Working with the Seraphims
The Seraphim are the intellectual angels with a divine consciousness, who help you turn onyour self-awareness and brings in a deep spiritual comprehension of divine reality. Serapis Bay was one of the forty-nine Mighty Seraphims who came to Earth in the beginning of Creation. Forty-eight returned home to the Great Central Sun, but Serapis remained as a magnet to draw to each planet, as it was created, a Host of Seraphim for its development and growth.
Are Seraphims real? The only person recorded to have interfaced with Seraphims is St. Francis. St. Francis who was the founder of the Cordeliers and the Franciscans, was known as the Seraphic Father and Seraphic Saint. In 1224, St. Francis had received the stigmata, from the Serphims making him the first recorded person to bear the wounds of Christ’s Passion. A companion of Francis, Brother Leo had left us the first definite account of the phenomenon of stigmata.
While Francis was praying on the mountainside, he saw a Seraph with six fiery and shining wings descend from the height of heaven. And when in swift flight the Seraph had reached a spot in the air near Francis, there appeared between the wings the figure of a man crucified, with his hands and feet extended in the form of a cross and fastened to a cross. Two of the wings were lifted above his head, two were extended for flight and two covered his whole body.
When Francis saw this, he was overwhelmed and his heart was flooded with a mixture of joy and sorrow. He rejoiced because of the gracious way Christ looked upon him under the appearance of a Seraph, but the fact that he was fastened to a cross pierced his soul with a sword of compassionate sorrow (Luke 2:35).”
When the vision disappeared, Francis was left with a “marvelous ardor” in his heart. At the same time, there were “imprinted on his body markings that were no less marvelous.” These markings were the stigmata.
There is one thing to dwell on here. The Seraphs are those angels closest to God, burning with love as they bow before the most high God, shouting, “Holy, holy, holy!” Their fiery wings, as depicted here, suggest the flaming intensity of God’s love that Christ communicated to Francis, which in turn set Francis’ heart afire. The word seraphic is often used to describe Francis’ passionate style of relating to God and is often applied to the whole Franciscan Order, which is sometimes called the Seraphic Order.
