PRAY FOR US
The first Christian theologian to outline a specific scheme for guardian angels was Honorius of Autun in the 12th century. He said that every soul was assigned a guardian angel the moment it was put into a body.
In this episode of The Catholic Talk Show, the guys discuss what the Catholic Church teaches about Guardian Angels.
Guardian Angels are traditionally said to have been created for the sole purpose of serving us in our needs. Yes, God could have chosen to care for us directly without the use of angels, but He didn’t. He chose to create angels as mediators of His grace and care. It’s fair to say that our Guardian Angels love us with a perfect love. They know us, care for us and desire deeply that we become holy. Their primary purpose is to get us to Heaven and to draw us into the heights of sanctity. How do they do this?
In today's episode, we're gonna ask Aquinas about the angels, and in particular about guardian angels. Whether or not we have them. And if we do have them, when are they assigned? Before baptism, at baptism? Can we name our guardian angels? What does the church have to say about that, and if everyone has a guardian angel, did Jesus have a guardian angel? And lots else besides.
Our Holy Guardian Angels, always protecting us, always helping us, always leading us to Jesus. pic.twitter.com/Tg1XPJvlok— bpb (@from4untilate) September 24, 2020

O’ Angel of God, my Holy Guardian, given to me from heaven, enlighten me this day, and save me from all evil. Instruct me in doing good deeds, and set me on the path of salvation. https://t.co/SbHUPItfuW pic.twitter.com/SS2z0F4IAA
