From St. Augustine to John Henry Newman, the best one of the saints and males of God have lived on primary phrases with the angels; and the Church has continuously accorded them a really huge position in her theology.
Recent theologians have dwelt on dry questions about the character of the angels, however the early Fathers of the Church, with the reminiscence of Jesus clean of their minds (and of the angels of whom He spoke usually) have been thinking about the lively motion of the angels between males and the ways that the angels have conducted that venture from the moment of production in the course of the time of Jesus; and the way they are going to proceed their paintings even unto the top of time.
From the works of those early Fathers of the Church, the past due French Cardinal Jean Daniélou has drawn forth threads of information and knowledge which he has right here woven right into a lucid and vibrant tapestry that indicates us who the ministering angels rather are, and how—in each quick and in each way—they are operating in your salvation and mine.
Here you’ll locate no sentimental cherubs: the Fathers knew that majesty and tool cloak real angels, that's why God gave them the bold projects of shepherding not just souls, yet complete international locations, and the motions of the total fabric universe itself.
Open those pages to satisfy the fantastic angels as they have been recognized through the Church’s maximum saints and theologians: Origen and Eusebius, and Sts. Basil, Ambrose, Methodius, Gregory of Nyssa, Clement of Alexandria, and John Chrysostom (among others).
Soon you, too, will end up on well-known phrases with the angels, and they’ll start to play on your existence the bigger position that God intends them to play.
