Commentary on the Gospel of
Angels in Disguise
A friend of mine, depressed and suicidal following a break-up with his girlfriend, was walking along the streets of Los Angeles. Suddenly, a man approached him and said: “I know you are troubled. We do not know each other, but your name starts with D and the girl who broke up with you has the initials S. M. I am here just to tell you that whatever you are feeling right now, will get better. Focus on what is good in life, look to the future with hope, find your purpose in life.” Having said this, the man smiled and walked away. Until today, my friend has no idea who he was; but what he said lifted up his spirit and impelled him towards life. But wasn’t the stranger an angel in disguise? In manifold ways, God sends his angels to help us, protect us, guide us. When was the last time you called upon the angels?
