This past week the Church celebrated the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. On Friday we celebrated the Holy Guardian Angels.
We all long to know that we are cared for, that things will work out in the end. We are receive the messages from angels that new things will happen for the good, that we are protected, loved and cared for as individuals. Even though we know nothing about angels, we cannot see them or touch them, the idea of these Godly creatures are fascinating to the human spirit.
Life is pretty messy and surprisingly difficult. Sometimes we may feel so incredibly distant from God and even from those we love. We turn to the creatures of spirit that in the scriptures have shown the world mercy, protection and have been a voice of fearlessness.
We reflect this week on our closeness to God, how God cares for us and how we are given a new chance when things do not turn out as we had planned.
Jesus said, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.” (Matthew 18)
