Angels & Saints

Zorochristianity teaches officially about five angels or messengers of Agathon, while recognising that there could be many more. We distinguish between divine angels and angel-saints.

Angel-saints

Zoroaster is the wise person who is the supreme teacher of the idea of Christ. He is the herald of the Christ to come. He can be compared in some ways to John the Baptist in the later tradition.

Jesus is the supreme incarnation of Christ in our eyes. He sees us as we truly are, in our fullness and in our imperfection, and treats us as fully worthy of his attention and care.

Saint George is the most worthy defender of Christ. He will fight to the death to defend the existence of Christ in the world.

Divine Angels

The Archangel Mithras leads us in the fight for the cause of The Good in the world, against what is Bad and Evil. Mithras is identified with the Archangel Michael in Judeo-christianity.

Angel Anhita embodies the unconditional care that is the natural impulse of Christ, and is a figure of purity and protection. Anhita (or Anahita) has similarities to the Virgin Mary as worshipped by Roman Catholics and others.

Christangelia

Sometimes we use the term Christangelia or Host of Angels of Christ to refer to these five angels which all point us to the divine Christos. The Christangelic Host can be thought of as the power that brings the Christ-child continually into existence. In this case Mithras and Anhita can be imagined as the parents of the Christ-child, Zoroaster as the leader of the Wise Men who come to him and St.George as the soldier who stands ready to defend him.
