Today's Gospel: Matthew 18:1-5, 10 - Memorial of the Guardian Angels "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father." Mt 18:10 I grew up without knowing my guardian angel. Raised in the Protestant religion, I did not even know guardian angels existed. I first learned about them when I married my Catholic husband and raised our children in the Catholic faith. Eventually I converted, but I never really thought I had my own guardian angel. So, what if you never knew you had a guardian angel? Do you still have one? I did not have a lot of religious instruction as a child. I grew up in a small town and often walked to church by myself. I preferred going to church over Sunday School. I learned more hearing the readings and the sermon. I really wanted to learn. I really wanted to know Jesus. Looking back, I have often thought that Jesus must have walked me to church. And maybe He sent me an angel to keep me company and watch over me. "What a comfort to you it is to know that when we go out of the house, we are never alone en route." - St John Vianney, Sermon on the Feast of the Guardian Angels


God loves us so much, he gave us a guardian angel to watch over us. Do you know your guardian angel?


God, thank You for nudging me to go to church when I was just a little girl. And for sending me an angel to tell me You loved me.
