Feast day September 29,2018

Whose name means "Prayer of God"

Patron of the 
Sacrament of Holy Orders
St. Sealtiel carries an incenser which is the symbol of the prayers and offerings of the Divine Sacrifice of the Mass, only through the actions through the ordained. 

“And another Angel approached, and he stood before the altar, holding a golden censer. And much incense was given to him, so that he might offer upon the golden altar, which is before the throne of God, the prayers of all the saints.
And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended, in the presence of God, from the hand of the Angel.” 
Revelation 8:3-4

In the Eastern Orthodox Tradition Archangel Salaphiel is also our primary teacher of prayer. We can pray to Archangel Salaphiel for the Lord to grant us this gift of divine prayer.

Prayer to Archangel Sealtiel for Priests

Oh holy St. Sealtiel 
come to my aid with 
your legion of angels! 
Intercede to our 
Almighty and merciful God! 
Graciously attend 
to my humble prayers; 
and make me, whom God 
has appointed 
to dispense 
the heavenly Mysteries 
through no merits of my own, 
but only through the infinite 
bounty of His Mercy, 
a worthy minister at His sacred altar; 
that what is set forth by my voice may 
be confirmed by His Holy Grace. 
Pray for me that our good Jesus may 
grant me the grace to be a priest after 
His own Sacred Heart!

Prayer to the Archangel Selaphiel 

O Pure and Holy Archangel 
St. Selaphiel, 
you bow to the Almighty Lord offering angelic salutations 
of praise and thanksgiving. 

Guide us in our prayer.
Like you, we would like
to unceasingly pray and
worship God the right way.

May our lives be like incense
pleasing to God.
While awaiting for the inevitable time
of separation from 
this material world,
may we praise the Holy Trinity
in the spirit of 
true love and humility
throughout the days of our life in eternity.
Obtain for us these favors _________
and present to God the Father
all these petitions through Jesus Christ our Lord
together with the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
