Today's Reflection: Expectation of Angels

Archangel Raphael

To evoke angels…we need only to live in quiet expectation of their presence

and attune ourselves to their heedings…

From time to time, angels conceive and bring about

serendipitous experiences and events in our lives

to remind us that we are continually in God’s care

and that we are part of a

divinely ordered universe.

from The Many Faces of Angels by Harvey Humann
