The Work of Angels

Angels are not Divine, but were themselves created but Christ, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers”. The apostle Peter reminds us that “God did not spare the Angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment”. In a vision John saw Angels around the throne of God, “And the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands”. Abraham, the friend of God who dwelt under the oak tree at Mamre, was visited by Angels in human form. Angels have often been involved in giving help to mortal men, such as feeding Elijah in the wilderness, protecting Daniel from the lions, delivering Hezekiah from the Assyrians, and freeing Peter from prison. Our Savior told us about the rich man and Lazarus, and how when the rich man died he was buried, but Lazarus “Was carried by the Angels into Abraham’s bosom”. The concern Angels have for us is also shown by the fact that “There is joy in the presence of the Angels of God over one sinner who repents”. Angels were constant attendants during the earthly ministry of our Lord – they came to Him in times of distress, peril and want. Our Lord said, “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their Angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven”. While Jesus assures us that we have Angels who work on our behalf, He did not say there is an Angel who is assigned for every person. Angels will accompany the Lord when He returns – the voice of the Archangel will be heard when the Lord descends to judge the world – and all of His holy Angels will be with Him. Christ will return “With His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ”. In the parable of the wheat and tares, Jesus tells us how at the judgment “The Son of Man will send out His Angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Then in the parable of the dragnet, He tells us how “The Angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire”. If Angels of heaven shouted with joy when the earth was born – if the Angels hailed with “Hosannas” the Babe born in Bethlehem, what will be their “Hallelujahs” when they accompany the King in all His triumphant glory?

Spiritualist medium, spiritual teacher & angel intuitive: Sharon May

Who is my Guardian Angel?What is your guardian angels name? You can ask for the name if you really need to know it, one way is to use a meditation to ask, but even simpler is just before you go to sleep, ask for the name of your guardian angel to come to you and that the first thing that you remember in the morning will be your guardian angels name. Angels don’t always have angelic sounding names, some people have told me that they received a name such as ‘Fred or Colin’, and dismissed them because it wasn’t ‘Angelic enough’. I was surprised to feel the connection of a very tall dark man called ‘Fred’, w-hen I asked my angel to come to me and as much as I tried to argue that Fred was not a proper angel’s name, he insisted that’s who he was. I felt really happy and loved by my angel and glad to have someone on my side. My friend and I had a good giggle at our angel’s names and tried to see if we knew anyone of that name, but to no avail. Well we all have at least one Guardian angel who is assigned to us from birth, your guardian angel will be with you ALWAYS, some people have more than one, but these are usually a loved one who is in the spirit world like a parent or grandparent, although these are not strictly angels, as an angel is a celestial being who has never been human. The spirit loved ones ACT in a similar way to a guardian angel, as they are often there to help us when we need reassurance. So as you can see not all guardian angels have angelic sounding names and not all of them can be found named in books etc, but the thing is to know that your particular guardian angel has introduced himself to you and that is a real privilege, that’s what it’s all about, building up a relationship with your guardian angel, and it’s better to ask directly rather than to look in any book anyway! You just have to find the best way for you both to communicate, and that’s an experiment that everyone can try. ‘open your heart and feel the presence of angels’. My angel, guides and helpers like to talk to me when I’m doing the chores as well, they particularly like it when I’m ironing as I’m very much a ‘captive audience’ then. When will I know that my Guardian Angel is around?Your Guardian angel will show you a ‘calling card’, this is a sign to let you know that they are with you. You need to ask your guardian angel to show you what this is going to be so that whenever you receive this ‘calling card’ this will be confirmation of your Angels presence. Finally the most important of all!!Remember to say thank you to your angels, as I know they really appreciate this. ‘ANGELS’, the FIRST emergency service!’.

Why Catholics believe in guardian angels

Guardian angels, like everything the Catholic Church teaches, are completely Biblical …. Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Guardian Angels on Oct. 2 because every individual has a guardian angel, and awareness of our guardian angel can be a comfort and aid in our spiritual growth. Belief in guardian angels is a common-sense implication from many passages of Scripture. “For he will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.” In the New Testament, the task of angels as “Ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation” is revealed even more clearly than in the Old Testament. When Jesus urges us to develop the trust and unpretentiousness of little children and then warns those who would despoil the souls of these little ones, he concludes with what may seem to us a curious statement: “See that you do not despise one of the little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my heavenly Father”. Each of these little children has his or her own angel before God in heaven. Jesus was drawing on the Hebrew revelation that angels are guardians of nations and individuals, adults as well as children, and they perform various assignments. He has discharged guardian angels to assist us in our roles. Referring to Christ’s words above, St. Jerome commented, “How great the dignity of the soul, since each one has from his birth an angel commissioned to guard it.” Saint Thomas Aquinas further taught that our guardian angels could act upon our senses and imagination, though not upon our will. I suspect that many people dismiss guardian angels not because they’ve examined the data of Scripture or considered how eternity might penetrate time, but because of an adolescent prejudice: Guardian angels look like “Imaginary friends” who are just projections of our own need for consolation in an unsafe world. The fact that some spiritually stunted people find comfort in the notion is no argument against the actual existence of guardian angels. As purely spiritual creatures, angels have intelligence and will: they are personal and immortal creatures, surpassing in perfection all visible creatures, as the splendor of their glory bears witness. The whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of angels. 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 in God.

ABSTRACT ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The Guardian Angels represent a form of citizen crime prevention that has fostered interest and concern regarding their impact, motives, leadership and organizational structure. Led by their founder, Curtis Sliwa, these volunteers patrol the streets and subways in over 50 cities. We are grateful to Curtis and Lisa Sliwa for their support of the research and their willingness to open all Guardian Angels’ chapters to our intensive review. Sliwa’s parents, Fran and Chester Sliwa, warrant special recognition for their efforts in arranging interviews with New York Angel members, providing information about Curtis’ background and responding to our seemingly endless requests for information. The purpose of this exploratory study was to document the activities of the Angels, assess their impact on crime and citizen fear of crime and describe features of the group that differentiate them from other citizen patrols. Recent research suggests that citizen patrols may reduce crime and make citizens feel safe by imposing social order. Findings suggest that Angels may not reduce the violent offenses they seek to prevent although they may have limited impact on property crimes. Segments of the population feel safe when Angels patrol which may be associated with the Angels performing an order maintenance role. Sliwa’s efforts to mobilize minority youth to be positive role models is a unique feature of the Angels. In each of these cities, the following individuals provided the research team with invaluable assistance in scheduling interviews with agency personnel, securing approval for surveys of patrol officers, and setting up ride-alongs with patrol officers. Concern for our welfare when patrolling with the Angels during late night hours is also much appreciated. The study includes three volumes: an executive summary, a technical report with summary tables, and methodology and research instruments. The Guardian Angel chapter leaders and members deserve our gratitude for their cooperation with our research. V~s~ts ~ere r~gorous and we commend the Guardian Angels for arrangmg patrol actlvItIes, mtervlews and other data collection efforts to accommodate our study requirements. We appreciate the time and cooperation of leaders of citizen crime prevention group leaders in San Diego County as well as Paula Broxmeyer, LJ.A.I.S.O.N. Executive Director; Matt Peskin, Executive Director, National Association of Townwatch; Robert Yancey, Coordinator of the Florence, New Jersey Townwatch; and Donald Blancke, President, Citizens’ Patrol, Inc., in Stockton, California.

Having an “Enemy” is an illusion, being a “Victim” is an illusion, as these are human constructs. You are all souls who are being human for the moment, while incarnated on this planet. Part of being human is understanding human emotions, which is why the illusion of separation from one another was needed, so that you could clearly experience these human emotions. This phase of human learning is coming to an end, as souls currently incarnated on earth are in the process of completing the particular lessons that were part of this world, of this vibrational level. As with human schools, there may be a small percentage that may have to repeat the grade, but most will pass, as it would make no sense to have the majority fail. The same applies here with the human population of Mother Earth, although there seems to be some doubt among many, but dear friends, what sense would it make to have the majority of human beings fail in their attempt to pass the final exams and move on to the next level? Rest assured that there is also much help provided by the universe, as not only does each human being have his/her own spirit guide and guardian angel, plus extra guides to help them through this particularly difficult phase, but there is also help in the form of energy coming to you, as there is the current beam of ultraviolet light coming from the central sun of the galaxy that works as an activator for the transformation. There are cosmic and celestial energies pouring to earth and to all human beings, to help with everyone’s development and transformation. Well my dear friends, for most humans it will be a day like any other. From a cosmic point of view the changes are quite drastic, but from a human point of view they are slow, as it takes years for those changes to manifest and show. What are these changes? Although we have mentioned some before, allow me to explore these some more, as there are many among you who have some doubts and much curiosity. As you begin to adapt to the new vibrational level of Mother Earth, your perception of it will change. Some lower human emotions such as rage, jealousy and envy will slowly diminish, eventually even vanish. Don’t expect these changes overnight! It takes years, even centuries, for some of these changes to manifest. From a cosmic point of view this is the blink of an eye, but you may have to have much more patience, even beyond your current lifetime, but some changes may be noticeable as soon as the New Year begins. Avoid parties and human crowds, it is a time to be with yourself, within a small group of friends, even by yourself somewhere out in nature, or in a group meditation where everyone’s mind calms down.

Guardian Angel by Author Sara Paretsky

Racine Avenue is going upscale-bad news for hand-to-mouth residents like V I Warshawski. As tax bills skyrocket, newcomers pressure old inhabitants into fixing up their homes or moving out. To the yuppies on the block the worst eyesore belongs to old Hattie Frizell, whose yard is “Returning to native prairie, complete with hubcaps.” Their block club wants her and her five dogs gone. Neighboring lawyer Todd Pichea and his wife, Chrissie, act swiftly to get the courts to make them Hattie’s legal guardians. V I returns from a business trip to find they’ve put the old woman’s dogs to sleep. Guardian Angel, the seventh in Sara Paretsky’s best-selling series, proves once again that V I Warshawski is “America’s most convincing and engaging female private eye.” Reviews and QuotesWith each novel Paretsky lets intrepid detective V I Warshawski take a few more physical lumps, though the more interesting dings are emotional ones. Here Paretsky constructs and maintains one monster of a plot. V I Warshawski is that rarity among fictive P.I.’s-a fully realized characterSara Paretsky’s sensitivity and moral perspective, coupled with her fine talent, make her a significant American novelist. It isn’t until page 50 of Sara Paretsky’s new novel, Guardian Angel, that a client engages V I Warshawski to track down a missing old man. Our interest never flags, since plenty of solid groundwork is being laid and we get into the detective’s skin much more than is usual in a private-eye novel. The plot serves nicely to bring V I into contact with tough, down-and-out types, whom Ms. Paretsky draws extremely well. Tessie, a middle-aged barmaid, comments on V I’s search for a supposed missing uncle: “Hope you find him, honey. These old drunks eat up a lot of family time.” Someone else, who had recently turned down Kruger’s invitation for a drink, tells her: “I know what those drinks with Mitch are like. The next thing you know he’s had 10 and you either have to carry him home or pay to repair a window.” Ms. Paretsky obviously knows and loves Chicago, describing it with the light but effective touch that characterizes all the writing in this novel. V I turns her car “Down Congress toward Louis Sullivan’s masterpiece,” and a while later briefly describes the Sanitary and Ship Canal, built to connect the Illinois and Chicago rivers back in 1900, as a “30-mile stretch of water, crisscrossed by rail beds,” along which “Grain and cement elevators hover over heaps of scrap metal.” Chicago fits V I like a glove; both the city and the detective are blue-collar.

Stories of Angel Encounters

Our email is flooded by so many stories from people you believe they have been visited by Angels or deceased loved ones. Angel’s on the Cliff: My grandma, mom and I were driving to BC for Easter and I needed out of the car to run and play we stopped at the Columbia Ice fields and decided to go up for a walk. Because of them, I didn’t lose the only family I had. Angel’s Protective Cloak: One day in 1979, I was driving along Alameda and Firestone in the City of South Gate California, when all of a sudden my headlights went out, my muffler started to drag, making a lot of sparks and noise. Whenever my family went there for visits; he’d always want me to go out and swing with him. As I sat there remembering how it use to be, Chetty walked up to me and an Angel was holding his hand. At exactly 1:40 pm that afternoon my husband who works out of our home felt the need to go to the store. Always listen to your guardian angel! One morning as I woke up I heard a voice saying over and over don’t get on the boat, don’t get on the boat. The first of the two gun shot sounds were when the rope snapped and the second one, when it hit me in the head. It knocked me out and cause great bodily injury to me. So everyone out there don’t make the mistake that I did. Angels, watch over my family: One of our sons, was going to a party to meet a friend and my wife told him not to go; he said that he was going and left in the car; as he was going down the highway, he felt angelic communications to the effect that he should turn around; he did not pay attention and was wondering who was he talking to? One exit before his required exit, he felt that someone turned the steering wheel and took the car out that exit; he then felt, that he should listen, and returned home; he relayed the story to us. We found out the next day, that there was a shooting at the party and his friend was killed. ‘ When the fire rescue people came, he told them that there was someone in the back seat and they said that there was NO ONE THERE! He knew then that it was an angel in disguise, keeping him from loosing his grip on the situation…saved his life! No creature too small: One weekend I was away from home and found that my two Jack Russell dogs were let out of the yard by someone leaving their gate open. Just stopping to see if I was alright was all I needed to know that my higher power had connected with me through a stranger who I feel was an angel. Survival in Vietnam: I don’t know if this was an Angel or my father who had recently passed, but I was stationed in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971 at the time that the United States was beginning to pull out of the country.

Guardian Angels

Today Angels are inherently a highly religious phenomenon, and the implied concept of Angels is indirect communication with God himself. The concept of Guardian Angels has likely been around since the dawn of mankind. The modern day depictions of winged beings sitting on clouds and playing harps comes to mind in pretty much all of us when we think of our Guardian Angel, or of Angels in general. In the mainstream psyche, we generally see Guardian Angels as spiritual beings with our best interests at heart whose purpose is to serve us without interfering with our free will. So what are Guardian Angels? Are they real? Are they figments of our collective imaginations? Are they something in the realm of paranormal like ghosts? Is there any proof that they exist? Are they agents of God? Can we see them? What do they look like? Can we talk to them? The Bible actually says very little specifically about Guardian Angels, other than little kids may be more attuned than we are…. Matthew 18:10 states, “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” Little kids in their innocence probably provide more anecdotal evidence of Angels or Guardian Angels than all adults combined. In many religions, Guardian Angels are not directly related to us, but rather are entities that have never lived human life. Guardian Angels are Deceased Relatives Who Watch Over Us: Many people who have had encounters with Guardian Angels report the distinct feeling that the Angel was not a stranger at all and that it was a recognizable deceased relative. Various polls actually seem to indicate that slightly more people perceive their Guardian Angels as being close family members than unidentified heavenly beings. Guardian Angels are a Projection of Our Higher Selves: We all think we know ourselves, but our actual selves are much more complex than we think. Some refer to it as being “Multidimensional” or as existing on “Different vibrational planes.” As it pertains to Guardian Angels, in this scenario, you would be your own Guardian Angel, with all the resources necessary. Guardian Angels are in the Here and Now – They are People Who Come and Go Throughout Our Lives: We’ve all experienced it – we are in a mess and can’t find a way out when someone comes into our lives and provides the solution. The Bible refers to this very thing with regard to our Angels: “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.” There are literally millions of accounts of people talking to their Guardian Angels, many even by name.

Monday of the Second Week of Ordinary Time

It was from St. Jerome that the west learned of the life of St. Paul the Hermit; the book, which he devoted to the life of the first Christian hermit, charmed and instructed generations of the faithful and formed the inspiration of many artists. St. Paul is said to have died in 341, in a hermitage in the region of Thebes in Egypt after having received at the age of 113 a visit from St. Antony. According to the 1962 Missal of St. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, St. Paul is celebrated as a Confessor, III class and St. Maurus is commemorated. St. Maurus was one of the first disciples of St. Benedict. Paul is called “The first hermit” in the Missal and Breviary, a rare distinction, for such titles are seldom appended. One day St. Anthony, then ninety, was divinely inspired to visit the hermit Paul. As the raven flew away, Paul said: “See, the Lord, who is truly good and merciful, has sent us food. Every day for sixty years I have received half a loaf, but with your arrival Christ sent His servants a double ration.” Giving thanks, they ate by a spring. At daybreak Paul informed Anthony of his approaching death and asked him to fetch the cloak he had received from St. Athanasius, that he might wrap himself in it. Further traditional matter may be found in The Life of Paul the Hermit, written by St. Jerome about the year 376.Patron: Clothing industry; weavers. St. MaurusIn Benedictine history Maurus holds a distinguished place, taught and trained by St. Benedict himself. He was being borne along by the waves when from his cell St. Benedict realized what had happened. Imagine his shock and amazement when he realized that he had run some distance on water! His explanation? Such a miracle could not have happened save by virtue of his master’s command! St. Gregory relates the incident in his Second Book of Dialogues along with much other interesting detail from the life of St. Benedict. The Martyrology makes this comment on the miracle: How greatly he advanced in faith under his teacher is attested by an occurrence unheard of since the days of St. Peter; for, on one occasion he walked upon water as though it were dry land. Our Lady of Prompt Succor Devotion to Our Lady of Prompt Succor dates back to 1802, when the Ursuline Order in New Orleans pleaded for help in sustaining the Order with new sisters from France. At Communion time, a messenger arrived with the news that Gen. Andrew Jackson’s overmatched army had successfully driven the British from the city.

LAKE WORTH – The streets of Lake Worth have few similarities to the streets of Detroit, Los Angeles and New York, but what they have in common has many people worried. “They all deal with the same problem – crack,” said Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, guest of honor at an anti-drug parade and barbecue held by the local Guardian Angels chapter. Sliwa marched with more than 50 residents through the blighted neighborhood just west of Dixie Highway, where the city is fighting the spread of crack. NEWS. Six men and one woman donned their Guardian Angel uniforms to fight crime in West Palm Beach on Nov. 20, 1987, but instead they became victims, they said, when two men hurled a pipe bomb into their midst during a late-night patrol. They testified that Wilson, 30, and Jones, 35, were “Mutants” and members of “The criminal element” that the Guardian Angels have dedicated themselves against.

While the appearance of angels also varies, many views of angels give them a human shape. The Angels of creation are a group of seven angels who are said to have been in existence before Creation of the world. St. Thomas Aquinas, one of history’s foremost experts on angels, stated that all people have guardian angels. All guardian angels are taken from the lowest ranks of the celestial hierarchy, namely the choir of angels. In the latter, the angel Israfel shall play a blast upon his mighty trumpet to awaken the slumbering dead. Some angels will be spared the effects of the first blasts, but after the third or fourth even they shall be destroyed by the Lord and the end of time will have descended upon all of creation. The famed archangel Raphael is said to be the angel responsible for guarding the tree of life; this angel was also named by John Dryden in his poem “State of Innocence, or the Fall of Man,” as being the very angry angel who tossed Adam and Eve out of Paradise. As Jewish custom declares all the guardian angels of nations to have fallen, the angel of Egypt joined denizens of the hoary netherworld; it is unclear whether the Lord ever appointed a successor. The angels who have authority over the seven days of the week-in much the same fashion as there are angels presiding over the planets, hours of the day, and months of the year. Aside from these angels, the Merkabah accepted that there were groups of angels always surrounding the throne of God. One of the most important of all duties of angels, so much so that the very Hebrew word mal’akh and greek word angelos, denoting these beings, both mean “Messenger.” The angel stands as one of the central intermediaries or representatives of the Lord to humanity. Angels of superhuman ministry: angels of the angels. One of the accepted choirs of angels as established by the sixth-century theologian Dionysius the Areopagite; the archangels are ranked eighth in the nine choirs, above angels and below principalities. Only there in Daniel does Michael appear as “One of the chief princes” who in Daniel’s vision comes to the angel Gabriel’s aid in his contest with the angel of Persia, and is also described there as the advocate of Israel. Known in the Arabic as Jibril, Gabriel has a prominent role in Islamic teachings, for he believed to have dictated the entire Qur’an, surah by surah, to Muhammad and is called the angel of truth and the chief of the four favored angels. Raphael is honored as the regent of the sun, the angel of healing, the angel of science, the angel of knowledge, head of the guardian angels, and chief of the angelic orders of virtues, although he is also a member of the seraphim, the dominations, and the cherubim.

EWTN’s Saints and other Holy People Home

Not only do believers have faith on their side, but they have “Witnesses” of God’s Word. Holy Scripture contains numerous examples that witness to the existence of angels and their manifestations in relation to the fulfillment of particular missions. The well-known example of Mary’s Annunciation involved an angel sent by God to announce that the moment had arrived for the fulfillment of the coming of God’s Son: He would be conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of Mary as man. Angels were also the witnesses and heralds of Jesus’ Resurrection. With Sacred Scripture as its foundation, the Church affirms the existence of angels and puts into light their mission in relation to collective salvation in history as well as individual salvation. In a Catechesis during the early years of his Pontificate, keeping in mind what is held by tradition, John Paul II affirmed that “The angels, as pure spirits, not only participate in the holiness of God himself, in the manner proper to them, but in the key moments they surround Christ and accompany him in the fulfillment of his salvific mission in regard to mankind”. Holiness as the fruit of grace and love, is shared by the angels. Without manipulating Scripture, we can say that participation in God’s holiness can be understood in relation to the redemptive holiness which springs forth from Christ, by means of and in sight of which the angels were created. Such participation was held in a specific way by the angels. In the Catechesis mentioned above, John Paul also affirms that “In the key moments [the angels] surround Christ and accompany him in the fulfilment of his salvific mission in regard to mankind”. Angels, created by God according to the importance and necessity of each situation, therefore “Accompany” and “Surround” the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ. As part of the historical and ecclesiological profile it must also be mentioned that angels journey together with the Church in her mission of salvation and at the same time travel side-by-side with her members; all human beings have their own guardian angel to guard, protect and enlighten them. The Catechism of the Catholic Church proclaims that “From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their 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 in God”. In her liturgy, the Church prays to the angels for herself and others, calling upon their protection and intercession: it is sufficient to follow the liturgy of the Mass to be convinced. The same Church makes the special prayer to the guardian angel available to the faithful and to all who wish to recite it.

What Do Guardian Angels Do?

If you believe in guardian angels, you probably wonder what kind of divine assignments these hardworking spiritual beings fulfill. People throughout recorded history have presented some fascinating ideas about what guardian angels are like and what different types of jobs they do. Guardian angels watch over people during their entire lives on Earth, many different religious traditions say. Belief in guardian angels who God charges with lifetime care of humans is also a vital part of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As their name implies, guardian angels are often seen as working to guard people against danger. In Matthew 18:10 of the Bible, Jesus Christ mentions that children have guardian angels protecting them. Mystic and writer Amos Komensky, who lived during the 17th century, wrote that God assigns guardian angels to help protect children “Against all dangers and snares, pits, ambushes, traps, and temptations.” But adults get the benefit of guardian angels’ protection, too, says the Book of Enoch, which is included in the holy scriptures of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. 1 Enoch 100:5 declares that God will “Set a guard of holy angels over all the righteous.” The Quran says in Al Ra’d 13:11: “For each [person], there are angels in front of him and behind him, who guard him by Allah’s command.” Your guardian angel may be constantly praying for you, asking God to help you even when you’re not aware that an angel is interceding in prayer on your behalf. The Catholic Church’s catechism says of guardian angels: “From infancy to death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession.” Buddhists believe that angelic beings called bodhisattvas who watch over people, listen to people’s prayers, and join in with the good thoughts that people pray. Guardian angels may also be guiding your path in life. In Exodus 32:34 of the Torah, God tells Moses as Moses is preparing to lead the Hebrew people to a new place: “My angel will go before you.” Psalm 91:11 of the Bible says of angels: “For he [God] will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” Popular literary works have sometimes portrayed the idea of faithful and fallen angels offering good and bad guidance, respectively. The famous 16th century play The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus featured both a good angel and a bad angel, who offer conflicting advice. People of many faiths believe that guardian angels record everything that people think, say, and do in their lifetimes and then pass the information along to higher-ranking angels to include in the universe’s official records. Islam and Sikhism both say that every person has two guardian angels for his or her earthly lifetime, and those angels record both the good and bad deeds that the person performs.

How to Know the NAME of your GUARDIAN ANGEL

What Does the Bible Say About Your Guardian Angel?

“My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm.” To grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels. Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. “Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women,”Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.” In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,. You have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,. Manoah said to the angel of the Lord., “What is your name, so that, when your words come true, we may honor you?” And the angel of the Lord. During the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said,. Bless the Lord., O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word! God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. Up! Lift up the boy, and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make him into a great nation.” Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. Said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,”‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. The king declared to Daniel, “O Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm.” Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

Republished: Put Your Guardian Angel To Work At All Times

By Thomas A. Droleskey Each of us is given a Guardian Angel to guide us home safely to Heaven. Do we make use of him, putting him to work at all times? Today, October 2, the Feast of the Guardian Angels, is a very good time to consider how much we need to rely upon our Guardian Angel to help us to get home to Heaven. We need to give our Guardian Angels permission to read our minds and to know our thoughts so that they can better assist us during the course of a day. “Dear Guardian Angel, I give you permission this day and every day to read my mind and to know my thoughts. Help me to say my prayers well.” A simple prayer such as this at the beginning of each day is, in addition to the Guardian Angel Prayer a way to begin a running conversation with our Guardian Angel during the course of a day. “Dear Guardian Angel, help me at this moment.” “Dear Guardian Angel, be the instrument by which God the Holy Ghost can better enlighten my mind and to strengthen my will as I strive to love God more and to despise all things that displease Him, starting with my own sins.” Little prayers such as these will keep us close to the angelic being who beholds the very face of the glory of God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as he assists us here as members of the Church Militant on the face of the earth. Our Guardian Angels want us to use them at every moment of our lives. Our Guardian Angels can help to remind us to get up in the morning. As soon as I remembered to pray to my Guardian Angel the name occurred to me: Lotrimin. With regard to the work of salvation, the Guardian Angel has no fear of being left alone at his post; at his request, and at God’s command, the troops of his blessed companions, who fill heaven and earth, are ever ready to lend him their aid. All the more reason for us to ask our Guardian Angels to help to keep us from even the smallest sins so that we can grow in holiness rather than sink into the mire of lukewarmness and the neglect of our interior lives engendered thereby. Although the lowest of the rank of the nine choirs of angels, our Guardian Angels are close to the Queen of the Angels, our dear Blessed Mother, Mary. Our Guardian Angels want us to shower Our Lady with acts of love and devotion. Oh, yes, our Guardian Angels stand ready to help to prompt us to say our prayers. Will we let them? Will we let our Guardian Angels know that we want to rely upon their assistance and that we want to eternal praise to the God Who created both them and us out of a free will act of love? Will we let our Guardian Angels help us to die to self as we carry the crosses that God ordains for us to carry so that we might know an unending Easter Sunday of glory in Paradise? Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and to guard, to rule and to guide.
