Join Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox as they lead us on a journey with our Guardian Angels! These spiritual beings are depicted in various art, statues, cards, and in stories. Pope John Paul II said that the truth about our Guardian Angels is a truth which must be profoundly important for every Christian.
During our journey, you will hear about:
- The purpose and role of the Guardian Angels
- How they can assist us?
- Address whether or not we should name our Guardian Angel
- Hear stories of people who had experience with their Guardian Angel

Jewel for the Journey:
“When tempted, invoke your angel. He is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him; he trembles and flees at the sight of your guardian angel.” – St. John Bosco
Traditional Prayer To Our Guardian Angel:
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day (or night) be at my side, to light, to guard,
to rule and guide. Amen
Padre Pio’s Prayer to the Guardian Angel:
O my Holy Guardian Angel, care for my soul and my body.
Enlighten my mind that I may better know the Lord my God and love Him with all my heart.
Watch over me when I pray so I won’t give into life’s distractions.
Sustain me with your counsel to live as a righteous Christian,
and help me to do good works with a generous heart…
Stay beside me at all times; never stop watching over me until I am called back to the Father’s house,
where we will praise our great God together for all eternity. Amen
