"The world of pure spirits"
“GOD’s universal providence works through secondary causes. . . . The world of pure spirits stretches between Divine Nature and the world of human beings; because Divine Wisdom has ordained that the higher should look after the lower, angels execute the divine plan for human salvation: they our guardians, who free us when hindered and help to bring us home.” ~St. Thomas Aquinas: Commentary on the Sentences, 2, 11, 1, 1.
