Angels and Redemption AND Guardian Angels or Warrior Angels?

Angels and Redemption

 

During our RCIA meeting yesterday, something came up that I found extremely interesting concerning Angels and redemption.

 

The group leader mentioned that some of the Angels fell from Heaven and became evil. Now, Angels are closer to God than humans, but who did God grant redemption to? Humans. He loves humanity even more than the Angels who fell. Those Angels have never been forgiven, yet humanity, after having been ejected from the Garden of Eden, was forgiven.

 

I had never thought about it that way before. I knew that Angels are closer to God--there's even a passage saying that when Jesus was incarnated as human, he was then lesser than an Angel. But I never thought about God favoring humankind with forgiveness.

 

Guardian Angels or Warrior Angels?

 

It's funny, but the above happened right after I had spent an evening highlighting everything I could find about Angels in the Bible. From what I found, they were mighty warriors who destroyed armies more often than they were simple messengers. In fact, wings were never mentioned, but almost always the Angel held a sword.

 

So do we really have personal Guardian Angels, or are they Warrior Angels who battle evil anywhere they find it, which may sometimes happen to be around spiritual humans, so we have misinterpreted their presence as protecting an individual person rather than humanity as a whole?

This is just me..i think we all have guardian angels and then others that help as needed in life..for different things..and your class just slays me Tess..like completely more opeen and mystical..totally different than my class was.  Anyway..there are leigons of angels and many different groups doing many different things as i get it..and i beleive i saw info on the site here to to reasearch further..when you have time..much love..Sarah

Hi Sarah,

If I had known just how mystical the Catholic religion is, it wouldn't have taken me 20 years to join it! LOL!

I'm having a lot of fun researching Angels. I've had a huge painting of one over our fireplace for over 20 years--long before I decided to become a Catholic.

You're right, there are legions of Angels that have different responsibilities from what I can tell so far from the Bible. I just feel sorry for my Guardian Angel--he's usually bored to death, punctuated by moments of sheer terror, I'm sure. LOL!

Love, Tess

LOL..Tess..Love you..Sarah
LOL me too....

There are both . . . everyone has a personal guardian angel, this is Catholic Teaching, as well as, something that was confirmed by many of the saints but by my most favorite Padre Pio who sent his guardian angel out to work with other people's guardian angels all the time to help them. 

 

Guardian angels can come in a variety of ways.

 

The warrior angels you mention are usually from the order of St. Michael, the Archangel. And they are absolutely warrior angels who hold the balance between good and evil in this realm. These are really astonishing angels to see or be in the presence of for an entirely different reason than the guardian angels or the other kinds.

 

Because there are other kinds of angels, too, that serve in a variety of functions.

 

When you are in the presence of St. Michael, you have a supreme reverence and a supreme realization of the power that God has given him to subdue evil, it's ominous but profound and not scary, but awe-inspiring.

 

When I used to see the Golden Angels, you would go into ecstasy just seeing them. And you felt absolute peace . . . total peace. It was a loving peace. 

 

With St. Michaels angels you feel the awesome splendor, as well, but there is a powerful element that is hard to describe. With the Golden Angels, these are beautiful, stunning, also powerful but in a different way . . . they ARE peace. The essence of God's peace, and when you look at them, you can't take your eyes off of them. 

 

But there are many other different kinds of angels, but I don't want to make it too complicated on the first answer.

 

Great question, Tess! 

 

Much Love,

Marilynn

Dear Marilynn,

 

Thanks for the info on Angels. I'm glad to hear that there are so many different kinds with different responsibilities.

I don't know why, but I'm suddenly obsessed with researching them and learning all I can about them. They've been an interest of mine for as far back as I can remember, but for some reason they're at the forefront of my attention lately. I'm sure the reason why will make itself clear eventually. If you know the answer before I do, will you tell me? LOL

 

Love, Tess

 

Thanks Marilynn..I know it is a huge subject..love, sarah
You're welcome. And I understand, Tess, I've had periods where I am very obsessed with the angels. There are quite a few good books on the subject. And we do have a cool channel on the Angels, too!

Much Love, MArilynn
Emanuel Swedenborg's books and The Book of Urantia give wonderful information about the angels. One of the things that comes out is that they are always trying very hard to communicate with us, but we are either not listening or are impervious to their messages, or rationalize them as meaningless fantasies. Maybe, just maybe, you are feeling this sensitivity to them because they have something important to tell you. Maybe it could be that something is coming up soon, like the Last Judgement, and we all have to have enough oil in our lamps, like the wise virgins. I don't know, but I think something like that is quite possible, or even probable.

Those are excellent books on the angels. Check them out here at:

I also pulled out two other books I thought you might find interesting last night. Let me go get them and give you their titles:

Thanks, John, for these really good suggestions.

 

Much Love, Marilynn
