304 - The Subtle Bodies of Angels

Many of the Church Fathers talk about the notion that angels have what we call "subtle bodies", that angels are not completely incorporeal (God only is completely incorporeal) but their bodies are also not circumscribed in flesh, but in mind.

In this formerly patron video, I explain what the Church means with this description of angels and how it's something we can relate to in the general human experience.
