Invocation of Angels

Resource Toolbox

or the act of addressing prayers to angels, especially to the angel-guardian, prevails in the Roman and the Greek churches, as well as in all the different Eastern churches. They hold that angels are sharers of the divine nature, though in a somewhat subordinate measure. In the same manner they also permit the invocation of saints (q.v.) even, and designate this worship under the technical term of δουλεία , in distinction from the worship of God himself, which they term λατρεία. See Hagenbach, History of Doctrines, 1, 141, 142, 338 sq. (See ANGELS); (See VENERATION).
