That's fine. Important to make sure the basics are covered anyways.>Like I did a little reading on the gifts of the holy spirit as prospective class/archetype substitute.
Gee, that's a tough one. I'll have to think on that for a bit. Let me get back to you.>>55376981
Now, just as a side note, dmanation does not mean the traditonal view of hell. That's fanfiction from the great work of dante "inferno" but it is not canon. Damnation is existance devoid of God. It's a symbol of love, as it's God respecting the desire one shows by their acts that they don't desire to serve Him, and allowing that. It's complicated, but it's an act of love nonetheless.
anyways, back onto angels: they have various roles and positions, but we can divide their jobs into a few different categories:
with regard to God, their office is to praise, bless, adore, and respond with perfect obedience to the will of God.
toward Jesus Christ, their office is to serve Him, even as man, as declared by St. Paul, "let all the angels of God adore Him" (Hebrews 1:6).
among the angels themselves, the office of the superior is to enlighten those who are lesser.
the angelic office towards human beings includes both directly spiritual interests and those material needs which are related to our heavenly destiny. Moreover, the angels' guardianship is over the whole human race. Under this providence are included believers and unbelievers, including those who have not reached the use of reason and, in fact, have not yet been born.
Now that's the basics on angels. Now on the saints, that's a very broad topic, but a favorite of mine.
So let me ask you what type of saint you want to hear about, and I'll talk about one:
One who served God through actions, like fighting in a war? A conversion story? A martyr? A philosopher? A holy, but normal person? A saint known for a miracle?
Also, here's a nice church for you all. It's the one I go to on sundays
