Feast Of The Holy Guardian Angels Oct. 2

The Bible is full of passages about miraculous events where the Holy Angels have been involved in helping, guiding, warning, healing, speaking, fighting, protecting and announcing to God’s holy people.

At the instant of our conception in our mother’s womb, when the soul is infused by God into our bodies, God gives each one of us a one a Holy Guardian Angel.  He is unique, unlike any other Angel, whom God has lovingly created and custom made just for us and our unique soul.

His main job is to protect us from the constant bombardment of evil spirits who work on our soul and bodies to entice us to sin and bring the incurring death curse upon us.  “Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.”  1 Peter 5:8.

But he is also there to protect us from physical dangers from evil people, animals, and accidents (that are constantly approaching us), as soon as we wake up, walk, travel, work, pray, play or sleep.

St. Frances of Rome wrote down this vision: “The devils of the air often instigate storms, winds and thunders to frighten souls, causing their wills to weaken and cede to inconstancy, thus preparing them to falter in the Faith and to doubt Divine Providence. The devils who live on earth among men to tempt us are the fallen angels of the lowest choir. The faithful angels of this choir are our guardian angels.”

We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to daily pray to our Guardian Angel and then thank him for all he did for us that day.

my guardian dear,
To whom God’s love
commits me here,
Ever this day,

To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
