You should be aware that the word “angel” denotes a function rather than a nature…But personal names are assigned to some, not because they could not be known without them, but rather to denote their ministry when they came among us. Thus, Michael means “Who is like God”; Gabriel is “The Strength of God”; and Raphael is “God’s Remedy.”A sermon of Pope St Gregory the Great, Today’s Office
Michaelmas (/ˈmɪkəlməs/MIK-əl-məs; also known as the Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, the Feast of the Archangels, or the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels) is a Christian festival observed in some Western liturgical calendars on 29 September. In some denominations a reference to a fourth angel, usually Uriel, is also added. Michaelmas has been one of the four quarter days of the financial year.
Saint Michael, help us in the battle for salvation we are fighting. Saint Gabriel, bring us the good news that Jesus has saved us, and grant us hope. Saint Raphael, take our hands and help us along on the path of complete healing. #ArchangelSaintsPope Francis

in my pride do i go beyond my given function and attempt to deal with the evil GOD has allowed to remain in power until the end of the world in my own way and timing?
