What does an angel look like?

I have always been confused about angels…

A lot of people say that when their loved one dies, they become an angel…which is a beautiful thought.

But angels as described in the Bible seem to be another creature entirely. Their physical descriptions are not quite human - and any time an angel comes to visit a human on Earth, they lead with the phrase, “Do not be afraid.”

I do know that as messengers of God, I believe angels are all around us, working with and through the Holy Spirit.

And I’m a little glad I haven’t seen one - at least not the kind describe in revelations!

Mysterious God, you have messengers who work on your behalf and humans who do your work with the Holy Spirit. Help us to exist in peace and harmony together to do your will. Amen.
