~ The Holy Guardian Angels ~


I just love the way this angel is swooping down to protect this little child.
That's what our guardian angels do...they guide and protect us; we just need to call out to them.  It is so amazing that each of us has our very own guardian angel.

Today, October 2nd, is the memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels. 

Our pastor leads us in prayer, every Tuesday, during the Mother of Perpetual Help Devotion...So in addition to celebrating the memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels, we prayed the Mother of Perpetual Help devotion in front of the Blessed Sacrament, followed by benediction.

I love this part of the devotion prayer:
"Mary, humble handmaid of the Lord, we need your example today to discover God's will in our lives.  You always gave God the first place in your life.  Just as you pondered his Word in your heart, help each of us to seek his plan in all that we do.  Give us the conviction that nothing is more important than doing the will of our heavenly Father.  May we spend each moment in loving and pleasing Him.  Help us follow your example in proclaiming, I am the servant of the Lord.  I will what God wills, when He wills it, as He wills it, because He wills it."

Such a beautiful and revealing devotion...
 Mother of Perpetual Help

"The Lord has put angels in charge of you,
to guard you in all your ways."  ~ Psalm 91

Additionally, October is the month of the Rosary...Have a blessed Day!
