An angel is pure intelligence, but we limited intelligences try to cramp an angel into a semi-material being with wings.  The part of me closest to angelic is my spirit, my mind. We humans are evolving into a new dimension when our spirits will become more “who we are” than our bodies can ever explain “who we are.”  At that future time we humans will be more than ever “a little less than the angels” (Psalm 8).  And in our personal futures in the after-life

we will be like the angels in heaven who “always look upon the face of [the] heavenly Father” (Mt. 18).        (credit for this post goes to Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider, SND)
