It is generally thought that countries, states, cities, families, churches, each have their protecting angel. We all have a guardian angel whose eyes are ever upon us.
Thus saith the Lord God. Behold, I will send My Angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy journey, and bring thee unto the place that I have prepared. — Epistle, Exodus 23
The Imitation of Christ
For it is God that overseeth us, and we should exceedingly stand in awe of Him, and walk in His sight wherever we may be, as the Angels do in purity.
This whole month is dedicated to the devotion to our Guardian Angel. Also, October has been assigned to honor especially Our Lady of the Rosary. The Rosary, you know, is made up of prayers that have been composed almost entirely by God Himself. If John D. told you personally “Whenever you want anything, just come to me and say ‘thus and so,'” what would you do? Our Savior told us “When you pray, say ‘Our Father, Who art in heaven etc.'”
Men like St. Alphonsus and St. Bernard have said that no client of Mary has ever been lost. Resolve today upon some definite thing you will do each day in honor of our Lady and make it a life’s habit. Also, look up a picture of the Guardian Angel guiding two little children over a bridge, the picture you loved so much when your mother first told you of your Angel at your side. Make yourself realize that you have such an angel still, whether you be waxen four or lofty seventeen.
Pray for us, sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
