Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard.  How then should we believe in Angels?

Our faith is not one in which we are limited by the five senses of most all human beings. We are afterall God’s children created in His likeness and image. Through our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ we have been awakened to new life with Him. We carry His truth in our hearts. While at this present time we may not physically see or hear the other wonders of God’s creation, His angels; we His faithful who strive for Holiness can sense their presence in our lives just as we know our Lord Himself is present.

We praise and thank You Heavenly Father for Your Holy angels whom You have sent to guide and protect us on our pilgrim journey back Home to You. May we all be reunited in Heaven; as we stand together with the angels and saints to sing Your praises forever, Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, pray for us…..

First reading
Daniel 7:9-10,13-14 ·
His robe was white as snow

As I watched:

Thrones were set in place
and one of great age took his seat.
His robe was white as snow,
the hair of his head as pure as wool.
His throne was a blaze of flames,
its wheels were a burning fire.
A stream of fire poured out,
issuing from his presence.
A thousand thousand waited on him,
ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.
A court was held
and the books were opened.

I gazed into the visions of the night.

And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven,
one like a son of man.
He came to the one of great age and was led into his presence.
On him was conferred sovereignty,
glory and kingship, and men of all peoples, nations and languages became his servants.
His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty
which shall never pass away, nor will his empire ever be destroyed.


Gospel
John 1:47-51
You will see heaven laid open, and the Son of Man

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There is an Israelite who deserves the name, incapable of deceit.’ ‘How do you know me?’ said Nathanael. ‘Before Philip came to call you,’ said Jesus ‘I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel.’ Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.’ And then he added ‘I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and, above the Son of Man, the angels of God ascending and descending.’
