SEPTEMBER 29 is Michaelmas, the Feast of the Archangels.
Michaelmas is also known as the Feast of St Michael and all the Angels.
There are 7 core Archangels mentioned in the bible, the most recognizable ones are Archangels Michael, Rafael and Gabriel.
Uriel, the 4th Archangel, is not directly named in the Bible, but in some Jewish and Judaic writings, he is credited as the angel who warned Noah about the flood, led Abraham out of Ur, and introduced the Cabala.
I wasn’t really familiar with Archangel Uriel until that morning about 4 years ago when Chiara told me about meeting him in a dream. She said he was unbelievably handsome, with the combined features of Thor, Legoslas, Edward Cullen in Twilight, and that he had a fiery aura. She almost forgot his message, having been mesmerized by his divine good looks.
One other time, we were in a hotel room with yellow walls nearJhiuzhaigu, China. I woke up when I heard her mumbling. She told me there was a lady covered by a gray shroud walking towards her bed.
Immediately she prayed to Archangel Michael and felt his protection.
She saw his thick trunk-like arm wielding his blue sword. She said Archangel Michael smelled of fresh air, sunshine, and grass.
In Judaic tradition, there are archangels for the 7 days of the week : Gabriel for Sunday, Michael for Monday, Raphael for Tuesday, Uriel for Wednesday, Raguel for Thursday, Ramiel(Jeremiel) for Friday, and Sariel (Raziel) for Saturday.
