Prophecy of Isaias 7: 14
At the bidding of the Divine Will the holy Gabriel
presented himself at the foot of the throne intent
upon the immutable essence of the Most High. His
Majesty then expressly charged him with the message,
which he was to bring to the most holy Mary and
instructed him in the very words with which he was
to salute and address Her. Thus the first Author of
the message was God himself, who formed the exact
words in his divine mind, and revealed them to the
holy archangel for transmission to the most pure Mary.
AND IN THE SIXTH MONTH, the angel Gabriel
was sent from God into a city of Galilee,
called Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a
man whose name was Joseph, of the house of
David; and the virgin’ s name was Mary.
And the angel being come in, said unto her:
Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee:
blessed art thou among women. Who having heard,
was troubled at his saying, and thought with
herself what manner of salutation this should be.
And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for
thou hast found grace with God.
Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and
shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call
his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall
be called the Son of the most High; and the
Lord God shall give unto him the throne of
David his father; and he shall reign in the
house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom
there shall be no end.
And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be
done, because I know not man? And the angel
answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall
come upon thee, and the power of the most High
shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the
Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called
the Son of God.
And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath
conceived a son in her old age; and this is the
sixth month with her that is called barren: Because
no word shall be impossible with God.
And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
be it done to me according to thy word. And the
angel departed from her.

Prayer to Saint Gabriel the Archangel
O Archangel Saint Gabriel, great announcer
and messanger of the Lord, who appearing in
Nazareth to the Virgin Mary, communicated how
by virtue of the Divine Love and Power she
would be the future Holy Mother of the Redeemer.
In the same manner you informed those anguished
souls present before the holy sepulchre that Jesus
had risen, confident in the power of your mediation
and aware of your sanctity. We implore you that in
the final instant of our earthly existence you be
the communicator, the messenger, the celestial
attorney that announces us and defends us in the
supreme tribunal. Amen
Prayer for an Individual in Need
Glorious Archangel Gabriel, bless with your
light my beloved (name the person). Remove
(name) from the shadows of sadness and confusion,
guide (name) with your Light towards a new hope
that will calm (his/her) Being. I thank you,
glorious loving Archangel in hearing my request.
Thank you, Glorious Gabriel. Amen
Prayer to Saint Gabriel for Others
O loving messenger of the
Incarnation, descend upon all those
for whom I wish peace and happiness.
Spread your wings over the unborn and
the cradles of the new-born babies,
O thou who didst announce the coming of
the Infant Jesus. Give to the young a
lily petal from the virginal scepter in
your hand. Cause the Ave Maria to re-echo
in all hearts that they may find grace and
joy through Mary, Our Blessed Mother. Finally, recall the sublime
words spoken on the day of the Annunciation -
"Nothing is impossible with God," and
repeat them in hours of trial - to all I love -
that their confidence in Our Lord may be reanimated,
especially when all human help fails. Amen
Prayer for Purification
I manifest my intention of
purifying my body, mind and
heart, words and actions by
the Light of Your Love.
Dear Prince Gabriel, I resort
to thee in this sacred instant
so you may assist me in this
process of purification and
you help me be a pure and
transparent channel of the
Immaculate Love of God. Amen
