PRAYER TO SAINT BARACHIEL THE ARCHANGEL


feast day September 29, 2018

Whose name means "Blessings of God"

Patron of the Sacrament of Matrimony

Barachiel carries an abundant basket of bread, the staff of life, symbolizing Christian parenthood and it’s grave responsibilities both spiritual and temporal, to protect and provide for, the children God desires of married couples. 
He is also a powerful intercessor for the barren as well as for troubled marriages. 

He carries in his hand a book, a reminder of the wealth of instructions in the Holy Scripture, the writings of the saints and Papal encyclicals for husbands, wives and children concerning marriage and family life.


In iconography he is sometimes shown holding a white rose against his chest, or with rose petals scattered on his clothing. 

Archangel Barachiel is the angel of God’s blessings. 

While asking God to bless all our good efforts, let us also appeal to Archangel Barachiel for help.

However, we must accept the Lord’s blessing not only for prosperity but also for our cross, i.e. the sorrows without which there is no salvation. 
May Archangel Barachiel give us strength to carry our blessed crosses. 

Through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ, His passion, death and resurrection, all His disciples are brought to a transforming union with Him. Through His transformation in love, the soul becomes Christ-like. As such, every Christ-like soul becomes, by adoption, the child of the Father. 

St. Barachiel is the Archangel who was assigned by God to keep watch over His adopted children, taking care that He and the choirs of angels assigned to the task guard these transformed souls in all their ways, bearing them up in their hands, "lest they dash their feet against the stone on their way to their heavenly
home." (Psalm 91, 12) -- The Guardian Angels.

O Powerful Archangel,
St. Barachiel, filled with heaven's
glory and splendor,
you are rightly called God's benediction.

We are God's children
placed under your
protection and care.
Listen to our supplications ______.

Grant that through your loving intercession,
we may reach 
our heavenly home one day.
Sustain us and protect us
from all harm --that we may
possess for all eternity
the peace and happiness that
Jesus has prepared for us in heaven.

Present to God the Father
all these petitions through
Jesus Christ our Lord
together with the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.

Amen.

Parents Prayer to St. Barachiel

Oh Blessed St. Barachiel, 
obtain for us through your intercession, 
the fullness of the graces 
of the most holy sacrament of matrimony. 
Intercede for us most fervently, 
in those moments of great duress and temptation, 
when we are most unlikely to recall your power 
to intercede for us, that through your benevolent love, 
you may thwart the efforts of the evil one to harm our marriage, our family and our faith. 
Be our bulwark against our weaknesses 
that our union may grow stronger, 
our family may grow more pious 
and our faith may grow deeper. 
St. Barachiel come with your legion of angels 
to rouse us out of our torpor! 
Help us and our children 
to do good and grow in the love of God and Mary.

Amen
