St. Raphael - Angel Stories

By: Richard M. Hanisits, M.Ed.

It must be 30 years ago that a former student dropped by my office, where I was a guidance counselor in a Chicago Catholic high school. Passing through town he decided to pay me a visit. We chatted for sometime when he sorrowfully disclosed that he and his wife had almost given up in trying to conceive a child. Seized, I guess, by a sudden inspiration, I asked if his faith was strong; and he said, yes. I said that I wanted to tell him about a friend of mine, Saint Raphael the Archangel. I narrated briefly who saint Raphael was and the great things attributed to Raphael by the Church. Then I removed a medal of Saint Raphael from a desk drawer and handed it to him. I remember I said: " Take this medal and place it on your marriage bed, and pray to Saint Raphael for the gift of a child."
Months later the young man called me long distance from a hospital in Baltimore to inform me that his wife had given birth to a healthy baby girl. He kept in touch with me for awhile and several times asked for several medals of Saint Raphael. We somehow lost touch; and sometimes I think that miracle baby must be married by now and perhaps a mother. Thank you, Saint Raphael, and lead us to those for whom we are looking.
