Interesting Angel Facts

In my research of Angels... I have gathered many

interesting facts! I would like to share some with you.

An Angel is a supernatural being who mediates between

God and mortals. Angels are held to minister over all living

things in the natural world, and all things in the cosmos.

The term Angel comes from the Greek "angelos", which

means messenger. In Persian, "angaros" means courier.

In Hebrew, the term is "malakh", which means messenger.

The name refers to the Angel's primary duty--to shuttle

back and forth between realms, bringing human prayers

to Heaven and returning with God's answers.

They are responsible for the orbit of the planets through the
Heaven, as well as their place in the universe. These are the planets and
their Angel governors:

Saturn: Cassiel

Moon: Gabriel
