The word "archangel" comes from the Greek phrase "the greatest messenger of God". The angels were sent to Earth for the purpose of setting in motion the Creator's plan: to bring peace and joy to every person. Since health issues can disrupt this state of peace and tranquility, God commissioned Archangel Raphael to handle the health and well-being of all people. His help extends not only to physical health. It is the health of the spirit, soul, body, life, events and all other things.
Those working in the field of traditional and alternative medicine, charity, and volunteering are all under Raphael's auspices. The color of emerald green corresponds to its healing energy.
