Guardian Angels

Oct 2

Today marks the Feast Day of Guardian Angels celebrated in the Roman Catholic Church.

When we speak of angels, the first thing that comes to mind is a spiritual being in the image of man

but with the exceptional addition of wings... in order words.. WINGED CREATURES.

And many people are fascinated by the idea of having a protector, intercessor of prayers, etc etc.

But the real meaning of an Angel is not that they are spiritual, winged creatures...

An angel is the OFFICE in which the spiritual creatures holds.
It is what they do, that makes them an angel; not their nature.

May your guardian angel continue to intercede for you as they continually offer your prayers and theirs at the altar of God in heaven.
