Raphael QUESTION from Benjamin on January 14, 2003 Where in the bible does it meantion Raphael?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on January 22, 2003 Dear Benjamin:
The Book of Tobit in the Old Testament, through eight of its fourteen chapters, is the narrative of the angel Raphael, who delivered Tobias' wife from demonic obsession, safely led him over a hazardous journey, cured his father Tobit of blindness, and then delivered a stirring injunction to Bless God, utter his praise before all the living for all the favors he has given you. Finally he identified himself. I am Raphael, he said, one of the seven angels who stand ever ready to enter the presence of the glory of the Lord (Tb. 12:6, 15).
