Feast: Guardian Angels

"From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their (the angels) watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life. Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united to God."
- from the Catechism of the Catholic Church; 336.

I'm so thankful for God's gift a protector, shepherd, helper for each one of us. This was a gift I never thought much about until I had children.

And boy, do my kids keep their angels hopping ... especially Bam-Bam. I know his particular GA is ever aware of just exactly what he has gotten up to. The fact that we've yet to need a run to the ER or the orthopedic surgeon or even an unscheduled doc visit is proof of the pudding!

Today we used the Guardian Angel prayer for copywork and while I read St. Patrick's Summer, the kiddoes worked on their very own GA's ... I figure I will post the hand-written prayers and angels near the kids' beds.
