Happy Feastday of the Holy Guardian Angels!

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.

For He commands His angels with regard to you, to guard you wherever you go.  With their hands they support you, lest you dash your foot against a stone.  (Psalm 91)

In the presence of the angels, I will praise you, my God.   (Psalm 138)

  1. Every feast of the Holy Angels leaves me slightly embarrassed that I am not more aware of my angel guardian. This angel deserves the greatest respect and gratitude. I have dubbed my angel Samson, “Shining One” who is also very strong. Loved your icon. I love painting angels.

      Thanks, Sister. I admit that I don’t often think of my guardian angel either. There seems to be so much, so many inspiring saints, various devotions and consecrations: so many ways to seek God. It is almost distracting in its complexity, hard to narrow down and focus on one or two ways amongst so many good choices, so many good things.
