Calling all angels

Faith Focus for the Week
Who are my companions in following Christ? How do we help one another act with faith?

Sometimes stewardship seems difficult, demanding. The good steward remembers that he or she is not alone in the efforts to live as a Christian disciple. In union with the Lord, we have the angels. Oct. 2 marks the feast of the Guardian Angels. The guardian angels are not for kids only!

In “Angels of God: The Bible, the Church, and the Heavenly Hosts,” author Mike Aquilina offers the following suggestions for interacting with the guardian angels:
• Check in with your guardian angel regularly through prayer and conversation.
• Greet others’ guardian angels (especially your children’s) when they walk in a room.
• Before embarking on a journey, ask your guardian angel to keep you safe.
• Before a difficult personal or professional encounter, call upon your guardian angel and the other’s guardian angel to help you communicate more clearly with one another.
• Pray the traditional guardian angel prayer or other prayers to guardian angels. When we remember to call upon them, the angels will help us harvest spiritual fruit.
