The Angels of the Churches in the Revelation of St. John

Gregory the Dialogistby Pope St. Gregory the Dialogist of Rome
Because Holy Scripture is frequently accustomed to designate the preachers of the Church, by the name of ‘Angels’ because they announce the glory of the heavenly country, we can in this place understand ‘Angels’ to mean holy preachers. For this cause it is that John, in the Apocalypse, writing to the seven Churches, speaks to the Angels of the Churches, that is, to the preachers of the peoples.

(Morals 34.7[14], LF 31:629)
