ANGELS

I’m a big believer of angels.  I know I’ve had angels around me at various times in my life.  Some I could feel and some I could see.  Angels are all around us, especially during difficult times.  I know a couple who desperately need an angel  right now to help them through a very difficult time.  Even though I’m positive an angel has found his/her way to this couple, if there are any angels that can hear my thoughts, please find your way across the country to a very special couple who need you way more than I do at this moment…

A few word about angels:

THE ANGELS

The existence of angels — a truth of faith

    The existence of the spiritual, non-corporeal beings that Sacred Scripture usually calls “angels” is a truth of faith. The witness of Scripture is as clear as the unanimity of Tradition.

Who are they?

     St. Augustine says: “‘Angel’ is the name of their office, not of their nature. If you seek the name of their nature, it is ‘spirit’; if you seek the name of their office, it is ‘angel’: from what they are, ‘spirit’, from what they do, ‘angel.'” With their whole beings the angels are servants and messengers of God. Because they “always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven” they are the “mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word”.

     As purely spiritual creatures angels have intelligence and will: they are personal and immortal creatures, surpassing in perfection all visible creatures, as the splendor of their glory bears witness.
