Feast of the Guardian Angels

Today is the feast of the Guardian Angels. One of my favorite feasts in the liturgical calendar.

Don’t forget to say a prayer to the angel God assigned to you!

I still say the prayer everyday that I learned as a child:

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here, ever this day (night), be at my side to light, to guard, to rule and to guide. Amen.

“How great the dignity of the soul, since each one has from his birth an angel commissioned to guard it.” -Saint Jerome
