carries a sword and sometimes is shown with a devil. Archangel Gabriel is a messenger. He often is shown with a lily. Archangel Raphael helps heal the sick. He often is shown with a fish. Next time you see a picture of an angel, see if you can tell if it’s an archangel. And if so, which one?
