to any Michaels, Gabriels, Raphaels and anyone else named after an angel (I believe there are a few more names passed down through Jewish tradition.

I don't have a Christian name, but I was confirmed in the RCC with the name "Angel".  This is the closest I get to having a "Name Day".  :)

I chose St. Michael the Archangel for my confirmation name & saint way back in 64.

May we be protected from the evil one.

She must not read OCNet.  :P
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Sancte Michaele Archangele defende nos in proelio, contra neuquitiam et insidias diaboli esto prasiedium. Imperet illi Deus , supplices deprecamur, tuque princeps militae caelestis Satanam aliosquam spiritus malignos que ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo.

I echo & second Phils' post, kinda like Dennis the Menace fame, but will all do have them... it's not confined to a individual.
