GUARDIAN ANGEL

‘An Angel of peace, a guide and guardian of our souls and bodies, let us ask of the Lord…”

A petition from the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

ICON DESCRIPTION. This beautiful icon is based on earlier traditional Byzantine icons of the Guardian Angel. An Icon is meant to “teach.” This icon is a perfect example. The guardian angel as our “guide” looks directly at us into our heart and soul. The angel in its right hand presents us with the “cross” through which we are freed from sin and our souls are saved. As our “guardian” Its left hand grasps a “sword” ready to defend us from temptation and evils. The icon frame is a leaf motif representing the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Angels are God’s special messengers between God and man!

Angels and the concept of a “guardian angel” appear in the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus and the Psalms. God said to Moses “"my angel shall go before thee” – the rabbis in the Talmud explain “before each man goes thousands of angels crying make way for the image of God!” "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;" (Cf. Psalm 33:8 and 34:5).

The Church, both east and west through God’s revelations in both the Old and New Testament, teaches that each of us has Guardian Angel. One who stands for us before the face of God. Our Guardian Angel is our companion in life –our spiritual “kin” - alerting us of evil and directing our thoughts and actions to the will of God. Our Guardian Angel will stand with us on judgment day.

In the Slavic Eastern Christian traditions, your “birthday” is called your “angel day.”

WHEN IS THE “GUARDIAN ANGEL” FEAST DAY – IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!

In the Western church the Feast of the Guardian Angels is Oct 2nd.
