Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Iron-Man

"Let no man seduce you, willing in humility and religion of angels, walking in the things which he has not seen, in vain puffed up by the sense of his flesh:"
Letter of Paul to the Colossians (2:19)

Today is the Feast of the Archangels: St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael. Although the Church has great respect and belief in angels, we also don't believe some things that others do. One such thing is that when we die, we all turn into angels. NOT TRUE. SO NOT TRUE!

Nonetheless, that doesn't keep the bumper sticker, wall poster, screen-saver and cheesy preaching businesses from stating otherwise. Interestingly enough, lots of celebrities become angels. So on this feast of the BIG 3, I present some of our latter day angels.
Tupac Angel: Residing in Ghetto Heaven (or not)
Michael Jackson Angel: Moonwalking all over the devil. CHAMON!
Heath Ledger Angel (on either Mount Zion or Mount Brokeback)

Pavarotti Angel: Looks like Heaven agrees with him. Slimming down!
Kim Kardashian Angel: Still alive. And dang, girl, you got some big wings back there.

Iron Man Angel: Fake and not dead, with iron wings, carrying the guy from Coldplay's half naked wife. I hope this isn't from Iron Man 3.
