by Rev. John A. Hardon, S.J.
Why a catechism on the angels? First, because there are demons who seduce human beings into sin.
When the time comes, we better be able to tell if what we are doing is being inspired by good angels or instigated by evil spirits. This little 25-page book by Fr. Hardon will show you how to determine one from the other in a clear and concise manner. And, second, because its timely to revisit our Catholic doctrine of faith on angels. Modern day preoccupation with human psychology and physiology is such as to almost exclude a whole dimension of reality deeply involved in the affairs of men. Even in non-Catholic circles, the complaint is justly made that "the angels have taken flight from Catholic schools of thought."
