The Angelus - Angels: The Messengers of God

Angels seem to live in horizons foreign to us, so foreign that we can only babble two words about them, make an act of faith, and soon forget about them. Although not accurate, this can hardly satisfy your legitimate curiosity to delve into the angelic state.

Excerpt from the publisher:

And so, at first glance, it may seem incongruous and obsolete to focus on the abstract question of angels. We believe in angels and in their activity among men, but this remains most likely an academic topic with little to no impact on our day to day struggles in this finite world of ours. Is this to say that angels have no history and are disinterested with our lot? Anyone who has been involved with souls knows that the struggle is between good and evil: The good influences led by our good God and His angels and the bad ones, led by the devil and his allies within and without. Any priest will tell you that he feels like an exorcist as he puts on the confessional stole or administers the sacraments, climbs up the altar and defends Catholic principles throughout his day to day pastoral problems."
