Around our pillows golden ladders rise, and up and down the skies, with winged sandals shod, the angels come, and go, the messengers of God!
- Richard Henry Stoddard
In the Bible, heavenly angels often
bring good news—it was an angel
that told Mary she would give birth
to Jesus and angels that heralded
his birth. It was an angel at the tomb
who told of Christ's resurrection.
guardian angels, cherubim and
seraphim—take many forms. They
can appear in dreams, be a voice you
suddenly hear speaking your name,
arrive as a patch of sun breaking
through the clouds, bringing comfort when
you need it most.
