09-29-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 29, 2018
(Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, Archangels)
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 Man.”  Jn_1:47-51

Today we commemorate the Holy Archangels of God: Gabriel the great messenger of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Annunciation (Lk 1:26, Dn 8:15-16), Michael the defender and protector of God’s faithful against the evils of Satan (Jude 1:9, Rev 12:7-8), and Raphael the guide of Tobiah, in the Book of Tobit (Tb 12:15) and the healer of Sarah and Tobit.

And just as Jacob dreamt of a ladder ascending to heaven with angels ascending and descending on it, Jesus today tells us how that avenue, that ladder to heaven rests upon Him.  When we rely upon, follow and allow Jesus to lead our lives, this is where He will lead us.  With an angel on each arm we will ascend too, into the Heavenly Glory of God our Father.  I look forward to seeing you there, too, one day, beloved, with all the angels and saints as our companions.
