Angel Encounters - True Stories Created by Stephen Wagner, Paranormal Phenomena Expert, "People from all over the world have reported encounters with mysterious beings that appear bringing important messages or lending much-needed assistance, then vanishing without a trace. Could they be angels? Guardian angels? Read these stories and decide for yourself."
Angel Focus: Archangels From the site: "All Archangels end with the "el" suffix. "El" meaning "in God" and the first half of the name meaning what each individual Angel specializes in. Archangels are able to be in many places at one time. You never have to feel that your "problem" isn't important enough to bother them with. That is what they're there for, to help you grow. The most popular Archangels are Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel who are depicted in the Christian Bible. There is a debate as to the name of the other Archangels. In the eighth century, the Christian Church became alarmed at the rampant adoration of Angels by the Christian community. For some unknown reason, in 745 A.D. under Pope Zachary, a Roman council ordered seven Angels removed from the ranks of the Church’s recognized Angels, two of them being Archangels Uriel and Raguel." Um. Better rethink asking Uriel for help.
