Roma Downey, who played the lead character in the long-running TV show "Touched by an Angel" has become, well, a kind of Earth-based angel.
As a messenger from God on the show largely filmed in Utah, Downey routinely brought hope and insight to various figures who had forgotten or abandoned their otherworldly beliefs.
Now, Downey hopes to spend the rest of her life in faith-based giving, according to a piece by Sally Quinn of The Washington Post.
"Through much time in prayer I have realized that I want to spend the second act of my life," Downey told Quinn over dinner last week, "doing projects that openly honor and glorify God."
That will include a DVD series about twins who learn their ABCs, numbers and Bible stories from visiting angels; a Bible app; and a 10-part, 10 hour-long series looking at the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
