How can angels be considered saints?

Always thought angels were angels and not saints – Archangel Michael and a few others have title of saint in recent readings – what is the teaching regarding such an honor.



Whoever is in heaven is a saint. Saints are in heaven; so angels are saints.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
