The Guardian Angels

Angels of God, our Guardians dear,
To whom God's Love commits us here,
Ever this day be at our sides,
To light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

We are praying today for the intercession of the Guardian Angels of all our readers.

We are praying today also for Opus Dei who celebrate the 80th anniversary of their foundation today. Cormac Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor will be celebrating an anniversary Mass in Westminster Cathedral on Wednesday 8th October at 5:30 pm and Archbishop Mario Conti will be celebrating an anniversary Mass in St Andrew's Cathedral, Glasgow on Monday 20th October at 7:30 pm. Mass will also be said in St Joseph's Parish, Longsight, Manchester at 11am on Tuesday 11th October. All Masses are preceded by Confessions.

St Josemaria Escriva; Pray for us

How very delightful to read your post on the Guardian Angels.

One never seems to hear them preached about these days, and as far as I can make out, there are very few schools who teach children about them. A shame !

Angels seem to be out of fashion, and yet the gospels are full of them, so it simply won't do to dismiss angels as merely a "pious belief".

Many thanks for your post.
