“Angels are a proof that Heaven denies us nothing that assists us…these celestial spirits have been placed at our sides to protect us, instruct us, and to guide us.” –Saint Bernard of Clairvaux
What marvels are assigned to each guardian angel given charge over a person’s lifetime. They are pure messengers with powerful mystery to stand by us. They remind us how much God loves everyone.
Praise be bright and holy angels!
Concluding Angel Short Story
I beckon my guardian angel Alexandria’s guidance for everything in my life…in this instance she did not fail me…
April 10, 2010…Driving home from work, after praying the rosary, I was impacted by a dreadful screeching sound. I saw my car rising into air while simultaneously hearing a sweet voice saying, “Patricia, let’s just do this together.” I echoed a mental “yes” as the car spun once, twice, and at a third turn I could no longer hold the steering wheel…forging into this space, the car traveled on the roof’s edge, metal scraping down the highway for what seemed to be eternal, gravity finally flipping the car onto the pavement, wheels still spinning, I found myself hanging upside down in this pure grace moment of silence…musing…I am still alive! Alexandria, you did this for me?
A young man pulling me out of the wreck had run a stop sign, repeating, “I’m so sorry, please forgive me..I nodded yes. The next voice, a paramedic, said, “young lady, you are very lucky today.” Smiling back at him, “no luck, sir, it was my guardian angel Alexandria who saved me…she always places God before my eyes and reach!
Thank You, God! Angels do protect us from harm and evil.
I’m delighted you have come back…
Lanetta was another special “angel” friend, a dedicated nurse. Sitting next to her in the pew, I sensed her deep sorrow as she sobbed uncontrollably, so I wrapped my arm around her tiny shoulders whispering, “Jesus will help you.” We remained clutched together as everyone exited the church. When we parted, she said, “Thank you, you feel like an angel, you remind me of my mother – O how I miss her”…that is how our intense friendship began.
We met often dining out. On one such occasion she brought me a magnificent angel doll which I immediately named her Alexandria, my guardian angel. Lanetta was often troubled saying that her life had turned out badly. We spoke for long hours about God and His unfathomable mercy. We would often pray to dispel her anxieties…two days later, her husband called…she died September 9, 2013. Struck with devastation, my prayers increased for her eternal rest. I begged God to give me a sign that Lanetta was happily reunited with her parents. With my eyes closed, tears streaming down my face, I noticed a bright silhouette near the altar wondering, “Is that you, Lanetta? I miss you so much.” She answered me with a glowing countenance. Yes! to this day I am convinced it was Lanetta. Amazing grace flows when you BELIEVE!
Please stay tuned for my final angel story on tomorrow…and meanwhile may you catch a glimpse for “All Things Angels” around you.
ANGELS SHORT STORY
Do you believe in Angels? I certainly do…may this series of short stories delight your senses with awe…
Joan is a longtime friend. I met her at church, her presence attracted me as she bowed towards the sanctuary in an aura of reverence that I yearned for myself. She shared about her niece who is a hidden visionary bedridden in frail illness who oftentimes converses with Jesus. I believed her and quickly asked Joan if her niece could reveal the names of my family’s guardian angels. Months passed, while at church again, Joan slipped a piece of paper into my hand where the names were written…how thrilling! To this day I honor these guardian angels daily and especially when something urgent or dreadful unfolds.
My next encounter with Angels came through Mother Angelica as she described the Nine Choirs of Angels…further captivated by their decreeing duties, most especially the Dominions who disperse weather conditions. At the roar of thunder or lightning strike, I often say, “O God, please give us your mercy!” You see, our guardian angels help us prepare for our eternal destination. They always keep sight of God for our personal intentions. They forever protect us so we may achieve our individual destiny.
Angels continue to come my way. Once, my husband came home with a large box from a yard sale. “Here,” he said, “these are for you,” quickly tearing off the newspaper wrapping, I discovered three layers of angel figurines made of metal, wax, ceramic and crystal in various shapes and colors…my heart rejoiced at this treasure. In time, I have passed them along as gifts and retained a few to keep.
Let’s pause for now as I continue posting more angel stories…hoping you will come back for more…

Dear Alexandria, thank you for faithfully protecting my life from evil.
Archangel Michael by Jean Pierre Rousselet
Hail The Archangels
May GABRIEL be with me on Sunday, and the power of the king of heaven
MICHAEL on Monday I speak of, my mind is set on him
If it be Tuesday, RAPHAEL I mention, until the end comes for my help
May URIEL be with me on Wednesday, the abbot with high nobility
SANIEL on Thursday I speak of, against the swift waves of the sea
On Friday the day of the second fast, RUMIEL, a clear blessing I have loved
May PANCHEL be with me on Saturday, as long as I am in this yellow colored world
May sweet Mary deliver me from strangers
May the Trinity save me from every hurt, from every danger
