Guardian Angels

“See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and obey him. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority is within him.” (Ex 23: 20-21)
The Guardian Angels are our friends, protectors, guards, supporters and amazing gifts from God. They are always with us: when we sleep or work, when we travel or at home, and when we are alone or surrounded by a crowd. Their voices and advice sometimes are very subtle and delicate and sometimes very loud and strong. The more I am “attentive to him, and obey him,” the closer I am to God and “to the place He has prepared” for us.
“Angels of the Lord, bless the Lord, praise and exalt him above all for ever.” (Entrance Antiphon)
Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God’s love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide. Amen.
“From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their (the angels’) watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life. Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united to God.”
– from the Catechism of the Catholic Church; 336.
