We’ve all heard of the Archangels, who are considered high-ranking angels of God. Their name comes from the Greek language, and means ‘chief angel’. The Archangels are assigned to protect us from all kinds of spiritual harm–often called Satan’s match, as God is omnipotent and cannot be rivaled.
In Catholic tradition, there are three who are named: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. But some say that there are actually seven Archangels, each one serving as a guardian angel for every day of the week. And for Mondays, it is actually Angel Gabriel who is the guardian angel. (Read: Meet the Three Archangels: Gabriel, Michael, Raphael)
So if you’re looking to ask for protection and guidance for the first day of the work week, recite this prayer to Angel Gabriel.
Prayer to Angel Gabriel
Blessed Saint Gabriel, Archangel
We beseech you to intercede for us at the throne of divine mercy:
As you announced the mystery of the Incarnation to Mary,
so through your prayers may we receive strength of faith and courage of spirit,
and thus find favor with God and redemption through Christ Our Lord.
May we sing the praise of God our Savior
with the angels and saints in heaven forever and ever.
