Day 31 of the 54-Day Novena: Joyful Mysteries in Thanksgiving

St. Gabriel – Archangel

The festival of St. Gabriel was appointed for this day in the Roman Missal by Pope Benedict XV. It is placed close to the festival of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin to whom he announced that she had been chosen to become the Monther of God. In the Old Testament, he is mentioned in the Book of Daniel, and he was the Archangel who appeared to the High Priest, Zachary, the father of John the Baptist.
