02_Angels’ Relationship to Us, Premium Content

Category: Angels Tag: , , ,

Angels are messengers from God to humans. What does it mean that “angel is the name of the office”? If each angel is its own species according to its task, what do angels do? How many are there? How do we know that each of us has a guardian angel?

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Particular angels have responsibilities toward specific nations and geographical locations. Have you thought to add your prayers to the prayers and works of the angels guarding and protecting America, and the state, town, and parish in which you live? 

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Sts. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, Holy Archangels, pray for us. All you Holy Angels, pray for us. Angel of God, 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. Amen. +
