The Virtues of Heaven
These most gracious creatures of light have been tasked with the extraordinary duty of dispensing grace unto the entire Universe. Filling the hearts of men with such charitable inclination as to inspire them to works of love and beauty. Thus, receiving and shedding forth the Divine Grace, dispensed in due honor by the Fount of Grace Herself, they steward the growth of virtue in man’s heart, as to the greater glory of God’s Kingdom, The Church.
These celestial stewards are not simply tasked with the cultivation of man’s virtue, but are also responsible for the care and maintenance of the entire physical Universe. For this reason they are often associated with the Four Elements, a symbol of the building blocks of all material existence.
