EWTN Catholic Q&A
Were angels created before the universe?
Question from Anonymous on 11-02-2013:

Did God create the angels before the universe or the universe before the angels?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 11-02-2013:

Dear Anon,

The angels are messengers of God to man. It would seem then that the angels were created a the same time as the universe, which is the habitation of man.
