Guardian Angels Day

Do you believe in angels? Do you live as if they exist? What might that mean?

I was at my friend Kathy's cabin last weekend along the Colorado River (and the drive was beautiful, especially around Vail--so many golden to rust shades of trees). On her wall was a plaque given her by her sister, since Kathy's driving scares her to death. It says - "Don't drive faster than your guardian angel can fly!" Some of us by our lifestyle choices might be overworking our guardian angels.

Because of typical popular art depicting chubby cherubim...and then comments like "the face of an angel"...but what do angels really look like? I'm betting there's something awfully unusual about them since every time they show up in Scripture they're saying, "Fear not".

In our cynical, self-sufficiency of adulthood, do we forget about angels? This might be a good time to remember and thank God for his loving protection in having angels guard over us. Pray yourself through Psalm 91.

We're told to be hospitable to strangers as they may be angels!

I read that generations of Catholic youth were reminded, when dancing, to "leave room for your Guardian angel."
