Daily Gospel Commentary
Saturday September 29th Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael
John 1:47-51
(Jesus) “And he said to him, (Nathanael) “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (Jn 1:51)
The celebration of the three archangels is a victory in the spiritual war of these pure spiritual creatures endowed with free will. It is a victory of obedience to God by accepting the human nature of Jesus Christ and Mary as Queen of the angels.
Michael described as “who is like God,” watches over God’s people. Gabriel described as “God is Strong” announced to Zachariah and to Mary God’s plan. Raphael means “God Heals. He is one of the seven angels who stand ever ready to enter the presence of God. He cured Tobit of his blindness.
In the Gospel, what Jesus tells Nathanael refers to Jacob’s dream of a ladder spanning heaven and earth that enables the angels to pass in and out of the world (Gen 28:11-15). Jesus puts himself in the center of this vision, claiming that he is the place where heaven touches down to earth; he is the house of God, and the mediator through whom the angels exercise their ministry.
