Feast of the Guardian Angels

Today the Church celebrates the Feast of the Guardian Angels.

The scriptural basis for our understanding of guardian angels is found in Jesus' words in Matthew 18:10...

See that you do not despise one of these little ones,
for I say to you that their angels in heaven
always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

And here's the Opening Prayer of today's Mass:

God our Father,
in your loving providence
you send your holy angels to watch over us.
Hear our prayers,
defend us always by their protection
and let us share your life with them for ever.
We as this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
