The seven angels standing before God.

"I am Raphael," said one of the angels to Tobias, "one of the seven who stand before God."

"The duties of these angels, it is said somewhere, are to watch over the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, in order to obtain them, to communicate them to us and to make them bear fruit ... to subdue the seven demons who preside To the seven deadly sins, to make us practice the seven virtues necessary for salvation, that is, the three theological virtues and the four cardinal virtues. "

If so, can it not be said with truth that the special attribution of these angels is to apply, to distribute, to administer the divine Blood to souls?

Indeed, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are merited only by the seven effusions of the infinitely precious Blood of Jesus Christ, sin can be ruled, conquered, torn from a soul only by force drawn from that divine Blood ; And there is only the power emanating from the BLOOD of the immolated Lamb that can make us fit for the practice of virtues.

The famous Oratorian, Faber, further facilitates this conclusion by showing himself inclined to admit the pious belief developed in the following lines quoted by the eminent theologian:

"Each of the seven angels who stand before the throne of God is said to be committed to the guardianship of a sacrament: the Eucharist is assigned to St. Michael, Baptism to St. Gabriel, confirmation to St. Uriel, Penance to St. Judeus, Extreme Unction to St. Raphael, the Order to St. Sealtiel, and the Marriage to St. Barachiel. "

The sacraments being, in the words of Father Faber, the vases of the Precious Blood, we can therefore say that the seven angels who preside over the sacraments are, in truth, the guardians, the custodians, the ministers of the Precious Blood.

O holy angels, here is my soul: bathe it, submerge it, drown it in the waves of the Blood which has deserved us all grace, all protection, all help for time and for eternity; And obtain for me by the very BLOOD to which you owe your felicity, to collect very carefully in my soul all the drops offered to me in the graces of God and in the sacraments of the holy Church
So be it.

Upper angels and lower angels.

When the holy Scripture speaks of the angels, it is in thousands and hundreds of millions that it indicates their number. "A thousand thousand angels," said Daniel, "executed his orders, and a million were present before him." These expressions mean that the number of celestial spirits is incalculable.

It would be the confusion in heaven if this immense multitude were without order. But among the angels, as among men, there are various degrees, that is, angels who administer and angels who are administered. The higher angels, who stand nearer to God, communicate to the lower angels and the lights and commands they need to fulfill their special functions. - With what happiness and docility are the lower angels received these communications of the higher intelligences! With what charity, love, and zeal do the superior angels communicate their knowledge?

Why do we command and obey so well in heaven? - There is only one law: the divine will; Only one ambition: to fulfill it faithfully; Only one interest: to procure the glory of God.

Man commands and obeys more or less well or badly, according as he seeks more or less his glory or that of God; If he seeks his own glory, the inferior will become a footstool which the superior will tread; If he seeks above all the glory of God, the inferior will only be a respected and loved help, given by God for the common good. As for the inferior, if he seeks his glory, obedience will cause him to murmur incessantly, at least in the depths of his soul, the non-servant of the fallen angel; But if he considers his inferiority only in the order established by Divine Providence, he will understand that to obey man for God is to serve God, and that to serve God is to reign.

O holy angels, put divine charity-that is, the love of God and neighbor-in the hearts of those who govern and those who obey; And soon all will understand that the authority of man is nothing but the will of God manifested to man as it is to the angel-that is to say, His fellows. Help those who command, help those who obey, that one day we may all be at the foot of the throne of God the faithful servants of the Sovereign Lord of the earth and the heavens.

So be it.

Guardian Angel.

At the moment of its birth, every human creature receives an Angel to watch over it and help it to attain its eternal destinies; It is the Guardian Angel. Saint Bruno de Segni teaches that it is Saint Michael's duty to choose the Guardian Angel of each soul.

"Their angels," said our Lord, "see the face of my Father in heaven unceasingly." - And the psalmist sings: "God has commanded his angels to take care of you and keep you in All your ways, ... lest your foot strike against the stone. "

And it is in the presence of such an august witness that we do evil! ... At least, at the hour of sin, let us escape from the eyes of the Angel. Let us flee from the heavenly messenger !. ..

But where to go? ... because the Guardian Angel is always with us; It is always with us and night and day. As St. Augustine says. "His eyes are unceasingly fixed on us and on all our works."

O excessive goodness of God towards man!

O prodigality of the Precious Blood! A drop had sufficed to redeem the man; But Jesus wanted to create the right to be prodigal of excess of love towards his privileged creature ... and he poured his Blood to the last drop! ...

Only the God capable of manifesting his love thus could conceive the thought of entrusting to an Angel the soul so extraordinarily loved. And this Jesus, we would not love him in return! We would not bless the Blood who bought us a Guardian Angel ... a friend Angel! Ah! Yes, I love my Jesus! I bless him his generous Blood! But, my good Angel, my Angel friend, love, let us bless Jesus and His Blood together. Since you are mine, and I am yours by and for Jesus, ah! I implore you, to render efficacious, in my soul, the infinite merits of his redemptive Blood.

So be it.
