Devotion to the Holy Angels

Angels are real. They appear throughout the Bible, from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelation. Because we can’t see them, we can easily forget them. In this meditation we pray about how to increase our devotion to the angels, using texts of Scripture, St Josemaria Escriva and St John Vianney, to consider:

  • The Church’s teaching on the angels in the Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • The angels’ presence surrounding the tabernacle and in the Mass
  • St Raphael as an example of the protection and many services of our guardian angel
  • St Gabriel, as a messenger who passes on to us inspirations from God
  • St Michael, who defeats Satan and who protects us in times of temptation

Devotion to our Guardian Angel

We all have a guardian angel but how often do we show devotion to him, ask him to help us or thank him for his help? In this meditation, we consider:

  • Scriptural references to guardian angels
  • Statements of Church fathers, saints and Popes on the angels
  • Ways in which guardian angels help us
  • True stories of the intervention of guardian angels
  • How to grow in devotion to our guardian angel
