Of Angels and Demons

Angels and Demons by Peter Kreeft

Just had to share this too:
Page 52
Question 23: If angels have no bodies, how can we ever see them?

Angels sometimes "assume" bodies, as we would put on a costume or hire a tuxedo or a limo.

At other times angels influence our imagination from within, like hypnosis or mental telepathy. Then it looks as if there is a body there but there isn't. In this case a camera would not record anything. It would in the first case, if they "assumed" bodies.

If you are ever visited by an angel and wonder whether it is objective or subjective, without or within, here is how to tell. Angels respect hospitality, so offer the angel some food. ...
I had to smile at that, assuming that the chances were great that I'd ever actually see an angel (in this life) and actually know it.
