|Angels treat The Blessed Mother
of his tent in the heat of the day.
Gen 18:2 He lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, three men stood in front of him.
When he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the
Gen 18:3 and said, "My lord, if I have found favor in your sight, do not pass by your
Gen 18:4 Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the
Gen 18:5 while I fetch a morsel of bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that
you may pass on--since you have come to your servant." So they said, "Do as you have
Think about what is happening here! This is 'Father Abraham', [Mt. 3:9; Lk 3:8; etc.], whom
God made a Covenant with. The Father of Israel. A man to be reckoned with in his own
right. He defeated The King of Elam, who, in turn, had defeated many other kings.
Notice that the Angels treat him like a 'servant'. The Angel addressed Father Abraham;
"Do as you have said."
Remember St. Peter in prison?
While it is true that the Angel frees him from prison, Peter is awakened and literally shoved
out the door!
Acts 12:6 On the very night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter, secured by
double chains, was sleeping between two soldiers, while outside the door guards kept
watch on the prison.
Acts 12:7 Suddenly the angel of the Lord stood by him and a light shone in the cell. He
tapped Peter on the side and awakened him, saying, "Get up quickly." The chains fell from
Acts 12:8 The angel said to him, "Put on your belt and your sandals." He did so. Then he
said to him, "Put on your cloak and follow me."
Acts 12:9 So he followed him out, not realizing that what was happening through the angel
was real; he thought he was seeing a vision.
Not so when the Angel Gabriel appears before The Blessed Mother!
He treats her with "Respect" and "Honor"
Luke 1:28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with
thee: blessed art thou among women. [DRB]
Even a lesser translation;
Luke 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured,
the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. [KJV]
My point is that since we were created less than the Angels [Psalm 8:4-5], and if the
Angels treat The Blessed Mother with "Respect" & "Honor"... "How much more should we?"
