“Then we will need many prayers, many helpers, many good deeds, a great intercession from angels on the journey inside the spaces of the air. If when travelling in a foreign land a strange city we are in need of a guide, how much more necessary for us are guides and helpers to guide us past the invisible dignities and powers and world-rulers of this air, who are called persecutors and publicans and tax-collectors.”

(St John Chrysostom on the areal tollhouses faced after death)
