In her book The Healing Miracles of Archangel Raphael, Doreen Virtue notes that the valuable help that Raphael gives Tobias when they're traveling together inspired people to name Raphael apatron saint of travelers: "Tobias gains wisdom, valuable experiences, and a bride along the way, thanks to Raphael. Ever since he accompanied Tobias on his journey, archangel Raphael has been a patron saint of travelers."
The story continues in Tobit 12:5-6: "So Tobias called his companion and said, 'Take half of what you brought back, in payment for all you have done, and go in peace.'
Then Raphael took them both aside and said, 'Bless God, utter his praise before all the living for the favor he has shown you. Bless and extol his name. Proclaim before all people the deeds of God as they deserve, and never tire of giving him thanks."
