The Angels and The Saints

Angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him.

They guide us to do God's will.

They protect us.

They are God’s messengers. In the above picture, the Angel Gabriel visits the Virgin Mary with the message that she would bear a child, Jesus.

The Saints of our faith were and still are the men and women who loved God so very much. They dedicated their whole lives in whatever way was best for the use of the gifts they had been blessed with. Some would even lay down their lives for love God and the church. Many gave up their lives of wealth. They came from every walk of life, kings and queens, soldiers, scholars, workmen, housewives, children… The Saints are God’s examples for us and we can learn from the way they lived their lives.
