The Feast of Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael was on September 29th, and today is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. A good reminder of the soldiers who labor and fight all around us, and who are sent to serve us (see Hebrews 1:14, Matthew 18:10, Psalm 34:7). Thanks for the angels, Lord, who do much more than we know!!
“And so the angels are here; they are at your side; they are with you, present on your behalf. They are here to protect you and to serve you. But even if it is God who has given them this charge, we must nonetheless be grateful to them for the great love with which they obey and come to help us in our great need.” -St. Bernard
