The Baltimore Guardian Angels
Hailing from Baltimore City and Washington DC, some of the audience members are old Guardian Angel pros and some are recent volunteers, but everyone’s attention is on the man who is speaking. Growing up with his Mom, Grandma, two brothers, and three sisters, Marcus Dent lived most of his life in Baltimore City and Baltimore County. Like many families in Baltimore City, they had their fair share of troubles and worries. Marcus himself gained a lot of insight into the problems communities in the Baltimore area face not only as a resident, but as a member of the Guardian Angels during their first incarnation in the city back in the 1980s and 1990s. The Guardian Angels’ presence in Baltimore the first time around was short-lived.
He worked with a variety of organizations, including Baltimore County Schools, on community service projects. He never forgot his time with the Guardian Angels. When he saw a newspaper article about the organization opening a new chapter in Cape Town, South Africa, he renewed contact with the Guardian Angels’ founder, Curtis Sliwa. Although the Guardian Angels were opening successful chapters within the United States and worldwide, their absence in Baltimore was beginning to be noticed. In 2005, a citizen concerned about the increase in crime in the area contacted Curtis Sliwa about the possibility for the Angels’ return to Charm City.
It would take several months and many exploratory meetings with community leaders, churches, schools, police departments, and government officials, but soon enough Marcus found himself at the forefront of the new and vastly improved Baltimore Chapter of the Guardian Angels. In 2009, Strider was awarded the honor of Chapter Commander of the Year by Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels.
It’s Universal Guardian Angel Appreciation Day!
Although Guardian Angels have been venerated since the early days of the Church, it wasn’t until the 17th century that Pope Clement X extended the feast day to the universal Church. It is also a good time to make the resolution to pray to your Guardian Angel daily as our Holy Father admonishes us. It might be a good idea to keep a guardian angel sacramental handy to increase your devotion to your guardian angel and help you to remember to stay closely connected with them throughout the day. Although not a dogmatic article of the faith, it is yet a firmly established Catholic belief that each individual person has their own guardian angel assigned to watch over their soul. According to Aquinas, our guardian angels have a good influence over us, but they cannot control our free will.
Guardian angels influence or guide us by acting upon our intellect through our senses and our imagination. Our guardian angels are also able to protect us from danger as well as assist us in prayer and meditation on the divine things of God. We don’t only have the Scriptures and the Doctors of the Church who tell us about our Guardian Angels. We also have the saints, some of which actually witnessed their guardian angel in action. In many cases their Guardian Angel was visible to them.
Saints who wrote about these experiences include St. Padre Pio, who could see his guardian angel would often send him on special missions; St. Faustina Kowalska, whose Guardian Angel accompanied her to observe the pains of the Holy Souls in Purgatory; and St. Gemma Galgani, to name a few. So let us give thanks to God for these amazing ministering spirits, and be open to the ways your guardian angel is daily helping you to do God’s will.
