DAY 9: THE GUARDIAN ANGEL
From the Acts of the Apostles (5: 17-20)
Then the high priest rose up and all his companions, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and, filled with jealousy, laid hands upon the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night, the angel of the Lord opened the doors of the prison, led them out, and said, “Go and take your place in the temple area, and tell the people everything about this life”.
From the Writings of Padre Pio
May your good guardian angel always watch over you; be your guide on the rugged path of life; always keep you in the grace of Jesus and sustain you with his hands so that you may not stumble on a stone; protect you under his wings from all the snares of the world, the devil and the flesh ... Always have him present to your mind's eye.Often remember the presence of this angel; thank him, pray to him, always keep him good company... Turn to him in times of supreme anxiety and you will experience his beneficial help.(Letters III, 15 July 1915)
Take a moment to reflect & state your intention
Loving Saint Pio, during your life you had a particular devotion to the angels, and a very special devotion to your Guardian Angel. Help us to „understand and appreciate this great gift that God in his excessive love‟ wants to give everyone, by entrusting each person to his particular guidance and protection.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
