~ Angel of God ~

I love my guardian angel.
And I am thankful for my guardian angel.

"From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercessions.  'Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life.'  Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God."  (Catechism of the Catholic Church 336)."

Brethren, we will love God's angels with a most affectionate love; for they will be our heavenly co-heirs some day, these spirits who now are sent by the Father to be our protectors and our guides. With such bodyguards, what are we to fear? They can neither be subdued nor deceived; nor is there any possibility at all that they should go astray who are to guard us in all our ways. They are trustworthy, they are intelligent, they are strong — why, then, do we tremble? We need only to follow them, remain close to them, and we will dwell in the protection of the Most High God. So as often as you sense the approach of any grave temptation or some crushing sorrow hangs over you, invoke your protector, your leader, your helper in every situation. Call out to him and say: Lord, save us, we are perishing. —St. Bernard

"May the angels lead you into paradise;
may the martyrs come to welcome you
and take you to the holy city,
the new and eternal Jerusalem." (Rite for Christian Burial)
