A trio of angels travels the earth inspiring people at crossroads in their lives to turn to God. Tess, a more experienced angel, assigns Monica and sometimes Andrew to a case in each episode, usually with an eye not only toward helping the person, but to drive home a lesson to the angel as well. This is the story of Touched By An Angel.
The people being assisted have no idea that their benefactors are angels, of course. When the person's issue has been dealt with, the angels reveal themselves in a halo of light and reassure their charges that God loves them.
In Season 3, Monica must try and break the cycle of violence that has plagued a family for years, help a child psychologist deal with the death of his daughter, and aid a troubled bride-to-be with serious trust issues.
Touched By An Angel continues in July on CBS Drama.
