When I was a child I remember that we were taught to pray the guardian angel prayer. In fact, up to this day, I still include that at the end of my prayers. And since it’s the feast day of the Holy Guardian Angels, I would like to share with you some stories why I personally believe in them.
My mother shared that when I was still a baby, she left me on the bed sleeping. She had to go out for a while because she needed to do something. Before she left me, she put pillows on my sides so I won’t fell off the floor. When she returned, she was shocked to see the bed empty. She found me on the floor still peacefully sleeping and it’s like nothing happened. No injuries or bruises at all. I think the same happened with my nephew when he fell from the second floor of their house. His lab tests showed negative from all injuries or complications. In both instances, no one was with us when we fell off. So I thought, maybe it’s a blessing in disguise because it made our guardian angels caught us and made us safe from any harm without anyone seeing them.
I was on a graveyard shift at work and I had to walk from EDSA Ortigas to our office. The walking area was not well-lighted and only a few people were walking. There were three men on the other end and I felt something was off so I decided to walk faster than usual. I noticed that they kept looking on my left and right side. When I walked past them, I looked back and saw that no one was walking behind me. That’s when I realized that maybe my guardian angel saved me again from possible harm. Later that month, my manager learned about my route going to work. He reminded me to be careful because one of my female colleagues became a victim of holduppers. When he said that, I got chills because I thought I could have been a victim too if not for my guardian angel.
Before I end this post, I just want to include here the guardian angel prayer. Let’s pray together! 🙂
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love
commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.
How about you? Do you believe in guardian angels too? Do you have any stories to share?
