Commemorated November 8
The name Uriel in Hebrew can be translated to mean the "Light of God or the "Fire of God". As the main spiritual role of Archangel Uriel is that of the angel who guides the deceased during the Last Judgment, this has drawn the connection between Uriel and the "Raging Fire of God's Judgement". Uriel, also, is regarded as an angel with deep ties to the Earth and humanity, whereas the other archangels primarily fulfill duties in heaven.
Uriel is often referred to as the Archangel of the Earth. It is believed that Uriel was the angel that wrestled with Jacob in 32nd Chapter of Genesis.
The Archangel Uriel is one of the four leading archangels within traditional Orthodox Christian scripture. Uriel is commemorated together with the other archangels and angels with a feast day of the "Synaxis of the Archangel Michael and the Other Bodiless Powers" on November 8 of the liturgical calendar.
Prayer to the Archangel Uriel:
“The Light or Fire of God”
Oh holy St. Uriel, come to our aid with your legion of
angels! Intercede for us that our hearts may burn with the
fire of God. Obtain for us the grace to use the sword of
truth to fight against all that is not in conformity to the most
adorable will of God in our lives.
