Patience of Angels

Oh, Lily – I still don’t feel safe.

Gabriel before me
Raphael behind me
Michael to my right
Uriel on my left side
In the circle of fire

I’ve always had a soft spot for URIEL. This angel can be a he or a she.

Uriel/ˈjʊəriəl/ or Auriel (Hebrew: אוּרִיאֵל ʾŪrīʾēl, “Flame of God[5][6]” or “El/God is my flame[7][8]“; Greek: Οὐριήλ OúriēlCoptic: ⲟⲩⲣⲓⲏⲗ Ouriēl;[9]ItalianUriele;[10]Geʽez and Amharic: ዑራኤል ʿUraʾēl[11] or ዑርኤል ʿUriʾēl)[12] is the name of one of the archangels who is mentioned in the post-exilicrabbinic tradition and in certain Christian traditions. He is well known in the Russian Orthodox tradition (which considers him to be one of the seven major archangels) and recognized in the Anglican Church as the 4th archangel. He is also well known in European esotericmedieval literature. Uriel is also known as a master of knowledge and archangel of wisdom.

There’s a door in a wall in a house in a street
In a town where no-one knows her name
She’s the patience of angels

I’m no angel. But I’m on their side :o)

No. No. No. Go away Robbie Williams. Fingers in ears and not listening!!!
