"The Scriptures promise that God sends to each one of us a guardian angel.
"What is the guardian angels' role and what is our proper relationship to our angel? . . .
"We do not worship the angels, but we may honor and venerate them as
great and beautiful spirits created by God. . . .
"The guardian angels are sent to guide, guard, protect and teach us.
"In order to facilitate their work we should firstly believe in their existence and presence and secondly, acknowledge their presence and work with them. The angels are gentle and do not interfere. They cannot use force against us and cannot contradict our free will. They may attempt to convince and cajole as part of their protecting role, but they cannot impose their will on us. . . ."
In a recent commentary, Father Dwight Longenecker (parish priest at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church,
Greenville, SC) reflected on the role of guardian angels in our lives and on how we can work with them.
