Archbishop Lefebvre reveals a hidden blindness and/or contrivance when he singles out 3 or 4 doctrines denied by Vatican II. A true analysis, rhetorical, logical and theological, will readily reveal the evolutionary essence of both spirit and letter of that evil council based on false sciences! The “science, falsely so-called” of 1 Timothy 6:20 and the operation of error - to believe lying because they did not love the truth! (2 Thess. 2:10). St. Paul and St. Pius X have warned members of the church today, but they have not heard nor heeded.
There remains so much more to be revealed concerning similarities and differences between the Angels and the Elements, both created on Day One of Creation Week and also playing significant roles in all that happened thereafter. But it is for teams of theologians, true sons of St. Thomas and the Church, to refute and replace the synthesis of all heresies with a new synthesis of all truths – restoring both reason and faith to their rightful places in the hierarchy of the sciences and of being.
Joan Carroll Cruz has much on the angels and music, including the voices of the angels, that is, their singing. Because they are completely spiritual beings – when they appear either in physical-material forms, such as bodies in appropriate clothing, as speaking and/or as singing, they are – of metaphysical necessity,“fabricating”, as St. Thomas puts it – those physical-material forms, from the inanimate elements or accidents of some original, substantial form. Wherefore, when the angels sound the trumpets or sound (speak) or sing in human-like voices or employ human breath (lung power) to sound a trumpet, they are necessarily “fabricating” these physical-material – quantitative, accidental forms from the elements– that is from the ultimate particles, atoms and molecules that constitute the ultimate material “stuff” of all corporeal things. When one considers the range of physical things – from the electric current (electrons) to atomic and molecular structures composing such common things as salt and sugar, one can form some notion of the range of power that any angel – from the highest to the lowest in the domain of the good and the wicked, that all angels have over the physical universe.
It is thus no surprise nor is it beyond the comprehension of reason – human reason. St. Paul’s Epistle to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 15: 38ff) is a key scriptural reference for this subject. In verse 39, St. Paul specifies the differences between not just the formal principles but also the material principles of men, of beasts, of birds, of fishes and then of celestial bodies (sun, moon, stars) and terrestrial, (men, beasts, birds and fishes).
Then he passes on to what may come closer to the substantial form when he specifies that one is the glory of the sun, another the glory of the moon, and another the glory of stars, and not only that, but “star differs from star in glory”, and each star has its own name. (1 Cor. 1:41 - and in the psalms.)
Now it is important to realize that here in verse 42 of 1 Cor. 1, St. Paul passes from the physical-material to the glorified spiritual of the resurrection; whereas I am trying to determine the limits of the merely - purely physical material. As St. Paul reminds us -- first there was and still is for the sciences, the merely natural…of the earth, earthly. (1 Cor 1:46)
