St. Rachel

 

 About Saint Rachel

Saint Rachel was born in the 17th to 18th century B.C.  Her name means “the lamb” and she is also known as Rachel the Matriarch.  She is mentioned in the Old Testament as Jacob’s wife, the daughter of Laban, and the sister of Leah. Saint Rachel was ashamed during most of her married years because she could not have children.  Eventually, after many years, she gave birth to two sons, Joseph and Benjamin.

Saint Rachel died during childbirth and is buried in Bethlehem.  She was canonized a saint pre-congregation.

 Saint Rachel the Matriarch

Birth of Joseph

Saint Rachel prayed to God, asking to bear a son for Jacob.  He already had six sons by his first wife, Leah.  God answered Saint Rachel’s prayer as seen in the scripture reading:

“Then God remembered Rachel; he heard her prayer and made her fruitful. She conceived and bore a son, and she said, “God has removed my disgrace.” So she named him Joseph, meaning, “May the LORD add another son to this one for me!” - Genesis 29:28-30.23

Rachel died giving birth to Benjamin.  She became the mother of two of Jacob’s twelve sons who would become the twelve tribes of Israel.  The feast of St. Rachel is celebrated on November 1.

The Tomb of Saint Rachel

Saint Rachel’s tomb has great religious significance for Jewish people, Muslims, and Christians.  The tomb is situated between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.  After Saint Rachel died, her husband “Jacob set a pillar upon her grave.” (Genesis 35:19)

The Jewish people consider Saint Rachel’s tomb one of their most sacred sites.  Many Jewish women who are sterile make pilgrimages to Saint Rachel’s tomb in the hopes that she will intercede for them and help them become pregnant.

In Jewish culture, it is believed that Saint Rachel weeps for her children both past and present.  Her tears are known as Rachel’s Lament.  When the Jews were sent into exile, she cried as they passed her grave. 

Saint Rachel and Christianity

Saint Rachel the matriarch of the twelve tribes of Israel is honored by Christians, as well as the Jewish people. From her lineage, Jesus was conceived which brought the foundation of Christianity. Many Christians wear a Saint Rachel medal or a Saint Rachel necklace to honor this important matriarch.
