“The prophet Daniel once saw an angel, and he was so terror-struck at his appearance, that he fell to the ground like one dead. If such an effect was produced on him by the sight of a single angel, whose errand was one of comfort and consolation, what will become of us, when so many hundreds of thousands of heavenly princes draw nigh to us [on Judgment Day] with wrathful countenances? St. Ephrem, speaking of this says: ‘The angels will stand there with a menacing demeanor, their eyes flashing with the sacred fire of just indignation, roused by the iniquities of mankind.’” (Fr. Martin von Cochem, The Four Last Things, p. 66.)
2 Peter 3:10- “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.”
