Reflection for Saturday:
Your guardian angel wants to help you more

guardian angelWe all need supernatural help, right? Every day, there’s probably some type of challenge that you face, as do I, that really is beyond our own ability to handle all by ourselves or even by the human means of the help of friends or family.

Every day, there are ways that God wants to provide help, and he sometimes makes it so that he’s the only Person we can turn to. There’s no other option, sometimes. Although, do we really recognize that? Oftentimes, when we face troubles, we just get angry, frustrated, impatient. We sometimes feel so desperate that we take measures into our own hands, making decisions that are not holy or, when they’re not sinful, our decisions are not God’s best will for us.

Every day, we face situations that needs help from heaven. I discussed this in my Footsteps to Heaven episode called Helpers from Heaven. In this podcast, I shared stories from my own life that illustrate the helpers from heaven that God provides to us.

God assigned a guardian angel to you at the moment you were conceived in your mother’s womb. And we also have the holy Saints who have gone on before us who are now our helpers from heaven.

2021 October’s Rosary Campaign

the rosaryWho are you praying for because they left the Catholic Faith? We all know people who believe the lies of the Devil. Our loved ones come to mind first. Are we also praying for politicians, school teachers, co-workers, church leaders and others who claim to be Catholic but are living and proclaiming what goes against the teachings of scripture and the Church Magisterium?

In light of everything that’s happening in our world today and what might soon happen, we must-must-must do many prayers and penances and sacrifices for the unfaithful. Join our annual Holy Rosary Campaign by filling out the form @ gnm.org/prayers/rosary-campaign.

You might also want to use our special adaptation of the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary for Conversions @ gnm.org/prayers/pray-the-rosary/luminous-mysteries.

As you know October is the Month of the Holy Rosary. We can expect many blessings from God when we offer up our daily Rosary for those who have been unfaithful to the Lord.
