O passing angel, speed me with a song, a melody of heaven to reach my heart and rouse me to the race and make me strong.
- Christina Georgina Rossetti
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.
