We all have a Guardian Angel

We all have a Guardian Angel who protects us from spiritual and physical harm and inspires us to do good.
Our angel is entrusted with helping us to come to know and love God in this life. They are truly our best friends on this earth, and yet, we ignore them so much. Beside each one of us stands an angel given to us by God to watch over us our whole life. (CCC #336).
St. Padre Pio said that his Guardian Angel has been his friend since infancy:
“Little companion of my infancy, angiolino, angioletto, my secretary, inseparable companion, celestial person, celestial messenger, brother, friend, prevents danger, one of the family, translates for me the letters in other languages, I send him to console people suffering, prevents from stumbling, never leaves us alone for an instant, from the cradle to the grave, even when we are sinning.”
Please always remember your Guardian Angel, and teach your children to say this prayer every day:
”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.
Below is a list by Dr. Peter Kreeft titled: “Angels — The Twelve Most Important Things to Know About Them”
1. They really exist. Not just in our minds, or our myths, or our symbols, or our culture. They are as real as your dog, or your sister, or electricity.
2. They’re present, right here, right now, right next to you, reading these words with you.
3. They’re not cute, cuddly, comfortable, chummy, or “cool”. They are fearsome and formidable. They are huge. They are warriors.
4. They are the real “extra-terrestrials”, the real “Super-men”, the ultimate aliens. Their powers are far beyond those of all fictional creatures.
5. They are more brilliant minds than Einstein.
6. They can literally move the heavens and the earth if God permits them.
7. There are also evil angels, fallen angels, demons, or devils. These too are not myths. Demon possessions, and exorcisms, are real.
8. Angels are aware of you, even though you can’t usually see or hear them. But you can communicate with them. You can talk to them without even speaking.
9. You really do have your very own “guardian angel”. Everybody does.
10. Angels often come disguised. “Do not neglect hospitality, for some have entertained angels unawares” — that’s a warning from life’s oldest and best instruction manual.
11. We are on a protected part of a great battlefield between angels and devils, extending to eternity.
12. Angels are sentinels standing at the crossroads where life meets death. They work especially at moments of crisis, at the brink of disaster — for bodies, for souls, and for nations.
