Angels are kept alive by God, Angels: Day 031

Angels are kept alive by GodA particularly poetic passage from Dionysius  the Areopagite tells us that the angels, and all other living beings, are alive only because they share in the self- existing Life of God. When we say that angels are immortal, we don’t mean that they are immortal by nature; we mean that God keeps them alive forever.Now let us sing the eternal life, from which comes the self-existing Life, and every life; and from which, to every single thing that shares in life, is … [Read more...]

Immortally mortal and mortally immortal, Angels: Day 030

Immortally mortal and mortally immortalBoth human beings and angels are mortal in a certain sense, says St. Gregory the Great. They can cease to be what they are now.

Angels are immortal by grace, not by nature, Angels: Day 028

Angels are immortal by grace, not by natureAttempting to define what an angel is, St. John of Damascus comes to some interesting conclusions. Since angels are created, they’re not naturally eternal. Like us, they have eternal life ahead of them only by the grace of God.An angel is an intelligent being, always in motion, with free will, bodiless, ministering to God, with an immortal nature obtained by grace.Its will is changeable or inconstant: for everything that is created is cha … [Read more...]
