It is just like God’s angel-messengers who, though they are not necessarily seen, their message is delivered all the same.
Love is like this, too. We cannot see the love, so much as we feel it. This is what it means to live by faith. We trust that there is more to life than what we see with our eyes.
This is also like what we profess in the words of the Nicene Creed. God is the Master Creator of “all that is seen and unseen.”
As much as this Feast Day of St. Michael and All Angels is about the Archangel Michael and all of God’s messengers. It is also a day when we celebrate God’s ordering of all of creation, of “all that is seen and unseen.”
