- After all the festivities, Tobit wanted to settle up with Azariah, which included paying him for his work during the journey.
- At this point, Azariah told them who he really was – an angel sent by God. Both Tobit and Tobias were shocked and a bit fearful. Yet, Azariah assured them of God’s providence and care for them. His job was to bring the healing God had decreed. Their job was to proclaim God’s great mercy. They were supposed to write everything down that had happened. Then Azariah simply disappeared.
The Sacraments are Jesus Christ's presence in us. So it is important for us to go to Confession and receive Holy Communion.- Pope Francis via twitter on Nov 23, 2013.
