Hütter on the existence of angels

The "pervasive contemporary inability to consider angelsand, alas, very widespread among Christians pace the recent New-Age discovery of 'angels' as a quasi-personalistic transcendence at the expense of Goddisplays not only a disconcerting lack of theological imagination but metaphysical acumen as well."

Reinhard Hütter, "Aquinas on the natural desire for the vision of God:  a relecture of Summa contra Gentiles III, c. 25, après Henri de Lubac," The Thomist 73, no. 4 (October 2009):  528n18 (523-591).
