Description - Angels of Grace by Anselm Gruen
From the Angel of Love to the Angel of Quiet...fifty 'angels' - or virtues, or attitudes- to inspire and help is for a week, a month, a year, a lifetime. Angels in the Bible are messengers of God, images of God's presence. They show us that there is 'more' to our life, that it relates to something beyond ourselves. Here, each embodies an attitude that is a virtue, meaning, power and strength. Each is at once an inspiration corresponding to a deep desire and the spiritual travelling companion to give us the hope and confidence that can realise that desire. 'Angels', says the author, 'are here beside us, so thjat we are not here alone praying to God with our troubles. Angels tell us: God is near; you are bathed in God's healing and loving presence.' So, meet the Angel of Truthfulness, the Angel of Mercy, the Angel of Courage, the Angel of Gratitude, the Angel of Forgiveness, the Angel of Patience, the Angel of Freedom, and many others. They enable us to become fully what they are - and we in fact already are - manifestations of the grace of God. All are angels angels of Grace.
