How wonderful it must be to sing God’s praises in the company of the angelic hosts! By God’s grace, I too will one day sing in their company in heaven.

Angels of the Lord, you have been inspirations of humble service. Mighty deeds you have done manifesting God’s power. Intercede for us, protect us and heal us with your gifts so that we too may one day be worthy to stand in the presence of our loving Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, Lord of hosts have mercy on me a sinner. Make me worthy to be with You now and forever. Amen

Revelation 12:7–12ab

GOSPEL
John 1:47–51

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Here is a true child of Israel. There is no duplicity in him.” Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.” And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
