Are Angels also Saints? and can a man be an Angel when in heaven?

Answer:

The word “saint” comes from the Latin word “sanctus” which means “holy”. This word can be applied to the members of the Church in general to denote the sanctity of the universal Church. But mostly, those who have this attached to their names are those who are in heaven. Angels are called saints because they are holy and are in heaven.

As for men becoming angels later, it is not possible. Angels are created different than men. Even when one has been transformed their very nature is different from that of the Angels.

    “Even when one has been transformed their very nature is different from that of the Angels.” Can someone explain to me how these two immaterial things differ from each other; and how any immaterial thing can, in any way, affect the material natural world that we live in?

    In the New Testament, the Christians were called saints while they were still alive on earth. Has the Church changed its teaching?
