Lonely hearts are being advised by the Catholic Church to consult an archangel to help them find love, according to an article in the Daily Telegraph.
The Catholic Enquiry Office (CEO) is suggesting that, rather than enduring rounds of speed dating to find a partner, people could pray to Saint Raphael, the patron saint of “happy meetings”.
Raphael, a Saint?
The only Raphael I knew was very fond of “happy meetings” especially if there were brown envelopes floating in his direction, but you would not call him a saint!
“Now where would you find an archangel?” I hear you ask. I know where you might find an angel with very long arms, alas she is as cold as steel.
