Guardian angels represent individuals before God, watch over them, aid their prayer, and present their souls to God at death. Jesus once said, “See that you despise not one of these little ones for I say to you, that their angels in heavens always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.”Mathew 18:10. Guardian angels help and pray for us to stay close to God at all times. A feast in honor of the guardian angels was first observed in the 16th century. In 1615, Pope Paul V added it to the Roman calendar.
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. Keep us safe from the darkness and stay by our side, amen.
