Lives of Saints - Archangel Gabriel Christianity - Books
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

Archangel Gabriel
   

The Archangel Gabriel (meaning 'Man of God') is mentioned in the Old Testament as the angel who helped Daniel understand his visions (Dan 8:15 and 9:21). In the New Testament, it was Gabriel who told Zachariah the hierarch, contrary to all hope and by God's favour, that he and his wife Elizabeth will have a son who would be the prophet of Jesus (Luke 1:11-20). Gabriel also revealed to the Virgin Mary how in her would be born Jesus, the Son of God (Luke 1:26-38). Mary's faithful response, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word", makes her the highest model of obedience to God, because she chose to believe and obey Him firmly.
