The importance of each word in Scripture

From St. Aquinas’ Catena Aurea (Pseud. Chrysostom) from yesterday’s gospel (“And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom”): “One angel was not sufficient to carry the poor man, but many come, that they may make a joyful band, each angel rejoicing to touch so great a burden. Gladly do they thus encumber themselves, that so they may bring men to the kingdom of heaven.”

Awesome stuff. Very cool how the Fathers look at EVERY word in scripture for meaning. In this case, why a plural of a word was used.
