In the book of Enoch, there are 8 archangels: Uriel, Raphael, Raguel, Michael, Sariel, Phanuel and Gabriel. The eight archangels are part of an ancient tradition of Jewish origin.
However, the Catholic Church only counts three of them. Indeed, only the texts that belong to the Holy Scriptures are considered valid. Therefore, it was established in the Middle Ages that only three archangels mentioned in the Bible were authorized: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.
Do you know who they are exactly? Do you know how and why to invoke them? The Palais du rosaire will explain it all to you.
