Archangels are believed to be messengers of God sent to direct, guide, defend, and protect us. Only the three we reverently remember on this feast day – Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael -- are named in the Old as well as the New Testament.

According to the Delaney Dictionary of Saints, from the sixth century to 1970, September 29 was observed as Michaelmas Day and honored only St. Michael. Since 1970, September 29 has been celebrated as the Feast of all three Archangels. Michael is known as the great protector; Gabriel as the bearer of good news; and Raphael as the divine healer.
