How come the angel wanted to hold her?

Meaning

Angels are also known to be lovely ‘angelic’ so he is saying Fatima’s beauty was ethereal, since the angels wanted to hold her.

Another play on words, as we often associated angels with the afterlife and death, therefore angels wanted to take her, she belonged in heaven.
