Feast of the Holy Guardan Angels
We pray in the Collect for this Memorial: "O God, who in your unfathomable providence are pleased to send your holy Angels to guard us, hear our supplication as we cry to you, that we may always be defended by their protection and rejoice eternally in their company..."
I have had the grace at special times to feel the presence of my guardian angel. I know that some of our Religious have seen their angels when they were very young. My mother's birthday was October 2nd and I used to send my angel to her during the twenty years I was in Chile as I wanted my angel to console her and give her a happy birthday.
Let us spend some moments today in gratitude for this gift of a guardian angel.
