Some words from Exodus: ‘Behold, I send an angel before you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place which I have prepared. Give heed to him and hearken to his voice’.

These words express admirably the role of the Holy Guardian Angels: to guard and protect us – not just while we sleep – but on our entire life’s pilgrimage, and in our death. We on our part need to listen to their promptings.

May your own Guardian Angel be a true friend to you, and keep you safe this day. May God bless you.
