Henry Brougham is a newly appointed Bishop and is having a difficult time raising funds for a new cathedral. His wife misses their old neighborhood in a poor part of town and he is stressed and preoccupied with his new duties. His prayers are answered when an angel, Dudley, suddenly appears in his study. Dudley tells him that he's there as his assistant and will be present until he is no longer needed. With all of his work, Brougham hasn't had much time for his wife, Julia, so Dudley keeps her company. Brougham is just a tad jealous. The main contributor to the cathedral fund, Mrs. Hamilton, has several conditions to be met before she transfers the funds and Bishop Brougham, to his dismay, is forced to compromise his principles in order to get the money. Dudley has his own way of getting her cooperation. As Christmas arrives, Dudley spins his charms ensuring a happy Christmas for everyone, particularly Julia and Henry.
