Guardian Angels

After a few incredibly busy days, I'm back.
If someone asks where are guardian angels in the Bible, the clearest answer is found in the gospel.

In the gospel of Matthew we read "Beware that you don't despise a single one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.*

The Church continues to teach not just a belief in angels in general but in guardian angels specifically, purely spiritual beings whose role it is to watch over us.

I would simply remind you of the simple prayer:

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 and rule and guide. Amen.
