Archangel Gabriel is also known as the "strength God" or "Man of God" Hebrew name. He is often shown with a spear in one hand and a mirror made of jasper in his left. The mirror symbolizes the hidden wisdom of God. He is considered as the angel of visions and the messenger of God. He helps people understand God's message and encourages them to embrace it with a pure heart.
It is believed that Archangel Gabriel holds one of the highest ranks within the angels of higher spiritual dimensions! He is revered and commemorated on September 29 of each year… which is celebrated as the Archangel’s Day. On this day, Archangel Gabriel is honored along with Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael, the other key archangels of the divine, spiritual realm.
In Christianity, Archangel Gabriel is mentioned in several instances- at times his name is explicitly mentioned and at other times it is implied… but all the same, throughout the bible, we find many references where Archangel Gabriel conveyed messages from the Divine and helped people in trying situations.

In Judaism as well we find many references to Archangel Gabriel. One of the most noted probably is the reference which indicates that he is the one who taught the divine ways to the Prophet Moses so that he could write The Book of Genesis.
In Islam, we find that Archangel Gabriel is called as Jibril. There is a sura 2: 97-98 which specifically indicates that the Lord Allah will become an enemy of all those who reject him and his angels, including Jibril (Archangel Gabriel).
Since Archangel Gabriel is considered as the messenger of the Divine and is associated with many instances where he brought messages from the cosmos to various key characters of spiritual-history, he is associated with the fields of communication.
