The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Thursday, Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel, & Raphael, Archangels, 29 September 2022 Revelation 12:7-12 ><000'> + ><000'> + ><000'> John 1:47-51
Jesus answered and said to him (Nathanael), “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.”John 1:50-51
O dearest Jesus, my Lord and my God, I have believed like Nathanael but until now, I have not lived totally in you and with you!
It was in your coming, Jesus, the angels have become most truest when you opened the heavens for us, when you the Son of God came to dwell among us so that through you God comes to us and we through you go to him.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. They conquered him the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them.”Revelation 12:10, 11-12a
Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, enable us, lead us to be like you: always listening to God's voice, making his words our very lives as we come to him in faith and complete surrender so that life and healing, good news and power from him may flow to mankind through us. Amen.
