Lives of Saints - Archangel Gabriel Christianity - Books
And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell;                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

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.
