An interpretation from the image
of Sealtiel / Selaphiel.
Her name means 'Orationis Dei' in latin, "God's prayer, intercesor of God". She is the archangel of prayers. As a thuriferus [one who carries a censer] presents people's prayers to God symbolised as the smoke of the incence.
The censer combines the 3 gifts of the Biblical Magi: gold, incence and myrrh. The resin of incence and myrrh is used for perfume [pleasure] and medicine [analgesic against pain]. This archangel presides over exorcisms, help to interpret dreams, break addicitons, and guides in prayers.
