In case you wondered …

… What Anglicans get right about angels | (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

One of the silliest claims made by those who do not share my affection for them is that devotion to Michael and Gabriel, as with the Seven Dolours or poor neglected St Aloysius, smacks of grandmotherly piety. This is entirely true, and speaks very much in its favour. Heaven, one suspects, will be full of grandmothers, and angels keeping them company.
The older I get, the simpler my piety becomes.
