About Today Readings

Ss Michael, Gabriel & Raphael

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord – Psalm 137(138):1-5. John 1:47-51.

God’s angels amid us

A few years ago, a 9-year-old died of cancer. She and her family were actually at peace with her journey and death. She was convinced the angels were about her and that they would be with her with God in heaven – what trust, faith and love. Her knowledge of the angels gave her family strength and peace; ascending and descending, God’s angels were present.

How extraordinary that Daniel prophesied Jesus’ presence amid us – a man for all people, nations and languages – and how fortunate are we that Jesus was recognised by the people of his time. His presence for all enabled courage and solace for a family who trusted him as son of man, son of God. A belief and faith that has traversed millennia and generations.
