Gospel text (Jn 1,47-51): “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Here is a true child of Israel. There is no duplicity in him.” Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.” And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on 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 they: you speak to they directly, and that's it! ("Flat rate", no limits, no cost).
