Angel of Peace
October, 15, 2011 – I’m lying on a stone fence, my body stretched out in peaceful repose, the Portugese sun beating down on my face. I just said the rosary in front of a statue of the Angel of Peace and statues of Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, the three children of Fatima. Many may know of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima who appeared to these children in 1917, but many may not know that the year prior to this, the children were visited by the Angel of Peace in order to prepare them for the coming and greater understanding of the messages from the Virgin Mary.
The angel was described as “A light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, transparent and brighter than crystal, pierced by the rays of the sun.” The angel said, “Do not be afraid. I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” He knelt with his forehead to the ground and said, “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you. I ask pardon of you for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”
“When we seek to find peace among the chaos, we have stepped into the light of positive intention.”
The Angel of Peace is head of the band of angels known as the Legion of Peace.
The Angel of Peace was also one of the ministering angels who kept the vigil with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. He was one of the heavenly hosts sent by God to sustain Jesus after he had prayed, saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”
