Guardian Angels

From today's Gospel:
"See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in Heaven their angels always behold the face of My Father Who is in Heaven." (Matthew 18:10)
Little ones. That's us!

From the Saint Pius V Catechism:

"By God's providence angels have been entrusted with the office of guarding the human race and of accompanying every human being so as to preserve him from any serious dangers...Our Heavenly Father has placed over each of us an angel under whose protection and vigilance we are."

Saint Josemaria Escriva writes:

"Have confidence in your Guardian Angel. Treat him as a lifelong friend -- that is what he is -- and he will render you a thousand services in the ordinary affairs of each day."
