A guardian angel

A guardian angel is a type of angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person, group or nation. Belief in tutelary beings can be traced throughout all antiquity. The idea of angels that guard over people played a major role in Ancient Judaism. In Christianity, the hierarchy of angels was extensively developed in the 5th century by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. The theology of angels and tutelary spirits has undergone many changes since the 5th century. The belief is that guardian angels serve to protect whichever person God assigns them to.

An angel represents the spirit who conveys God’s will to man. An angel constitutes a heavenly messenger, who keeps watch over us and protects us from danger by way of caution or defense. An angel is always ready to accompany us. An angel takes us under his wings.

Without knowing it, every one of us has a lifeguard all the time. We call it “accidental”: a chance meeting, it is a pure chance. We make a chance acquaintance or a fluke or a lucky goal. We can be persons who have been also involved in a casualty or contingency, so to speak in an accident, but, thank God, we got off with no more than a fright, because our Guardian Angel has been with us. It looks like a miracle, sometimes, if we still remember the incident, being scared to death that time.

The times of anxiety, fear and darkness – everybody knows them from their own experiences. Especially now, it is necessary to have deep respect for the superior wisdom – an act of God.

He wants us to grow during these bad times by being patient. We have no other chance, whether we like it or not. But try to talk to your Guardian Angel. Yes, you can do it. He listens to you any time you call him, because he is willing to listen to him.

Means to say: pray and talk to somebody in your surroundings, who is willing to listen to you. Just open your eyes, you will find him. Such persons will never mention any excuses: they are always there for you. Your Guardian Angel is sad, if you don’t need him. He is happy, if you ask for help and advice.

Everybody has a  Guardian Angel” the children around us; people we love very much, even those people who might put us into a lot of trouble and enjoy torturing us with arrogance, ignorance and unbelievable excuses; people, we miss much just right in this moment.

We have many things to do and we are conscious of our duties. We feel sometimes that they crush and overwhelm us. Suddenly, our last hour comes but we know in our heart of hearts that our own Guardian Angel lives.

And, very important: check it out: maybe you are the Guardian Angel of someone in your surroundings. Then you really have a great responsibility. Carry it but also enjoy it, because it is a great and wonderful task – and it needs a lot of will power. If we know how to dig, we will also understand how to develop an inexhaustible source.
