"Take courage and pray; your guardian angel will also pray for you, and your prayers will be answered."- Saint John Bosco
Beside each believer stands an Angel as protector and shepherd, leading him to life.-St. Basil the Great
See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes. ~Exodus 23:20-22
"The servants of Christ are protected by invisible, rather than visible, beings. But if these guard you, they do so because they have been summoned by your prayer." -- St. Ambrose.
"When tempted, invoke your angel. He is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him; he trembles and flees at the sight of your guardian angel."- Saint John Bosco
"Be good. This will make your angel happy. When sorrows and misfortunes, physical or spiritual, afflict you, turn to your guardian angel with strong trust and he will help you."- Saint John Bosco
The Angels take great pleasure in helping us with our enterprises, when they are in accordance with God's will.~St. John Vianney
The Holy Angels seek in every possible way to share with us this immense ocean of love and happiness which they themselves enjoy. Their generosity knows no bounds. This is a truth that we must do our best to understand fully and clearly. Were a rich man to say to us, “Ask me for everything you wish and I will most readily give it to you,” how happy we should be! Certainly we would not hesitate to ask for all we need. This is exactly what the Angels say to us: “Ask us and we will give you a share of all our treasures, all our graces, all our happiness, and we will give you some of all we have.” Their goodness and generosity are immense…If only we knew them better and loved them more, and were more docile to their constant whisperings, our happiness would be unspeakably great.
If some rare chance brings us into the presence of a King or Queen, we salute the royal personage and feel flattered if our salute is returned with a gracious smile, or with a few words, and still more if the royal person stops to speak with us.
We meet the Angels, not by chance, not seldom, but every day. They see us, they love us and repay every attention we show them with a substantial return. Yet so many make no account of them! What lamentable ignorance!
If we but say, “Holy Angels here present, I honor and love you and give thanks to God for all the glory He has given you.” Every one of these hundreds of Angels will hear and receive with pleasure our greeting and will repay us with a special mark of friendship, for the Angels never do things by halves. They are not like us, poor mortals, they never forget and they never grow cold. When once they are our friends, they are our friends forever.
We can also give them immense pleasure by offering mass or our good works in their honor and thanking God for all the beauty and holiness and glory that He has given them. If we do so, they will repay us a thousand times over." Extracted from "All About the Angels" by Father Paul O'Sullivan Tan Books
