256. Who Are the "Angels of the Little Ones'"?

The reference in Matt. 8:10 has caused discussion among divines in all periods of the Christian Church, and is by no means' satisfactorily explained. Jesus seems to have lifted for a moment the veil over the unseen state, and to have spoken of a matter familiar to him, but incomprehensible to us. The apparent meaning is that even the humblest followers of Christ are ministered to by angels, who have access to the presence of God himself.
