The Holy Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael : Thursday, 29th September 2022

Daily Word Of God

John 1:47-51

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There is an Israelite in who deserves the name, incapable of deceit.’ ‘How do you know me?’ said Nathanael.   ‘Before Philip came to call you’, said Jesus, ‘I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel.’

Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.’ And then he added, ‘I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and, above the Son of Man, the angels of God ascending and descending.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Archangel Michael, Gabriel and Raphael were created by God    to “protect, communicate and heal” us.  These are God’s ways of loving and caring for us at all times.


  • We should be grateful to God at all times for His constant and caring ways that continue to attend to our needs and desires of life.


  • As God is so caring toward us we, in turn, are called to care for the needs of others especially the aged, the weak, the marginalized of our family, neighbours and the world.
