By Eric Morales     Dec 22, 2013 in World
Rome - Angelologist Father Lavotori says that the heavenly beings do exist, however he is risking ire by challenging the perception of what angels look like.
An official with the Catholic church says that angels do exist however they do not have wings as popularly believed. Father Renzo Lavatori says the angelic beings are back in vogue thanks to many new age religions, however he says instead of wings the beings are more like shards of light, and do not resemble cherubs.
"You do not see angels so much as feel their presence," Father Lavatori said at a conference on angels in Rome. "They are a bit like sunlight that refracts on you through a crystal vase."
This week Father Renzo Lavatori was taking part in a debate on angelic art at the Vatican owned Palazzo della Cancelleria. The catholic priest was dismissive of how angels are depicted, especially at Christmas time.
"There is space for that, but you have to understand that these are not real representations. Angels do not have wings or look like cherubs," he said.
Father Renzo Lavatori is a widely published clergyman in the Catholic church he is also deeply involved in the research of demons. Father Lavatori says that due to today's society ills demons are becoming more prevalent in peoples lives.
"There is a lot more interference from diabolical forces. That is why you see queues of people outside the exorcists' offices in churches," he said. "Pope Francis talks more about the devil than about angels and I think rightly so. But it's still early, he will get round to the angels too."
