There are many angels, "hosts" of angels, doing uncountable acts for God in this world. God, we are taught, loves humankind and (St. Paul says) intends to save everyone. So I am sure angels are helping you now -- and I'm sure helping you learn about the Church. May God bless you.
Thank you so much Porter ODoran! I am sure of this as well! My husband asked me if I believed in angels and when I said yes he seemed shocked. Haha.
Angels are such a foreign concept to him. In his church no one ever speaks of them (much like how Mary is ignored), but when I was young, my mother raised me in the Catholic church so I seemed to maybe learn more about them. But I was so young. So I have a sense they are near but it's as if I have to relearn and rediscover "who" they are.
Thank you all for being so kind. It's hard to articulate my thoughts online sometimes.
I also have another silly question that will probably have the same reply. But do Saints also pray and guide non-Orthodox? A few nights ago, I prayed that if there was a Saint looking over my husband, that he would continue to guide him and intercede that his heart would be softened to the Orthodox faith and to Christianity in general.
