CIC 334 In the meantime, the whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of angels.1

CIC 2636 The first Christian communities lived this form of fellowship intensely.2 Thus the Apostle Paul gives them a share in his ministry of preaching the Gospel3 but also intercedes for them.4 The intercession of Christians recognizes no boundaries: “for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions,” for persecutors, for the salvation of those who reject the Gospel.5
