St. Gabriel, the Archangel, is associated with the Incarnation of Christ. He proclaimed the coming of Christ in the Old Testament, told Zachariah of the birth of St. John the Baptist, and of course, announced to Mary that she was chosen to give birth to Jesus. Traditionally, St. Gabriel is also believed to guard the Tree of Life and may have been the angel who expelled Adam and Eve from Eden.
The St. Gabriel Sterling Silver Medal honors him as the Patron Saint of modern telecommunications and of postal services. His Feast Day is September 29.
