“For everything I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for everything I have not seen.”

In this Theology on Tap talk, Jane Guenther shares simply and profoundly how the Church understands angels and demons. She uses scriptural evidence and revealed tradition to explain the spiritual realm. She also explores ways to combat the evil we contend with in our present culture while learning to rely on the help of angels and saints in this cosmic battle.

Jane first encourages us to know the tactics of the devil because “knowledge is power.”

“The power within you is greater than the power in the world” – 1 John 4:4

She shares the six signs of the devil coming from St. Ignatius of Loyola. She then speaks to the powers of the angels and their duties. “Angels have a way of assisting us in our spiritual journey… we under use [them]”

Jane Guenther is the Director of the Catholic Renewal Center for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. She has a Masters in Divinity and has taught various courses through the Paul VI Pontifical Institute on the Holy Spirit, Angels and Demons, and the Saints.”If we don’t seek to know the Holy Spirit or receive the gifts the Holy Spirit has to give each and every one of us, then the Church remains less than it could be.”
