and Love your neighbor as yourself,
then your Love will evangelize the world

Honoring The Holy Guardian Angels
“Each and every member of the faithful has a Guardian Angel to protect, guard and guide them through life.” –Basil the Great
“They are a proof that heaven denies us nothing that assists us. These celestial spirits have been place at our sides to protect us, instruct us and to guide us.” –Bernard of Clairvaux
The counsels and suggestions from our Guardian Angels come from God for our benefit. They are constantly with us. They read our thoughts. They see God always as they stand by us.
Do you know your guardian angel by name? It will be revealed to you if you ask…
Dear Alexandria, thank you for faithfully protecting my life from evil.
Be my crimson arch and colorful rainbow, warmly rejoicing in your golden wisdom.
“Keeping peace within myself is a daily challenge. But, if I remember that “the kingdom of heaven is within me” (Luke 1:21), peace will be sustained for the benefit of anyone around me. Being good and gentle to myself and others is naturally pleasing. Yet, being able to maintain peace around others who challenge us is a more praiseworthy grace to live by.” –Thomas a Kempis
How goodly is God to give us such a friend to enlighten the mind.
“Dare to declare who we are.
It is not far from the shores of silence to the boundaries of speech.
The path is not long, but the way is deep.
You must not only walk there,
You must be prepared to leap.”
–Saint Hildegard of Bingen, mystic, composer and botanist (1098-1179)
The more I love, the more I live with ease,
The more I give the more I receive unexpectedly,
The more I forgive the more I am liberated.
The more…more envelops me with Goodness!
“God sees all that is – even when evil confronts us.” –Psalm 139
“Longing” Painting by Orit Martin
Something Golden to Think About
We spend our lives searching for home
We grow and develop in fellowship with other people
We all are longing for heaven
“There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible — magic to make the sanest person go mad.” –Homer, The Iliad
