Can an angel be jealous of a man?

By Tom Quiner

Angels can be gripped by sin. After all Lucifer was cast out from heaven over the sin of pride.

That presents us with an interesting question. Can an angel be jealous of a man?

According to St. Maximillian Kolbe, the answer is maybe. Here is his provocative quote:

“If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.”

As the Lord Prayer says so simply, “Give us this day our Daily Bread.”

Do we understand how precious this Gift is?
