The Guardian Angels: Our Heavenly Companions
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.
