Prayer to

St. Raphael

the Archangel

Glorious Archangel St. Raphael,

great prince of the heavenly court,

you are illustrious for your gifts of

wisdom and grace. You are a guide

of those who journey by land or

sea or air, consoler of the afflicted,

and refuge of sinners.

I beg you, assist me in all my

needs and in all the sufferings of

this life, as once you helped the

young Tobias on his travels.

Because you are the "medicine of

God," I humbly pray you to heal

the many infirmities of my soul

and the ills that afflict my body. I

especially ask of you the favor and

the great grace of purity to

prepare me to be the temple of the

Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Verse on the back:

St. Raphael
PATRON OF PHYSICIANS, TRAVELERS AND THE BLIND

One of the seven archangels who stand before the Lord's

throne, Rafael is one of the only three angels

mentioned specifically by name in the Bible. (The others

included in the Bible, Michael and Gabriel, are also

archangels.) The name Raphael means "Healer of God.

According to the book of Tobit from the Old Testament, God sent

Raphael to Earth to help to Tobit, his son Tobias, and Sarah,

Tobiah's betrothed. Sarah was a widow whose seven bridegrooms

had each been killed by a demon on their wedding night. Rafael

guided Tobias through a long journey, showed him how to safely

marry Sarah, and pursued and bound the demon that plagued her.

Rafael also cured Tobit's blindness and allowed him to see the

light of heaven.

In John 5:1 - 4, a healing pool is described where the blind, the

lame, and the paralyzed come to be cured in waters stirred by

Raphael's hand. Because Raphael was Tobias traveling

companion, he is a patron of travelers and immigrants. His role in

helping Tobiah in his marriage to Sarah positioned him as a

heavenly advocate of love and a happy meetings. His restoration of

Tobit's sight leads many who are blind or suffering from diseases of

the eye to turn to him. As the "Healer of God" he is also the patron

of physicians, nurses and pharmacies as well as people with both

physical and mental illnesses.
