Gabriel, whose name means “man of God,” is one of the three Archangels, the messengers of God. In the Old Testament, St. Gabriel appeared to the prophet Daniel and explained the prophet’s visions of the coming Messiah. He appeared to Zachariah to announce the birth of John the Baptist. He also announced to Mary that she would have a son, and that her son would be the savior of the world.
