Raphael means ” God has healed “. This mighty Archangel is mentioned in the Book of Tobit, where he brought healing and protection to Tobit. We can ask the intercession of St Raphael to protect us in our journeys or in our illness.
Blessed Saint Raphael, Archangel,We beseech thee to help us in all our needs and trials of this life, as thou, through the power of God, didst restore sight and give guidance to young Tobit. We humbly seek thine aid and intercession, that our souls may be healed,our bodies protected from all illness,and that through divine grace we may be made fit to dwell in the eternal Glory of God in heaven. Amen.
