Recently, there seem to be several growing Angelic trends in this modern and Material World. Perhaps they stem from yet another sign of reluctance to intervene on another’s behalf and the ever-growing fear of the unexpected:
Stan the Angel puts on pants before he answers a plea.
Cupid now carries “easy to conceal” multi-purpose darts.
The Herald Angels sing in a whisper so as to not draw attention or wake a neighbor.
And sadly, in most instances, the word “Hallelujah” is often abbreviated.
