The Scriptures make frequent reference to angels coming to the aid of men and women. Angels journey together with the Church in her mission of salvation and at the same time travel side by side with her members; all human beings have their own guardian angel to guard, protect and enlighten them. The Catechism of the Catholic Church proclaims that “From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their [angel’s] watchful care and intercession. Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life” (# 336). The feast day of our Guardian Angels is October 2.
