BASIC R.C. BELIEF
From THE SACRAMENTS by Rev. Connel, C.SS.R., page 15. "St. Stanislaus
Kostka received Holy Communion from an angel, and the same miraculous favor
was granted to St. Gerard Magella. Their existence is an article of faith,
supported by Holy Scripture and uninterrupted Christian tradition. Today
theology is restudying the whole question of angels and devils. Perhaps
scripture simply presuposses angels and devils as part of the biblical
milieu, rather than directly affirming their actual existence as part of
God's revelation. Nor does the existence of angels seem to be a part of the
strictly dogmatinc teaching of the Church."

angels...are absolutely sinless." Two pages earlier, it had stated that
Raphael, an angel, had deliberately lied (Tobit 5:4,5).
