Known as the "multi-winged ones", they are the models of perfect reverence. Before the intimacy of the consecration in the Sanctus we should invoke a unity with them and entering an acknowledgement we are before the throne of Calvary's summit to whom our kneels are bending.
- Ezekiel 1:11
Such were their faces. They each had two wings spreading out upward, each wing touching that of the creature on either side; and each had two other wings covering its body.
- Exodus 25:19
"Make one cherub at one end and one cherub at the other end; you shall make the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat at its two ends. 20"The cherubim shall have their wings spread upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings and facing one another; the faces of the cherubim are to be turned toward the mercy seat.
