Feast of the Guardian Angels (October 2)
We celebrate the Feast of archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael on September 29.On October 2, we remember all other angel - our Guardian Angels. Both the Old and the New Testament sections of the Bible recognize that God gives each person born into this world an angel guardian. Jesus, calling a little child to Him, said that the angels in heaven watch over children such as this one. By a loving providence, God reaches into human life to guard, protect, and lead us on our way to salvation. Refreshing our memories of a prayer learned in childhood we pray:
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side,
To light, to guard, to rule and guide. AMEN.
