St. Raphael, the intercessor of healing and health, the patron saint of those who are blind and ill, travelers, doctors and nurses… how are we not using him for help on a regular basis?! In our lifetime, there will always come a time when either you or your loved one faces illness. It could be early on in childhood or in later years as you age; but illness affects us all the same. It is devastating. It makes us anxious and worried, and not to mention, the fear. The fear of the unknown can do strange things to people; it can break even the strongest of man.

This is something that we will all have to face at one time or another. That is why, today, I wanted to call attention to St. Raphael the archangel and give you a slight introduction on how he can help you in this struggle.

In fact, Raphael’s name translates into “God heals,” if that isn’t enough of a sign, I don’t know what is! For those of you who have read the bible or any scriptures, perhaps you have heard his name. You often here of big, grand miracles, like how he was given the power to restore vision to a blind man. Now, you might be saying to yourself that miracles like THAT don’t happen anymore. But I am here to tell you they do…you simply need to ask! Maybe we do not hear about them because people don’t talk about them. In this social media driven age, we see negativity, tragedy, and devastation on an almost regular basis. Good does exist in the world, and so do healing miracles.

Whether you have the smallest health concern or you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, ask for health and healing. Say a prayer to St. Raphael for his intercession for a turn around in health. I know I said this last week, but this is what our angels are here for! They want to help us! They LOVE when we ask them for help! Never be afraid to ask. Whatever your faith base may be, I can assure you that there are angels among us, watching for us, and helping us. If you do not seem to be getting any better or you do not see the illness retreat- keep asking, not one time, not twice, but over and over again.

Thanks for reading everyone!
