Pendants, Medals of Saint Raphael

Saint Raphael and Tobias
 
 

Saint Raphael medals show him standing atop a large fish bowl or holding a fish at the end of line. This is direct reference to the Book of Tobit where he told Tobias to catch a fish and then used the gallbladder to heal Tobit's blindness. He drove the demon Asmodeus away by burning the heart and liver of the fish.

Sometimes a Raphael medal depicts Raphael leading Tobit with his right hand while he carries a physician's alabaster jar in his left hand. Sometimes he carries a staff. Sometimes he appears to be carrying on a merry conversation with Tobias.

The Archangel Raphael
is concerned with every affliction of the sons of men. He is charged with the sacred duty of healing the earth and mankind of its maladies. The staff he carries symbolizes his duty. The fish is an ancient symbol of medicine.

When Solomon prayed to God for help in the building of the Temple,
God gave him a magic ring delivered by St. Raphael. The ring, engraved with a five-pointed star, held the power to subdue all demons. With this 'slave labor' of demons granted by God Solomon was able to complete the building of the Temple.

Saint Raphael is one of the seven archangels
who stand before the throne of God. He, along with Michael and Gabriel are the only one called by name in the Holy Scriptures. Scripture lists nine choirs of angels are one of the nine choirs of angels. In ascending order, they are 1) Angels, 2) Archangels, 3) Principalities, 4) Powers, 5) Virtues, 6) Dominations, 7) Thrones, 8) Cherubim, and 9) Serapaphim

Angels are pure spirits created for the purpose of being servants and messengers of God. They exist on a higher order than human beings and have no bodies nor do they depend on matter for their existence and activity. They are separate from saints. Humans cannot become angels but they must become saints in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. Angels are immortal. They are vast in number and yet every one has an individual personality. One of their greatest duties is to protect, shelter and aid mankind.
