ST RAPHAEL THE ARCHANGEL ~ in bronze
A beautiful tenner for a man or woman who love this great and noble archangel of health and happy meetings and marriages. My husband and I have always had devotion to St Raphael and have been greatly blessed by his intercession. We pray to him daily whenever we begin a journey in our car. The Pater conveys a feeling of nobility, the Aves have an angelic quality to them in the luminous qualities of Mother of Pearl, the swirls of green in the MOP and in the little connector beads, his journey on earth. This is a stunning and sturdy piece!

"Because you were acceptable to God it was is necessary that temptation should prove you. Now the Lord sent me to heal you. I delivered Sarah, your son’s wife from the devil. For I am the angel Raphael. One of the seven who stand before God." ~ St Raphael addressing Tobias from the Old Testament book of Tobit.
