Have you noticed the angel on your shoulder
watching over you each day?
Perhaps you were too busy to notice
how the angel takes care of you
You might think you are self-sufficient
and would never need an angel’s help
Take some time to reconsider
if you have any doubt, just pray!
Every visible thing in this world is put in the charge of an angel. St. Augustine
Angels are spirits, but it is not because they are spirits that they are angels. They become angels when they are sent. For the name angel refers to their office, not their nature. You ask the name of this natures, it is spirit; you ask its office, it is that of an angel, which is a messenger. – Saint Augustine
I believe we are free, within limits, and yet there is an unseen hand, a guiding angel, that somehow, like a submerged propeller, drives us on.- Rabindranath Tagore
A Christian Prayer
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those
who work, or watch, or weep this
night, and give your angels charge
over those who sleep. Tend the sick,
Lord Christ; give rest to the weary,
bless the dying, soothe the suffering,
pity the afflicted, shield the joyous
and all for your love’s sake.
