Guardian Angels

I've always wondered what my angel would look like if I could see him, I've made a couple of drawings.  I don't believe he looks like what I imagine.

Some saints saw their angels, like St. Catherine Laboure, St. Angela Meici, St. Gemma, St. Pio; I suppose many saints were able to see them.

I've never seen him but I have experienced his protection.

I think angels are quite detached - or free from attachment.  They love us of course, but it is a pure and chaste love - a supernatural love.  To think we are loved by such a being.  Loved and protected and directed and guided - without any attempt to control or interfere with our freedom.  That is a love I never want to be separated from.


“My guardian angel, you always behold the Holy Trinity. You are deeply loved by the divine Majesty. You know how desperately I need the grace of God to know what He wants me to do and the strength I need to surrender my stubborn will to His divine will. How I need your powerful intercession with the Almighty. I trust you will hear my prayer and I am confident that with your help I will live my life as a sacrifice of myself to God and thus merit to join you in that celestial glory where you are waiting for me. Amen.” - Fr. Hardon Archives  


  1. A beautiful prayer and one I will copy and recite from now on. Thank you, Terry. ^^

    I always wonder what my guardian angel looks like too but I would also like to wonder as to his name. When I think of what his name might be, I would like to think his name is Joshua. <3

    1. Hey! Yaya, I thought you were following my lead and taking a break from the Catholic internet? C'mon, you're like my sobriety buddy from AA. If you fall, I fall. LOL


      I think if you saw your angel he would look like a geometric representation of a pure intellect. At the center a kind of cube with an astonishing light, and then a kind of polyhedron surrounding the cube, all a little bigger than a basketball.

    2. Good morning, Mr. Wolfe!

      Please do not misquote me! Haha! Joking of course. I meant that I will take a break from hot-spots of ill repute and disdain. ;p I will and am avoiding sites that tend to throw bombs in all directions and since I am too sleepy yet, I ain't naming names.

      My precious guardian angel has been assigned to lead me to a more prayerful attitude for all matters of greater importance than to be upset over online Catholic squabbles.
      I am however, allowed to visit Terry's blog (but to refrain from squabbling here) as his is refuge and encouragement for the journey. ^^

      Count me out as a sobriety AA buddy as I enjoy strawberry ale way too much and fell off the wagon long ago!

      A toast to you and yours and to your guardian angel on this most auspicious of days!

  2. Lately I have been missing Mother Angelica very much - she never minced words, spiritual direction seemed to be her biggest gift, among so many. I recall many remarks she would make about the angels, and about her own angel: she gave 'him' an unusual name, which I cannot recall.
    When I can stand it, I review my past life and deeply apologize to my own guardian be witness to such acts of mine - even today !
    How consoling that we have been given such for friendship and companionship ! Whenever I leave home I ask especially that he tenderly care for and guard my cat.....

  3. I think mine is named Bud the Weiser.
