“Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
who sent His angel to deliver the servants who trusted in Him” (Dn 3:28).
His Angel. And my Guardian Angel. The best friend I’ve ever had. The special gift from God – and from himself. Even if they are servants of God, they are not slaves. When one of the Angels was asked to be my Guardian Angel, he answered with love and readiness. And at this very moment he lost his previous “job description” – as a member of Thrones or Powers, Archangels or Angels. He became My Guardian Angel. And he has been sent by my God to protect me, and to take care of me.
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, to rule and guide.
“My deliverer from angry nations, you set me above my assailants; you saved me from the violent man, o Lord” (Ps 18:48-49) – Entrance Antiphon
