Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

3 El Nasiy
(The Third Day of the Blessed Month of El-Nasi)

 

The Commemoration of the Angel Raphael, the Archangel

On this day, the church celebrates the commemoration of the honorable Angel Raphael, the third of the Archangels, and the dedication of his church outside the city of Alexandria. During the time of Pope Theophilus, the twenty-third Patriarch, a faithful woman came from Rome, with her children and had with her a picture of the honorable Archangel Raphael. She had inherited much money from her husband. She revealed to the Pope her desire to build many churches. He showed her a large heap, which was in front of the patriarchate, which she removed and built a church in its place. Then she built another church in the name of the Angel Raphael, which was consecrated on this day.

The intercession of this honorable angel be with us. Amen.
