Just for interest; on my other blog - Brigid's Mantle - I have been writing a sequence of blessings for the week involving the seven archangels that stand before the throne of God.
The Catholic Church names only three by tradition but the Eastern Orthodox Church both names them and gives them days of the week to take care of,
St Michael (Sunday), St Gabriel (Monday), St Raphael(Tuesday), St Uriel (Wednesday), St Sealtiel (Thursday), St Jegudiel, (Friday), and St Barachiel (Saturday).
I am now just over halfway through, with the lesser known archangels making themselves know as the week draws to a close. Thank you to everyone who has visited already and a blessing that I wrote a year or so ago.
Circle of Protection
I call on the mercy of the
To send circles of angels
To protect me.
And the mighty Archangels
To stand over me
To shield me with their wings.
To the North, stand Michael, Prince and Warrior
To the South, stand Gabriel, Speaker of Truth
To the West, stand Raphael, Healer and Defender
To the East, stand Uriel, Lightbearer.
May they be comrades in arms
Guardians of faith
Beacons against the darkness
Sentinels of God's Love
in Jesus' name
