"ANGEL (Gr., ἄγγελος,
messenger). One of the heavenly spirits, creatures of God who are employed by
him as his messengers in the governance of the world. Angels are pure spirits,
i.e., they have nothing material about them and, unlike the human soul, they are
not associated with matter. They are persons. They have by nature an
intelligence more acute and a power greater than those of men. They watch over
either individual men (guardian angels) or societies of men, e.g.,
nations, the Church." (Catholic Dictionary)
the Catechism of St. John Neumann...
What is the occupation of the good angels?
They adore, love and serve God, and protect us.
Fallen angels, like Satan, are demons/devils (see
here for more information).
