Angel Prayers and Novenas
"Angels transcend every religion, every philosophy, every creed.
In fact angels have no religion as we know it ...
their existence precedes every religious system
that has ever existed on earth."
St. Thomas Aquinas

Chaplet of Archangel Israfel
'You are Israfel the Angel of Song,
You are Israfel the Burning One,
You are Israfel the sweetest voice of all creatures,
Singing praises of God in a thousand different tongues.'
3 'Hail Marys' to Mary, the Queen of angels.
On each bead in honor of the nine angelic choirs, one in honor of each choir, namely: Angels, Archangels, Thrones, Dominations, Virtues, Principalities, Powers, Cherubim and Seraphim say:
'Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of Hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your Glory!
Glory be to the Father:
Glory be to the Holy Spirit!'
'Archangel Israfel, angel of song, of love, of joy and light, pray for us'.

Return to Sarah's ArchAngels
The Sacred Scriptures have revealed the proper names of only three Angels, all of
whom belong to the Choir of the Archangels. The names are well known to all, namely:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael. Ancient apocryphal literature of the Old Testament
contains several other names of Archangels in addition to the three just mentioned.
Like the sources themselves, these other names are spurious. Names like Uriel,
Raguel, Sariel, and Jeremiel are not found in the canonical books of Sacred
Scripture, but in the apocryphal book of Enoch, fourth book of Esdras, and in
rabbinical literature. The Church does not permit proper names of Angels that are not
found in the canonical books of the Bible. All such names that were taken from
apocryphal writings were rejected under Pope Zachary, in 745. There must have been
danger of serious abuses in this regard during that century, because a similar step
was taken in a synod held at Aix-la-Chapelle in 789.
