Angels watch

by Andrea Elizabeth

If heavenly-mindedness causes a certain detachment from earthly cares, I ask, in the midst of Dionysius the Areopagite’s Celestial Hierarchies, where does that leave earthly-goodliness? I would say, focus also on the children, ironically, because ‘their angels behold the face of the Father’. Lots of things are done for the sake of children, and I pray they are done with discernment and wisdom attained by proper, pure devotion to heavenly things.
