Golden angels

Many years ago, at Christmas Midnight Mass, I was in a large church, singing in the choir.

As we stood together in the high organ loft, looking out across the church, I suddenly saw that the whole space in front of me was crowded with golden angels.

There were so many that the air was completely filled by their beating wings.

I watched this astonishing sight for a few timeless, unforgettable moments, until it faded away.

Now I believe that these angels are present, always and everywhere, even though we can’t usually see them.

Suddenly, a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven” (Luke 2:13-14; NIV).

Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles (Hebrews 12:1; NIV).
