The Powers

The PowersThe Powers, celestial emissaries embodying all lawful authority, both ecclesiastical and civil, constitute the second order of angels within the Choirs of Dominations, Powers, and Virtues. At the pinnacle of this celestial hierarchy, the Dominations oversee the delegation of tasks to be executed by the Virtues and Powers.

Functioning as warrior angels against malevolent spirits, the Powers stand as formidable defenders of the cosmos and humanity, earning the epithet of potentates. Entrusted with one of the most perilous responsibilities, they safeguard the delicate balance between heaven and earth. Positioned at the forefront of celestial warfare, the Powers serve as the primary line of defense, ensuring order and protection against the machinations of Satan. Their vigilant watch extends over the earthly realm, preventing its overthrow, while simultaneously overseeing the equitable distribution of power among humankind—an apt reflection of their name.

The Choir of Powers exercises authoritative direction over the lower celestial choirs, orchestrating the order of creation, as referenced in Mark 13:25, “and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.” Beyond this, they stand sentinel over the celestial byways that connect the two realms. As bearers of conscience and custodians of history, these warrior angels exhibit unwavering loyalty to God.

Distinguished by an intensity of power surpassing that of the Virtues, the Powers command respect even from the Devil himself. The Powers exercise particular vigilance over priests in their ministries. Priests under the guardianship of the Powers wield significant influence over souls, their work proving exceptionally fruitful. Assigned to priests who serve as confessors to devout souls, these angels guide them toward self-awareness and instill a fervent desire for spiritual perfection.
