‘Angels have a hidden agenda – love.’ ~Author Unknown

We all have a fear of isolation, loneliness and that we won’t be able to manage on our own. It is a perfectly normal human fear. As a child we were reminded about our guardian angel watching over and protecting us. It was comforting and consoling to know that we had someone special looking after us. But our guardian angel journeys with us every step of our life’s journey and not just our childhood. A guardian angel isn’t fantasy or some form of magic. Our scriptures have many references to angels. They are real, active and can best be described as God’s protective love very near and close to us. Today (Oct 2nd) is their feast day but especially of your guardian angel. A fitting prayer today and indeed every day might be: “O Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen”
