Giving them a place in our spiritual life
April 30th 2011
Although they claim to be monotheistic, most Christians too have a whole pantheon, in a way; you will find it in their calendars, in all the male and female saints they turn to in their prayers and their worship. The custom of invoking spiritual entities to which various powers are attributed goes back a long way, and Christians have simply carried it on and extended it. Which clearly shows that, even for them, God is so inaccessible, they need to resort to intermediaries. But, instead of addressing saints, some of whom are legendary figures who never even existed, why do they not address the angelic hierarchies? They are mentioned in religious services, but Christians have not paid much attention to them. These angelic hierarchies are: angels, archangels, principalities, virtues, powers, dominions, thrones, cherubim and seraphim. They are very powerful entities, and it is important to get to know them, so that you can establish a relationship with them and receive their blessings.
