Hi, guys —

  • What does it mean when seven angels visit you, and your spouse can see them, but you can't?
  • Why can't I see them when I believe they exist?

I have family that are Baptist and had family that were Seventh Day Adventist and I do not feel comfortable asking them, for they might not know the answer and I don't always know when I've received a correct answer and if it has been " heaven sent" or not.

I'm grateful for your help and hope to hear from y'all soon.

Hi, Christie —

Thanks for the question.

First, I admire your faith and wish more of my fellow Catholics in the pew had a conscience, realistic knowledge of both the good, holy angels and bad, demonic angels.

You said:

  • What does it mean when seven angels visit you, and your spouse can see them, but you can't?
  • Why can't I see them when I believe they exist?

The answer to your question is a mystery we will never know for sure in this earthly life.

One reason, in particular, that the Lord may have allowed your spouse to see them is for a special reason or special good for him — in order to increase his faith over time.

Nevertheless, we have to remember, what you are calling seven angels, may, in disguise,
be seven demons.

For this reason, regular prayer is always key. It will assist in the discernment of angelic and demonic spirits.

By the fruits of your husbands reaction to them, you should be able to better discern which side they were on.

Hope this helps,
