 Our Description


 The Guardian Angels reveals one of God's "secrets" about how He guides and governs the world:  by assigning a Guardian Angel to watch over each person, diocese, town, parish, etc.  It explains the many services these blessed spirits perform for us--protecting souls and bodies in ways both miraculous and "ordinary."  It also shows how the Catholic teachings on the Guardian Angels are gfound in Sacred Scripture and in writings of Church. The book relates fascinating stories about the Guardian Angels from the lives and writings of Saints including St. Catherine of Siena, Pope St. Gregory the Great, St. Gemma Galgani, St. Frances of Rome, St. Francis de Sales, St. Margaret Mary, St. Gertrude the Great and others. It also shows how the Angels accompany us to Holy Communion, how they defend us against the demons, how they deal with mortal sinners, etc.-thus explaining things that most Catholics have never even thought about. Also included here are favorite prayers and devotions to the Guardian Angels, plus a special chapter for Catholic parents.

All in all, this is a small book with a gigantic message, a book to re-awaken souls to one of the most wonderful works of God's Providence-The Guardian Angels.

Patron Of: Authors, Confessors, Congo, Deaf, Journalists, Press, Teachers, Writers

    Born in a castle to a well-placed family, his parents intended that he become a lawyer, enter politics, and carry on the family line and power.

Turned down a wealthy French bishopric. Helped found the Order of the Visitation with Saint Jeanne de Chantal. Prolific correspondent. Doctor of the Church.
