Who is like God?, Strength of God, and Medicine of God - The Archangels

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Blessed Saint Gabriel, Archangel
We beseech thee to intercede for us at the throne of divine mercy:
As thou didst announce to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation,
so through thy prayers may we receive strength of faith and
courage of spirit, and thus find favor with God and redemption through Christ Our Lord.
May we sing the praise of God our Savior with the angels and saints in heaven forever and ever.

Blessed Saint Raphael, Archangel,
We beseech thee to help us in all our needs and trials of this life, 
as thou, through the power of God, didst restore sight and give guidance to 
young Tobit. We humbly seek thine aid and intercession, 
that our souls may be healed, our bodies protected from all ills,
and that through divine grace we may be made fit 
to dwell in the eternal Glory of God in heaven. 

In anticipation of the Feast of the Archangels. On the shield going counter clockwise; St. Michael, represented by a shield and sword with the symbolic colors of  gold(yellow) and orange, St. Gabriel represented by a fleur de lis (lilly) and the colors of silver(white) and blue and St. Raphael represented by a fish over a staff and the colors of yellow and gray.
