Angels and Their Mission by Jean Danielou

By Jean Danielou

the reality approximately angels — based on the Fathers of the Church

From St. Augustine to John Henry Newman, the best one of the saints and males of God have lived on common phrases with the angels; and the Church has continually accorded them a truly huge position in her theology.

Recent theologians have dwelt on dry questions on 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 frequently) have been enthusiastic about the lively motion of the angels between males and the ways that the angels have conducted that project from the moment of construction throughout the time of Jesus; and the way they'll proceed their paintings even unto the tip of time.

From the works of those early Fathers of the Church, the overdue French Cardinal Jean Daniélou has drawn forth threads of data and knowledge which he has right here woven right into a lucid and shiny tapestry that indicates us who the ministering angels particularly are, and how—in each immediate and in each way—they are operating to your salvation and mine.

Here you’ll locate no sentimental cherubs: the Fathers knew that majesty and tool cloak real angels, that is why God gave them the ambitious initiatives of shepherding not just souls, yet whole countries, and the motions of the full fabric universe itself.

Open those pages to satisfy the wonderful angels as they have been recognized via 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 regularly occurring phrases with the angels, and they’ll start to play on your existence the bigger position that God intends them to play.
