Azrael’s name means “Whom God helps”.
Azrael is the “angel of death” in the most beautiful and healing sense of the word. This is a far cry from the morbid image of the grim reaper. Azrael is, in contrast, a grief counsellor who lovingly guides souls to heaven after their crossing. He then consoles the survivors and helps them heal from grief.
Archangel Azrael holds our hands and steadies us through the transitions of life. He helps us acknowledge and deal with the fact that endings and beginnings are natural
