Heavenly Angels

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.

Heavenly angels—archangels,
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.
