From E. McK. @ US

May God continue to bless you.  Thank you for all of your assistance and clarification of issues that have a tendency to become cloudy.

This is not terribly urgent, it is just that I know you'll have an answer to a question I always have had.

How and why are the Archangels Gabriel, Michael and Raphael referred to also as saints?  I really understood saints to be human beings who submitted to God's will and were taken to heaven after their physical lives were ended.  Angels, and I say this with the utmost love and respect for them, were never human beings, although they have appeared to various individuals to be human. (I'm pretty certain I've had at least one of those experiences myself!)   Haven't the angels always been part of the spiritual plain?

Since God has moved me to finally ask this question after having wondered about it for years … some clarification would be received with great enthusiasm.

Thanks very much and again, may God continue to bless you … and us through you.

E. McK.

A. Thank your kind words of encouragement and for bringing up this issue so that we may be able to clarify it for all.

In the Roman Catholic Catechism - as published on-line by the Vatican - we read:

946 After confessing "the holy catholic Church," the Apostles' Creed adds "the communion of saints." In a certain sense this article is a further explanation of the preceding: "What is the Church if not the assembly of all the saints?" The communion of saints is the Church.

and

948 The term "communion of saints" therefore has two closely linked meanings: communion in holy things (sancta)" and "among holy persons (sancti).

and

956 The intercession of the saints. "Being more closely united to Christ, those who dwell in heaven fix the whole Church more firmly in holiness.... They do not cease to intercede with the Father for us, as they proffer the merits which they acquired on earth through the one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus.... So by their fraternal concern is our weakness greatly helped."

Now, with the official Vatican position quoted word by word, let us clear the smoke and shed some light on the matter.

What is read above is true except that is not limited to "Members Only". The communion of saints encompasses all of those who on Earth are members of Jesus' family as defined by Jesus Himself - the Ultimate Authority - ....

For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother. [Matthew 12:50]

....as well as those who are in Purgatory and those who are already in Heaven (both of which are obviously Family Members).

Now, "Saints", like Teresa de Jesus, is a "saint" whom the Roman Catholic Administration has officially designated as an exemplar figure. Therefore "all Saints are saints" but "not all saints are Saints" as defined by the Roman and Orthodox Catholic Church.

Therefore, generally speaking, pure spiritual creatures, as angels are, fall in the category of "the Family of Jesus", thus, we can joyfully refer to them as "saint" or "Saint".

As a matter of confirmation - angels do appear frequently in a rather "average" looking human countenance although one has "a feeling" that the individual is just not "the guy next door", a very real feeling that miguel de Portugal has experienced several times.


From Mr. P.B. @ US

As always praying for you - you are often in our thoughts. We are grateful for everything and you are truly a blessing from God.
 
I had a couple questions:
 
1) I ran across a web site that was saying that both Medjugorje and the Divine Mercy were both fake.  Their logic was that they represented Vatican 2.  But at the same time, that does not make sense because St. Faustina was from pre-Vatican 2.
 
2) is it is a sin to freeze someone's head when they die?
 
Yours in JMJ

P.B.

A. Thank your kind words of encouragement as well as your prayers.

Regarding the possibility of committing a sin when someone's head is frozen after his/her death - God has not given m de P specific information about that. However, if it is not a sin to offer and receive transplanted organs and donate one's body for medical research, I cannot see the freezing of the head of a deceased individual as a sin.... unless... the purpose of such procedure is rooted in doubts of the Word of God - our Lord Jesus Christ

Regarding the Second Vatican Council  - What have we not said about that already? Take a look at what we have published through This Link regarding that matter.

In those documents you should find our responses to those who blame the Second Vatican Council for all the atrocities committed by Rome for the last 1600 years.  Should you - or any of our readers - still have a question about this matter, do ask it and we will attempt to answer it in accordance to the Will of God.


Have you noticed....
that whenever unclean spirits see Jesus they would fall down before him and shout, "You are the Son of God." and invariably He would warn them sternly not to make it known?

Isn't it interesting that even the unclean spirits Glorified Jesus for what He Is - the Son of God - yet the Masters of the Temple, in spite of the number and type of miracles Jesus performed, had no idea Who He Was/Is?

The key to this apparent mystery is that on the other side of the veil everyone seems to have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear - even if it is too late for them to act on what they see and hear. On our side of the veil only those who have Eyes to See and Ears to Hear can recognize Jesus and those who serve Him. The perfect example of this was given to us by Simeon and Anna at the Temple - both of whom recognized Jesus for what He Was/Is - even as a baby.

When one sees the reaction of the Masters of the Temple of today - the Vatican - to the number and type of miracles God has worked through Mary during the last 200 years, one must conclude that absolutely nothing has changed, except that the situation is worse.

That is why we wait with baited breath for His Glorious return and the renewal the face of the Earth - the Final and Complete Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, because, if it had not been for Her no one would survive what is now at our doors.
