Our monthly series on the Saints and Mental health continues as Deacon Eric Gurash reflects on Archangel, St. Raphael, and his role not just as a healer of physical ailments, but as a powerful intercessor and companion in times of serious grief and emotional distress.

Show Snippet: "The story of Tobit and his family reminds us that these answered prayers often come in surprising, disguised ways. A coworker or friend, a bit of scripture or song heard at a time of great need, or, as with Raphael, a lonely traveler, a stranger...all may be secret encounters with the divine reaching out to give answer to the deep need of our hearts."
