Messengers of God

Today is the feast day of the three arch Angels that are named in Holy Scripture: St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael.  Contrary to popular belief, they are not sweet sentimental cherubs. In scripture one of the first things an angels says when appearing to some one is Fear Not. That is because they reflect the glory and holiness of God. Holiness inspires fear, or awe.

Several years back, I greatly disappointed several of the girls in an 8th grade confirmation class by telling them that angels were pure spirit. Sorry. No wings.

Monsignor Pope has the A-Z on Angels. Get thou there!
