Mary's AngelThe angel Gabriel visited Mary in Nazareth. She was engaged to Joseph. Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to the Son of God. Mary was a virgin. Gabriel told her God's power would make the conception possible. Gabriel said "Nothing will be impossible with God." He then told Mary her elderly relative, Elizabeth, was six months pregnant.

Gabriel in the Old Testament

Mary's angel Gabriel is also the angel who appeared to Daniel in the Old Testament (cf. Daniel 8,9)

Gabriel in the Hail Mary

It is also worth noting that the archangel Gabriel's words to Mary form the beginning of the Hail Mary prayer:

Haile thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: Blessed art thou among women. Luke 1:28 KJV

In the Hail Mary, Elizabeth's greeting then complements Gabriel's greeting, i.e.

Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruite of thy wombe. Luke 1:42 KJV

Gabriel's Feast Day

The feast day of Gabriel, along with Raphael and Michael (the only other angels identified by name in Scripture), is celebrated on September 29th, commonly referred to as Michaelmas Day. (cf. Thurston & Attwater 1956, p.677)

A:Luke 1:26-31 says that the angel Gabriel came to Mary while still a virgin, and said that she would have a child, Jesus. In reading this, we should not consider a similar account in Matthew's Gospel, in which an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream, since it is inconceivable that the angel would appear to Mary and Joseph at different times, in different circumstances and in different forms. If the angel wanted to appear to both Joseph and Mary he would have appeared to them together. It is clear in Luke that the angel never appeared to Joseph, who must have relied entirely on Mary's account of the angelic visitation. If this is an accurate account, the angel must have not wanted Joseph to be present when he appeared to Mary. This does not tell us where Joseph was or even why the angel wanted him to learn about Jesus from Mary alone.

Elizabeth and Mary had good close relation as Elizabeth first told Mary that the angel had spoken to her husband. And likewise Mary told Elizabeth that the angel Gabriel had appeared to her.

The angel Gabriel told Mary that she would give birth to a son and she was to give that son the name Jesus, meaning "he who saves" or"saviour".

A:The author of Luke's Gospel says that an angel appeared to Mary, but not to Joseph. The author of Matthew's Gospel says that an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream, but not to Mary. In spite of the second-century attribution, both authors were actually anonymous, and Uta Ranke-Heinemann (Putting Away Childish Things) says that both nativity accounts are, with respect to time, place, and circumstances, a collection of legends.

Luke 1:26 does not specify exactly where Mary was when she received the news from the angel Gabriel. She was probably at her home in Galilee.

----------------------- In Matthew's Gospel, Joseph knows this because an angel appeared to him in a dream and told him about Jesus. In Luke's Gospel, Joseph knows this because Mary told him that an angel had appeared to her and told her about Jesus.

No list of names of angels is provided in the Bible, thus preventing humans from giving them undue attention.
