The thought of an angel conjures up a variety of images in our minds. Yet, the thought of an angel can be so puzzling! A child intuitively grasps its meaning whereas an adult may often miss it. An angel is a messenger - any messenger - usually a messenger of Good News! We may call a nurse an 'angel of mercy.' Or, when we want to express confidence in God's care, we may pray, "Let your holy angel have charge over us." An angel may be liberating us thought or struggle, a melody in our hearts, a flesh and blood person, or even an 'angel of death.' An angel is a useful symbol, a figurative way of saying that the creator communicates with us in many ways.
How does God communicate with us?
How can I be 'an angel of mercy' to someone?
PRAYER: Grant me faith with which to see Thy Spirit, Lord, at work in me. - AMEN!
