The Catholic Teaching on the Angels
by Rev. Fr. Pascale Parente
"See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my father who is in heaven." -Matthew, 18:10
Father Pascal Parente compiles in this little book nearly everything that is known with certainty about the angels. Drawing heavily from Tradition and Doctors and Fathers of the Church, Parente explains the angels' creation, intelligence, free will, language, powers, movements, number and particular duties. He also relates the history of devotion to the holy angels and discloses the little-known fact that there are guardian angels, not only of individuals, but of churches, dioceses, and nations!
In a world that is increasingly curious about spiritual beings and at the same time skeptical about the existence and power of those beings, The Angels is a crucial tool for distinguishing the true from the false and the known from the unknown. It is a sure guide through the unseen and holy world of the angelic spirits-a book that truly instructs and inspires us to live in the presence of the Holy Angels!
