The bible refers to three angels by name: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. The Catholic tradition followed Judaism and regarded these three as angels who were of higher rank than other angels. This is why they are referred to as “archangels”.


The sign is known and used in the Catholic Deaf community in Melbourne.
