Angelic Doctor - Saint Thomas Aquinas


"A person is disposed to an act of choice by an angel ... in two ways: Sometimes, a man's understanding is enlightened by an angel to know what is good, but it is not instructed as to the reason why ... But sometimes he is instructed by angelic illumination, both that this act is good and as to the reason why it is good."

Saint Thomas Aquinas, the "Angelic Doctor"

Gotta love St. Thomas! Obviously, he was illuminated to share this information via an act of an angel to better help us in relation to how our amazing spiritual friends work in our lives.
