Raphael is the healing archangel. His name in Hebrew means “God Cures”. He represents the qualities of truth, concentration, and healing. Raphael manages the Virtues order of angels. He is affectionately known for his powers of healing and for saving people from danger. Because of his knack for rescuing those in unfamiliar territory or dire straits, he is also said to protect travelers. One of my favorites.
