Parabola 40:2 Summer 2015
Angels and Demons
Angels walk among us, the Bible tells us. And so do demons. Yet they often take unexpected forms and shapes. They may come to us as strangers, as sudden insights, or as great trials. As James Reho describes in this Summer 2015 issue of Parabola, some devils are not to be exorcised (instructions for exorcism are included in this issue) but must be endured until they yield insights that can come no other way. “If there had been any power in you, it would have sufficed had one of you come, but since the Lord hath made you weak, you attempt to terrify me by numbers,” said Saint Anthony to the devils that tormented him. “Angels are agents and co-workers with us human beings,” write priest Matthew Fox and biologist Rupert Sheldrake. They spark our intuition and inspire us—“they get us to move.” They shed light on us from a cosmic perspective, but not if we scrub them out of existence as we tend to do in our secularized, scientific culture.
