Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Dr. Mark Miravalle - Professor of Theology and Mariology at Franciscan University of Steubenville - teaches on the fascinating subject of Angels. Why did God create angels? How are they different from humans? Are guardian angels found in Scripture? Discover the answer to these questions and many more as Dr. Mark Miravalle explains the nine choirs of angels, their differing roles and hierarchical order, and how much angels can help us if we only ask.

 

I liked the very concise & detailed explanation of how the angel studies were done by the Church, the history of the angels, all the different types of angels & their duties (good & bad), the hierarchies, tying info to scripture & tradition, the importance of talking/praying to our guardian angel daily, invoking the angels, going to Adoration, etc. Everyone likes angels, but I didn't realize there was so much info, & how to join the good side to fight the fallen angels!

"If you think that the Church and Science are at odds, you have to listen to this CD." Ray - Peoria, IL
"Fr. Spitzer proves that science and faith can co-exist harmoniously." Aaron - Palm Bay, FL
"I am in such awe at the incredible mind of Fr. Spitzer. I need to listen to this more than once!" Julie - Sterling, VA
Clear, excellent explanations without the fluff. A reasoned approach. Jim - Mequon, WI
This talk was fantastic. I did not personally have questions regarding the faith in this area, but I love science and was curious as to how I could talk to atheists an in general get to know some of the proofs for God's existence. After the first three minutes of the talk, I had to pause it and exclaim to my mom in the car beside me, oh my gosh, there was a proof of God's existence right there in just a few, logical sentences. This talk is great not just for evangelizing others, but I think it's great for evoking even greater awe in how everything came to be through God its creator. Lucas - Aberdeen, SD
Fr. Spitzer's talk helped to increase my faith in the existence of God as I have often found myself easily challenged by certain scientists, including Stephen Hawking, who are essentially non-believers. His open discussion about the various aspects of physics and philosophy and the fact that they really aren't in conflict with religion has greatly reduced the confusion I have had when reading any material by a skeptic or atheist. By nature, I tend to be a skeptic and feel the need to explore something of major significance, such as the existence of God, with some scrutiny. In short, Fr. Spitzer's talk on this subject has given me peace of mind. Kevin - Keene, NH
even though there were a lot of words i didn,t know or under stand i still liked it for what i did get out of it. P.R. - valley center, CA
Fr. Robert Spitzer really inspired me to look further into the science behind the christian/catholic faith. As a person who grew up catholic and "lost the faith" at an early age (around 13 yrs old or so)I began to doubt EVERYTHING. I was definitely one of those people who believed that science and God could NEVER coexist. While I still struggle with some of the concepts and a natural doubt and reluctance to believe, I feel as if this lecture had really helped me understand the other side of the spectrum.
