Dear Readers

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the eleventh quarterly edition of “The Angels. Messengers from a Loving God”. Thank you for your emails and letters. We are pleased you are becoming more acquainted with the nine choirs of angels.

Front cover of the Sept. 2012 issue

Angels are present during the Eucharist. The Power of the Mass is the sacrifice of sacrifices, because it is the sacrifice of God for us. There is no better activity we can do than to attend Holy Mass in the state of grace, and receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Through time and space, we connect with the original Last Supper. Each Mass is a re-creation of the original Mass and we receive many spiritual benefits that occur at the Holy Mass. Saint Gregory said “The angels surround and help the priest when he is celebrating Mass.”

Saint Faustina discovered in the Eucharist an unlimited source of supernatural powers She declared “All the good that is in me is due to the Holy Communion. I feel that this holy fire has transformed me completely, All my strength is in You, O Living Bread. It would be difficult for me to live through the day if I did not receive the Holy communion”(Diary 1392).

One day we will know what God is doing for us in each Mass, and what sort of gift He is preparing through it for us. “All the tongues of men and angels united could not find words adequate to describe this mystery of your love and mercy.”

Do not forget about the Feasts of Saint Michael, Gabriel and Raphael (29th September, 24th March, 24th October and the feast of Guardian Angels on 2nd October). On these days they will intercede for you in a special way.

I assure you of the constant prayer of the priests of the Congregation of St Michael the Archangel for all the readers and their families every day. I would kindly ask you to let others know about our magazine and distribute it all over the world. I would be interested to hear from you by letter or email and to relate any testimonies on how the angels have helped you in your life.

Let us call on our heavenly messengers daily and ask for help, protection and guidance.

God bless you.
