Why do we have Guardians?
We have a Guardian Angel. I believe we have many angels and they come in many different ways for many different reasons. They don’t look the same. They have many attributes and enjoy different assignments. We need to acknowledge them. Welcome them and use them. God has given them to us to guide us, protect us to guard us and to light the way.
Engage them into your life. Why not? Here is a long time Catholic prayer to our Guardian Angel. It was written by St. Anselm, a Benedictine Monk during his lifetime. 1033-1109. We said it all the time as a child.
Angel of God my guardian dear to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day be at my side to light to guard to rule, to guide. Amen.
Meet Jake the Angel. He is a famous angel that belongs to our family. In fact we have t-shirts with his picture on them.Everyone has either a blanket or a t-shirt with Jake on it. It started as a project, to have a tough looking angel as a logo. All the faces the artist had given me just didn’t work, until we added Jake, my grandson’s face. Now the family all loves this angel. He has taken on life.
It is wonderful to imagine the supernatural addition of angels walking all around us. They exist and work on our behalf. The iron-on scriptures for The Guardian says “He gives His angels charge of me, to protect me and to defend me. They lift me up in their hands so that I do not even strike my foot against a stone. “ Psalm 91;11-12
