Once I was a lector at an early morning Mass, kneeling, I saw a huge angel with praying hands, standing behind my Priest as he lifted up the chalice. I remember blinking and rubbing my eyes, looking up again at the altar, as my priest lifted up the Host to heaven, I saw a huge angel, this angel must of been at least fifteen feet tall, with praying hands over my Priest head, while the angel’s bodily figure was faded like smoke, the angels huge praying hands was visible.
After Mass, I informed my Priest of what I saw, when he lifted up the chalice and the Host. Father James told me, as if that was the norm, when Father James asked me, “Oh, you saw my angel also?” Father agreed that his angel was very tall, and told me, his Angels name is Raphael.
I was taken back by Father James response, when he spoke to me about his Angel as if it was the norm of his Angel who always celebrates Mass with him.
