Our Guardian Angel accompanies us from the time of our conception to the time of our reunion with our creator at the time of death. They are our greatest friend, company and consolation.
They are especially close to us in times of sadness, confinement or hardship. Yet how many of us know or even remember that they are there?
In our work we acknowledge the presence of these guardians of our souls, so bringing their light to enhance the lives of others.
From a prisoner in a Maximum Security unit :
“I am glad you have told me about my Guardian Angel. It never occurred to me to think about him, or even that I have one. I have given him the name ‘Ekolelo’. In our local language this means Trustee. I will always remember him by that name.”
“My name is Harriet. I am in a Catholic secondary school and I was excited when I read a copy of your book “Having a Guardian Angel”. I was really impressed and educated by the words and pictures – I really learnt a big lesson from it, that we have Guardian Angels. After I finished reading I realised that God has asked his angels to be with us in all things. I pray now before school to glorify God and to my angel for protection. Would you permit me to have more copies so I could give some to my friends It may be that through this that some may get salvation.”
“If only you could hear the questions from my little nieces and nephew, about the angel teaching the little child to pray in the book you sent, ‘Having a Guardian Angel’. Indeed, these icons impress, teach and exhort better than a thousand homilies because ‘seeing is believing’.
Pashal, Nigerian seminarian.
“You recently sent us a few copies of ‘Having a Guardian Angel’. The students were deeply touched by the contents.”
Rev. Fr. Wasswa Vincent, School chaplain.
“According to the tradition of the Church, we all have an angel with us, who protects us, helps us hear things. How often have we heard: ‘I should do this, I should not do this, that’s not right, be careful …’: so often! It is the voice of our traveling companion. Be sure that he will guide us to the end of our lives with advice, and so listen to his voice, don’t rebel against it…because rebellion, the desire to be independent, is something that we all have; this is arrogance, the same arrogance of our father Adam in paradise: the very same. Do not rebel: follow his advice”.
“No one journeys alone and no one should think that they are alone” – continued the Pope – because “this companion” is always there:
“And when we do not want to listen to his advice, to listen to his voice, it’s like saying, ‘Go away!’. It is dangerous to chase away our travelling companion, because no man no woman can advise themselves. I can give advice to others, but not to myself. The Holy Spirit advises me, the angel advises me. This is why we need him. This is not an imaginative doctrine on the angels: no, it is reality. It is what Jesus said, God said: ‘I send an angel before you to guard you, to accompany you on your journey, so you will not go wrong’”.
