Tim has created a series of angels who represent various aspects of the mission of the angels to mankind. This is his depiction of an angel that spreads the hope of God to those who will accept it. St. Paul teaches that the three most significant Christian virtues are faith, hope, and love. Hope is trusting in God to save. It is trusting in God to strengthen. One who has the virtue of hope can overcome all fears of this world. Angels are all filled with hope. It is easier for angels to trust in God since they are in his presence. They help us to hope as a part of their mission.
