Angelic Discussion

Dear Catholic Exchange:

I facilitate an adult women's group twice a year, and they trust me to come up with a topic that will interest all of them. They are women over the age of 65. I am trying to put together six classes on angels and wonder if there is any way you can help me with some information. I have already started and have quite a bit of information, but there is never too much.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Carol A. Courtney

Dear Carol,

Peace in Christ!

You may want to begin with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, especially paragraphs 328-336. In your presentation, you should consider the proportion of the Profession of Faith section of the Catechism that is devoted to angels in addition to what is said about them.

For additional reading, you may want to check out Angels and Demons: What Do We Really Know About Them? by Peter J. Kreeft.
