The Divine Messenger

Derived from the Greek word angelos meaning "messenger,” an angel is an order of spiritual beings engaged in God’s service. In scripture, angels serve as messengers and perform divine tasks. According to the Bible, angels do not have material bodies, but in art they are usually depicted in human form with wings. This angel is the bearer of two messages: the Allies’ triumph in the Great War and the fallen Missouri sons.
