Many in need are blessed through the service of ward or family members or have felt the unseen influences that were sent to comfort them. All of these are errands of love. Blessings, Gar
"Indeed heaven never seems closer than when we see the love of God manifested in the kindness and devotion of people so good and so pure that angelic is the only word that comes to mind." â€”Jeffrey R. Holland, "The Ministry of Angels", Ensign, Nov2008, 30.
Angels of Love
"In the course of life all of us spend time in 'dark and dreary' places, wildernesses, circumstances of sorrow or fear or discouragement. Our present day is filled with global distress over financial crises, energy problems, terrorist attacks, and natural calamities. These translate into individual and family concerns not only about homes in which to live and food available to eat but also about the ultimate safety and well-being of our children and the latter-day prophecies about our planet.
More serious than theseâ€”and sometimes related to themâ€”are matters of ethical, moral, and spiritual decay seen in populations large and small, at home and abroad. But I testify that angels are still sent to help us, even as they were sent to help Adam and Eve, to help the prophets, and indeed to help the Savior of the world Himself.
Matthew records in his gospel that after Satan had tempted Christ in the wilderness 'angels came and ministered unto him.' (Matthew 4:11). Even the Son of God, a God Himself, had need for heavenly comfort during His sojourn in mortality. And so such ministrations will be to the righteous until the end of time."
