The 9 Choirs Of Angels – The Archangels

The 9 Choirs Of Angels – The Archangels

THE 9 CHOIRS OF ANGELS


The Archangels:

The Archangels are entrusted with the most important missions to men. They are also given as Guardians to great personages such as the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops, Presidents, Prime Ministers or Kings of Countries as well as others or even lay men and women whom God gives special and important missions to carryout for the Church, for God’s glory. 

They protect the Church. The pious Abbe Bourdon says that we should invoke the seven Archangels to help us avoid the seven deadly sins and enrich us with the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost. These seven Archangels are the highest Princes of the heavenly court.

They protect the Church under the leadership of St. Michael and defend it against its enemies. Let us not forget them when praying for the triumph of the Church, that these celestial Spirits may safeguard its interests and watch over our Supreme Pontiff (especially in these difficult and trying times).

In a certain diocese, where the evil one sowed weeds among some, the Angels helped the Bishop in his effort to uproot the weeds (errors) among the clergy:


“The Angel of the diocese has risen from his throne… this Angel is a special Guardian of the Bishop. His scepter he has exchanged for a sword and one of the Cherubim has been sent to help him. Woe to those against whom the Angels raise their swords, but three times woe to those who are struck and wounded; the gates of Heaven will be closed to them. 

Our Lord said to His Apostles, “watch and pray”. Be on your guard against false prophets, that they do not lead so many into the kingdom of darkness. Pray without ceasing that God may strengthen the weak and raise them up, that He supports the faithful so they do not fall. The time of Great Tribulation has come for the Church” (Bl. Catherine Emmerich). 

For the Archangels was the lowest Choir before the heveanly battle, but was lifted very high after St. Michael led the good Angels to defeat the dragon, through the Precious Blood.


“…We beg Thee for Thy holy Church, the Pope, the Cardinals, Bishops, Clergy and non-Clergy who are under the shade of Thy Most Precious Blood, protection, peace and love so that through the intercession of all the Archangels of Heaven, we might conquer the Red Dragon. Amen.”

The Archangels help us to persevere in the true Faith and in all good works. To all who devotedly console and adore the Most Precious Blood till death, the Agonizing Jesus promised that they will be admitted to the heavenly ‘Armies and Choirs.’

Noble Archangels, we beg you to aid us always, that profiting by the Divine Blood, we may ever live in faith, hope and charity, and die as true children of our Holy Mother Church.

By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir Archangels, may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works, in order that we gain the glory of Paradise. Amen.

Scriptural references related to the nine Angelic Choirs.


“Which He wrought in Christ raising Him up from the dead and setting Him on His Right hand in the heavenly places. Above all Principality and Power and Virtue and Dominion and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also  in that which is to come.”
(Ephesians 1:20-21).


“For in Him were all things created in Heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether Thrones, or Dominations, or Principalities, or Powers. All Things were created by Him and in Him.”
(Col 1:16). 

Prophets Ezekiel and Isaiah described the Seraphim and Cherubim, above and we can distinguish between Archangels (Jude, verse 9) from the Choir of Angels in the Scriptures, whenever an Angel says: ‘I am one of the seven Angels who stand in God’s Presence.’
