Inspiring Quotes From Guardian Angels

Saint Thomas Aquinas

Tertullian

"The angels as the guardians of men are set over men as instructors and monitors. This shows the relationship that is to exist between them. Man's attitude is to be one of obedience and subjection. He is to follow the lead of the angels, and consequently, some reverence is already implied in the very relationship that exists between man and angel."  

Irish Blessing
