imgsearchresultIn Genesis 28:10-22 Jacob had a dream where he saw a ladder from earth to Heaven and countless Angels ascending and descending to the Throne of God, taking our prayers and petitions from Almighty God.

 

 

I discovered this little pamphlet “The Angels” today! A tiny little pamphlet. I opened it to browse through it. Found this little definition that ‘Angels were created before human beings … that there was a test by God at one time, some passed and some failed … ‘. I decided to research more and so I Googled the word ‘Angels’ and found a brilliant description on EWTN’s website – (Chapter One of the book “The Angels,” by Pascal P. Parente) –

“A spirit world was produced, at once, in its fullness and in its grandeur.

When, at the word of the Almighty, light’s first rays lit up the primeval, shapeless world, still “wrapped in a mist as in swaddling clothes,” a wondrous song, a joyful melody filled the new heavens with never-ending strains.

The Lord recalls these primordial times when He asks: “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? . . . When the morning stars praised me together, and all the sons of God made joyful melody.”[1] These “sons of God,” living witnesses of the creation of the material universe, were our Angels, the morning stars of creation.

 

 

angel1 “Describing the throne of God surrounded by heavenly spirits, the prophet Daniel is at a loss in determining the number of those heavenly beings, our good Angels: “Thousands of thousands ministered to Him, and ten thousand times a hundred thousand stood before Him.”[16] Bible commentators tell us that the figures here given by Daniel do not express a definite number. They serve to convey the idea of a multitude that is far beyond the power of human language to express. More than figures, they are really hyperbolical expressions for an innumerable multitude of Angels standing around the throne of God.[17]”
