Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Archangel Gabriel.
Archangel Gabriel is one of the three Archangels mentioned in Christianity. His name means "Man of God" and his coming is mentioned in the Old and New Testaments when he announces to the Virgin Mary that she will give birth to the Son of God and when he announces to Joseph that they must leave Egypt and find refuge in Israel.
Archangel Gabriel is commemorated on the 8th of November each year, together with Archangel Michael.

O Commanders of the Heavenly Host, we the unworthy beseech you, that through your entreaties you will fortify us, guarding us in the shelter of the wings of your ethereal glory, even as we fervently bow before you crying: "Deliver us from all danger, as Commanders of the Powers on high! "
