(Medium Mrs. Costel)

Pure spirits are those who have achieved the highest degree of perfection, worthy of appearing before God. Their infinite splendor does not preclude them from being useful to God’s creation. The functions assigned to them correspond to the extension of their faculties. They are the ministers of God, under God, they govern the countless worlds; from above they guide spirits and humans, linked between one another by a boundless love, whose devotion is extended upon all creatures that they attract to become worthy of the supreme happiness. God radiates over them, transmitting His orders. They see His light and it does not blind them.

Their form is ethereal and there is nothing tangible left in them. They speak among superior spirits, to whom they share their knowledge and become infallible. In these ranks the guardian angels are chosen, who kindly lower their gaze upon mortals, entrusting them to the loving care of the superior spirits. These agents choose the course of direction for second order spirits. The pure spirits are equal, and that could not be different since only those who have achieved the highest degree of perfection belong to that category. There is equality but not uniformity, for God did not want any point of His works to be identical. The pure spirits keep their personality that has only acquired the most complete perfection, in a sense, since its starting. We are not allowed to give more details about that supreme world.
