On June 8, 793, the terrible, berserk men of the north, later to be called “Vikings,” disembarked from their dragon-prow ships upon the island of Lindisfarne, located near England’s Northumbrian coast, sacking the Church of St. Cuthbert and beginning what would become the nearly complete domination of England.
While the Viking in presence in England was brief—merely a couple hundred years—it lasted long enough to significantly alter the linguistic, genetic, and even religious landscape of Great Britain. The words gifted to English such as “club,” “ransack,” “scathe,” and “slaughter” reflected the ferocious preoccupations of these sea-traveling marauders. Moreover, the fact that many Scottish and English people, especially those from the northwestern part of Britain, known under Viking rule as “Danelaw,” find “Scandinavian DNA” in their 23andMe results further indicates that the Vikings took many British women as wives and lovers—whether by will or force.

Angels have very active roles in salvation history, but Archangels are perhaps the most familiar to us of the nine choirs.
Gabriel and Raphael were seen many times as they acted as messengers to God's chosen people.
March twenty-fourth is the feast of St. Gabriel, and RTV put together the following to remind our friends of this great intercessor and herald of the Messiah.
St. Gabriel, patron saint of messengers, pray for us.
