"See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you that their angels in Heaven always see the Face of My Father, Who is in Heaven." —Matthew 18:10
Father Pascal Parente compiles in this little book nearly everything that is known with certainty about the angels. Drawing heavily from Tradition and Doctors and Fathers of the Church, Parente explains the angels' creation, intelligence, free will, language, powers, movements, number, and particular duties. He also relates the history of devotion to the holy angels and discloses such little-known facts as that there are guardian angels not only of individuals, but also of churches, dioceses, and nations!
In a world that is increasingly curious about spiritual beings and at the same time skeptical about the existence and power of those beings, The Angels: In Catholic Teaching and Tradition is a crucial tool for distinguishing the true from the false and the known from the unknown. It is a sure guide through the unseen and holy world of the angelic spirits—a book that truly instructs and inspires us to live in the presence of the Holy Angels!

The author breaks down all the different ranks of angels and their role in heaven and our day to day life, their origins, their matter and so much more. I didn;t think there could be so much information about angels! Very informative and interesting. A highly recommended book.
Well written, well documented, and entertaining all at once! I purchased it as a resource for a manuscript and ended up reading it for, not only information but enjoyment. Highly recommend!
The Angels: In Catholic Teaching and Tradition
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I couldn;t put it down. It's easy to read and very informative. I just bought another copy for a birthday gift for my son-in-law.
