Today is the feast of the Guardian Angels, those great celestial beings who are constantly keeping watch over us as they simultaneously behold the face of God. Their existence is but one more proof of God's infinite love for each one of us. As we celebrate them today, we have also the opportunity to thank them for their loving care for us and their perpetual presence. Let us also invoke their guidance, mindful that they desire our good and eternal glory in God:
Prayer to One's Guardian Angel
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,
rule and guide.
