(Blatently stolen from "Saints in Art" by Rosa Giorgi, Trans. by T. M. Hartmann)

Tobit was a God-fearing man. But then he went blind and his life sucked. He prayed to God for help.

Sarah was a young woman who had been married seven times. Each of her husbands had been killed by a demon on their wedding night. Sarah prayed to God for help.

Tobit thought he was dying, so he sent Tobias, his son, to get for him some money he was owed.

Tobias joined up with a fellow named Azarias, who was really Raphael in disguise.

With Raphael/Azarias's help, Tobias married Sarah, drove away her demon, and cured Tobit's blindness.

And then Raphael revealed that he was Raphael, and left.

And that's Raphael's big story.
