Gospel text (Jn 1,47-51): Truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man». When Jesus saw Nathanael coming, He said of him, «Here comes an Israelite, a true one; there is nothing false in him». Nathanael asked him, «How do you know me?». And Jesus said to him, «Before Philip called you, you were under the fig tree and I saw you». Nathanael answered, «Master, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!». But Jesus replied, «You believe because I said: ‘I saw you under the fig tree’. But you will see greater things than that. Truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man».

Today we have excellent news: Jesus did not come to the world alone. He came with many angels. Those purely spiritual beings helped on earth already (they have always helped us!, particularly Michael, Gabriel and Raphael). But since the conception of Holy Mary and the birth of Jesus their presence has grown and intensified. Where are they? Here! You do not see them? Ah, here's the good thing: they have no body, so they can have one "foot" in Heaven and the other on earth (even better: by your side, even into your heart).

"There are no people easier to contact than them: you speak to them directly, and that's it! ("Flat rate", no limits, no cost).
