7. Angels Surround the Christ Child and His Mother




Do you ever sense the presence of angels, even though you cannot actually perceive them? That may sound like a contradiction of terms, but people of faith may understand. The unseen world is real, even if we aren’t exactly aware of it all the time.

Maybe that’s why I am so struck by this 18th century nativity painting. The Virgin Mary holds her beautiful baby, embraced by glorious light and a bevy of lovely angelic beings.

If God were to draw back the curtain of earthly mortality, even for a moment, what more might even we be allowed to see?
