The Archangels Discuss Drugs and Alcohol
I had a great question from one of my readers asking how the Archangels felt about drug and alcohol abuse, so I asked them. Below is their response.

There are many tragedies in the world, but it is especially tragic when someone makes choices that abuse the body and mind, that can lead to health issues and death.
