Saint Gabriel is an angel who serves as a messenger of God to certain people.
He is mentioned in the Old Testament where he speaks to Daniel. He is mentioned in the New Testament a few times, first in Luke 1:13 where he appears to Zacharias (John the Baptist's dad) and again at the Annunciation where he appears to Mary (Luke 1:28-33).
Gabriel's attributes are the Archangel; he is clothed in blue or white; and is seen carrying a lily, a trumpet, a shining lantern, a branch from Paradise, a scroll or a scepter. In art, Gabriel is most commonly represented in the scene of the Annunciation.
Saint Gabriel is the patron saint of messengers, telecommunication workers, postal workers.
His feast day is September 29.
