Archangel Barachiel: Leader of all the Guardian Angels

Barachiel, the Leader of all the Guardian Angels. Barachiel, is one of the seven Archangels, in Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox tradition. In the Third Book of Enoch he is described as one of the angelic princes, Barachiel is described in the “Almadel of Solomon” as one of the chief Angels of the first and fourth chora. Barachiel is often confused with the angel “Baraqiel” who is regarded as the Angel of lightning. In iconography, Barachiel is sometimes shown
one of the seven Archangels , or with rose petals scattered on the clothing particularly the cloak. The scattering of rose petals was to symbolize or represent God’s sweet blessings showering down on people. In Roman Catholicism, Barachiel is depicted holding a bread basket or a staff, both of which are said to symbolize the blessings of children that God bestows on parents. Barachiel’s responsibilities are as varied as the blessings for which the archangel is named, Barachiel is also the chief of the guardian angels and it is written that Barachiel may be prayed to for all the benefits which the guardian angel is thought to confer if one is not praying to the guardian angel directly, but as an intercession. He is seen as an official saint in Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox tradition, in particular a patron of family and married life. He is also seen as the angel assigned by God to watch over converts (also called “adopted children of God”) to assist them in their lives.
