Today we celebrate the Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael the three archangels. What role do these three archangels play in the Church? These three archangels are models for us for they in some particular way prepared the way of the Lord. You and I too are called to prepare the way of the Lord.
How do we prepare the way of the Lord? For starters, simply by living a life of faith! It’s amazing how much we convey to others through our examples. So I often I say it is not enough to speak about Jesus, more importantly rather we need to show others who Jesus Christ is. Our kind words and works do wonders. One thing we must speak about this morning is the topic of forgiveness. All of us have been hurt at times by others, and when we hold that hurt inside and withhold forgiveness it weighs us down. You and I are called to model Jesus Christ for He showed forgiveness and mercy to everyone. In doing so in the end not only will we prepare the way of the Lord in the lives of others but we also prepare a way for the Lord in our hearts!
