Angels do not know about the pangs of death and hunger. Nor the cold of winter days, the way a crying child may know it. Angels are not sensitive to sins that weigh one down, a thing they see from far as all their world’s aflutter with Divine expressions of praise.

What gravitas would a person possess to make the angels bend that lofty disregard of human frailty: what love or greatness could a person’s state create to alter lines of straight ecstatic joy? It must be gravitas, concern, of something otherworldly but beyond angelic.
