THE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE OFFICE... reminds you that the Feast of the Guardian Angels is commemorated on October 2. Angels abound in Scripture. There they display God’s generous care, comfort, and healing. While belief in guardian angels is not at the level of dogma, St. Basil says with confidence, ―Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life (CCC, #336). Angels serve to demonstrate—and exemplify—the wonderful workings of God in our lives. 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.
