    Archive .Org ^ | 1899 | Rev. Francis Spirago Professor of Theology
    PART I - FAITH. THE APOSTLES' CREED. FIRST ARTICLE OF THE CREED: "I BELIEVE IN GOD, THE FATHER ALMIGHTY." 8. THE ANGELS. 1. The angels are pure spirits. They can, however, take a visible form. The angels are pure spirits without bodies, whereas men have both body and spirit. Yet the angels can take to themselves a bodily form, as did St. Raphael (Tob. v. 18), when he undertook to accompany the young Tobias on his journey. At the sepulchre of Our Lord, after the resurrection, the angels appeared in the form of young men, and the same was...

    n artist has created a sketch of the mysterious "angel priest" who witnesses say appeared at the scene of a Missouri car accident Sunday, anointed and prayed with the teenage victim and then vanished without a trace. Fox4KC reports Tucson-based artist Randall Sands created the sketch using online face sketch software at facesid.com based on media reports, hoping someone would be able to identify the cleric. Officials are still scratching their heads over the priest, who they say appeared out of nowhere. Perhaps more mysteriously, the local fire chief said he does not appear in any of 80 photos from...

    Youtube comment - "Merci Cure of Ars Saint John Marie Vianney, feast Day 8/4. Deo Gratias." Paraphrasing: The diocese of the city of Missouri has not located the priest involved, and out of repect for any priest who may have been involved who does not wish to come forward, the diocese has decided it will not investigate this incident. The diocese would like to say it's grateful that a priest was able to excercise his ministry in this manner and requests prayers for the healing of the victim and prayers of thanks.

    A small Missouri town is looking for a man not suspected of a crime but, rather, a miracle. “I think that this time I’ve actually witnessed a guardian angel at work,” Jeremiah See of the New London Fire Department told ABC News. An unidentified allegedly drunken driver hit Katie Lentz, of Quincy, Mo., head on Aug. 4 while traveling on Route 19 near Center, Mo., pinning the 19-year-old in the front seat of her convertible. With her vital signs failing fast, she asked rescue crews to pray with her. That’s when first responders say a man who looked like a...

    FULL TITLE: Was the angel of Highway 19 the saint Padre Pio? Catholics suggest that the priest who's been dead for 45 years appeared at crash scene to bless and save life of teen victim Five days on, the identity of the guardian angel priest of Missouri's Highway 19 remains as mysterious as his appearance on the roadside was miraculous. Friends and family of Katie Lentz, along with rescue workers still want to thank the unidentified man whose prayers they credit with bestowing a supernatural calm as EMT's battled to cut the Illinois teen from her mangled car wreck.

    via YouTube A traffic accident and subsequent rescue mission in Missouri is getting international attention this week, not because the emergency crew was successful in saving a woman's life -- but because a mysterious priest allegedly appeared seemingly out of nowhere to calmly offer a prayer. And then he disappeared. The New London Fire Department is calling it the "Highway 19 Miracle." The case of this "mysterious priest" is already going viral, with USA Today referencing the appearance of an "angel" and the Daily Mail referring to the "riddle of the angel priest." "God's Country?" says the New York...

    In last night’s Athletics-Indians game, the A’s trailed by one run with two outs in the ninth inning. Up came shortstop Adam Rosales to face Indians closer Chris Perez. On a 1-1 pitch, Rosales blasted a 93 mile per hour fastball to left center field for a game tying home run. Only the umps didn’t see it that way. They ruled the ball had hit the outfield wall, giving Rosales a double. After a brief protest from A’s manager Bob Melvin, the umpire crew headed for the replay room to make sure of their call. Replays definitively showed the ball...

    In 1943, two Hollywood movies were made about the heroic nurses of the Philippines, “Cry ‘Havoc’ ” and “So Proudly We Hail,” but the real-life Angels of Bataan and Corregidor were almost forgotten after they were interned. The letters they wrote to their families in America never arrived and were found after the war in a Manila warehouse. Mrs. Manning later said that the prison camp had no showers, beds or kitchens. A single toilet was used by hundreds of people. Yet somehow she and the nurses persevered. They maintained strict military order among themselves, always wearing their uniforms and...

    A golden retriever called Angel is being hailed a hero after it stopped a mountain lion from attacking an 11-year-old boy. The 18-month-old dog stepped between the big cat and the youngster during a dramatic encounter in western Canada. Police, who later shot the cougar dead, credited Angel for saving Austin Forman's life. He had gone to retrieve some firewood outside his family's home in Boston Bar, about 150 miles north-east of Vancouver. That's when the mountain lion charged across the yard at the boy. 'I was really scared. At first, I didn't know it was a cougar. I thought...

Teresa McCoy, 37, was just about to finish the bike portion of the Meek and Mighty Triathlon, part of the annual St. Anthony's Triathlon events, when she saw two police officers huddled over a fellow rider along Bayshore Drive. McCoy recognized the middle-aged man as runner No. 100. The two had chatted briefly before the start of the race. McCoy, a nurse at Tampa General Hospital's cardiac lab, was No. 96.

    Sen. Harry Reid and Sharron Angle are locked in a dead heat, says a new poll for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and KLAS-TV, Channel 8 that shows the GOP challenger regaining ground after going on the offensive with a TV ad blaming Reid for Nevada's deep economic troubles. The high-profile contest with implications for President Barack Obama's agenda promises to be a bare-knuckled fight to the finish as voters decide between Reid's promise that the recovery is coming under Democrats and Angle's call for a new conservative fiscal direction, analysts said. "This race is always going to be close," said...

If you bother looking here, you will see that the Poll surveyed 43% Dems, 40% Repubs, and 17% Indies, in a state that Dems indeed have an 8-percantge point advantage in total voter registration, yet this advantage gets cut by more than half if you count only the so-called active voters as of June 2010.

    Senator Christopher Dodd's massive financial regulatory reform bill is back and it's even uglier than before for startup companies trying to raise seed capital. Ugly for startups? A bill that means to address "too big to fail" and systemic risk to the financial system? Yes. And we're not talking about some indirect, attenuated, downstream effect from new regulation of big banks or Wall Street investment firms. The bill directly targets the way startups raise capital. This "reform" occupies only a few pages in Sen. Dodd's massive bill, at Section 926, entitled "Authority of State Regulators Over Regulation D Offerings" (pages...

Stars and other religious emblems were ordered removed from Christmas trees in all government buildings in Sonoma County on Monday following a complaint by Irv Sutley, a disabled 65-year-old Marine veteran who said the symbols were "extremely offensive" and part of the "cult" of Christianity. Sutley said he filed the complaint with acting County Administrator Chris Thomas on Dec. 18 after noticing an angel atop a six-foot tree...

    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - A single laptop can reveal much, and so it is with the digital treasure chest that Colombian commandos found in the jungle quarters of slain rebel leader Raul Reyes. Files in the computer seized in Saturday's raid into Ecuador that claimed the lives of Reyes and 23 of his comrades offer an intimate portrait of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's desire to undermine Colombia's U.S.-allied government. If authentic, the documents show that sympathies Chavez first aired publicly in January grew out of a relationship that dates back more than a decade. But Chavez is not one of...

It was malice in wonderland at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday as Bush Administration envoys insisted things are getting better in Afghanistan, while angry lawmakers from both parties cited facts and figures showing just the opposite. Even the senior Republican on the panel, Senator Richard Lugar, found the Administration's claims wanting. "I'm not sure that we have a plan for Afghanistan," he said. Long seen as the "forgotten war" eclipsed by Iraq in U.S. priorities, Afghanistan is in the Washington spotlight this week with the release of three independent reports concluding...

    The Vatican picture with the ‘angel’ clearly visible FORMER policeman Andy Key has his very own guardian angel. He also has the photograph to prove it. During a visit to the Vatican City he snapped some pictures as the Pope spoke to the crowds. It was only when he returned home to March and processed the pictures on his laptop that he saw what looked like an angel in one of them. "I just snapped away because it was heaving with people," he said. "I didn't see anything but when I looked at the picture it looks just like...

    A retired Air Force officer who now spends his days authoring books on Christianity has posted an online collection of recordings he believes captures voices and music of God's angels in heaven. Angelic statue in Lommel, Belgium (photo: Jan Schiphorst, used with permission) "I have four specific recordings of angels singing in church settings," Jim Bramlett of Lake Mary, Fla., told WND. "It happened supernaturally. There's no other explanation. It's either from God or from the devil, and I don't think the devil is in the business of worshipping Jesus. That is not in his job description." Bramlett, 76, collected...
  • The Archangel Raphael

    The Archangel Raphael by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. We shall concentrate on this meditation on one book of the Old Testament, the book of Tobias, also called the Book of Tobit. Unfortunately as we know, this book is missing in both the Jewish and the Protestant Old Testaments. Jews, after Christianity was established, dropped this book because it was not originally written in Hebrew. And the Protestants dropped the same book saying, “Who better than the Jews know what belongs in the Old Testament.” It is however, one of the inspired writings of the Catholic Church. We will take...
  • God Created the Angels as Individual, Immortal Spirits with Intelligence and Free Will

    At the Beginning of Time, God Created the Angels as Individual, Immortal Spirits with Intelligence and Free Will by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. Before we say anything else, I think we should ask ourselves: Why have twelve teleconferences on the angels and demons? This is no idle question because for many people angels and demons are figments of a pious or frightened imagination. In the Anglo-Saxon world, we are so preoccupied with the material world that surrounds us, that we have practically come to identify reality with matter. A standard dictionary definition tells the readers that “matter” is “to...

  • The Three Flames of Divine Love (Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael)

    Spirit and Life ^ | 9/29/2006 | Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer
    The Three Flames of Divine LoveEvery year on the 29th of September the Church commemorates the three angels whose names have been revealed to us in Scripture for our consolation: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. There is a fourth angel whose name is also revealed, Lucifer, but for a different reason: to warn us clearly about all his works and empty promises. When God unmasks the identity of angelic beings in the public revelation of the Church it is because He wants us to know something about them that will assist us on the road to Heaven—or give us sufficient warning....

    American TFP ^ | unknown | Plinio Corręa de Oliveira
    Is the Guardian Angel Less Intelligent than the Demon? by Plinio Corręa de OliveiraThe Church teaches that God created angels vastly superior to man. Pure spirits possessing a most lucid intelligence and great power, they surpass by nature even the most gifted of men. As a consequence of their revolt, the fallen angels lost their virtue, but not their intelligence or power. In accord with His Divine Providence, God restrains their activity. However, they remain far superior to man, by nature. Accordingly, the Church always approved artists’ depictions of the demon as an intelligent, shrewd, astute and powerful being, although...
