On the Mysterious Edge: Understanding Angels with Msgr. Brian Bransfield and Matt Lozano
Do you ever think about angels or just wonder about divine mysteries?
In this fascinating episode, we hear from Msgr. Brian Bransfield, auxiliary
Bishop in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and author of Angels: Our
Guardians in Spiritual Battle, which he describes as “a user-friendly, easy to
read map” that can help us see where the angels lead us.
Msgr. Bransfield tells of first meeting angels as a child and continues with an
exploration of the role angels play in our lives, their power, and what their
invisibility suggests to us.
We learn what angels aren’t - ghosts, phantoms, fiction - and what they are
- real, personal beings, created by God who are present to assist us.
“The holy angels always begin something in us and they beckon us farther and
they serve as our guardian,” states Msgr. Bransfield. He lists the three
common misconceptions regarding angels and how misguided expectations
can place a burden upon us.
Jesus was ministered to by angels when he hit rock bottom and we can be
sure that God has given us these special helpers as well to challenge, coach,
protect and help us to follow the light of Jesus.
Don’t wing it in your assumptions about angels. Listen and understand the
the reality of these unseen beings.
