Feast of the Guardian Angels

Today is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. Each and every one of us has a guardian angel given to us by God at our birth. Each little child, each old person, and all the busy men and women in between, whether they believe or not, have their own guardian angel who looks on the very face of God.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 18,

See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

Padre Pio would send his guardian angel on errands of mercy to those in need. If you are worried about someone, ask your guardian angel to say a special prayer to Our Lord for them.

Paul tells us in Hebrews that,

And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
