Quote/s of the Day – 2 October – The Holy Guardian Angel
“See that you despise not
one of these little ones,
for I say to you
that their Angels in Heaven,
always see the face of My Father.”
This will make your angel happy.
When sorrows and misfortunes,
physical or spiritual, afflict you,
turn to your Guardian Angel,
with strong trust
and he will help you.”
St John Bosco (1815-1888)
“O Angel of God, whom God
hath appointed to be my Guardian,
enlighten and protect,
direct and govern me.
(Indulgence of one hundred days each time.
Plenary once a month if said daily)
My Oldest Friend
By John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
My oldest friend, mine from the hour
When first I drew my breath,
My faithful friend, that shall be mine,
Unfailing, till my death….
Mine when I stand before the Judge,
And mine, if spared to stay
Within the golden furnace, till
My sin is burn’d away.
And mine, O Brother of my soul,
When my release shall come,
Thy gentle arms shall lift me then,
Thy wings shall waft me home.”
