Here reigned indescribable order and activity; but below in the earthly Church, all was drowsy and negligent to a de­gree. And this was the more remarkable as it was the feast of the Angels who bear up to God with incredible swiftness every word pronounced carelessly and distractedly by the priest in the Holy Mass, and who repair all defects in the service offered to God.

They long for God’s commands, and the prayers of their clients render them still more zealous.

The good one is heavenly by nature and belongs to the lowest hierarchy; the evil one is not a devil, not yet in torments, though deprived of the vision of God.
