Gabriel is the angel of the Annunciation. He carries a horn as a symbol of his role as God's herald. He is dressed in the vestment of a deacon, a servant of the church. The wind which swirls his garments around him represents the presence of God. The lilys are his attribute and refer to the virginity of Mary. The spear is a symbol of his heavenly authority.
Today is the Feast of St. Gabriel the Archangel. Please take the time to pray your new chaplets. If you are interested in purchasing one here is the link.
Let us all continue to hear God's call in our lives and to take on the challenges he brings us.
