depictions of Angels
I listened to a sermon by Fr Ripperger (FSSP) about how angels should always be depicted in a male form, though they don't have a gender. He brought up some good reasons for that. However do you think it's wrong for someone to have an image of a female looking angel if it was given by a friend, or to watch a movie where there's an angel but "she" is depicted as female? as long as they know it's just fictional. Any thoughts?
Is it really great art? Leave it be then, if it is.

I have a great Russian wood sculpture, and it looks quite feminine. I think in general they should be male, but bending the rule a little won't end the world, especially if it is tasteful, or in a proper context.
Angels are spirits, so they do not need a description.
