The Wonder of it all

“When you are before the altar where Christ reposes, you ought no longer to think that you are amongst men; but believe that there are troops of angels and archangels standing by you, and trembling with respect before the sovereign Master of Heaven and earth. Therefore, when you are in church, be there in silence, fear, and veneration.”
- Saint John Chrysostom

Beautiful Holy card! I always try to remember the thousands of angels present at Mass. Sometimes I think that the sound of silence contains the voices of angels singing the praise of God.
