Summary

The presence and the role of the angels in our life is important because they not only help us to journey well, but also show us our destination. Let us not forget these companions along the journey and not be hesitant to ask them to watch over us.

Transcript

“Behold! I send an angel before you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place which I have prepared.” They are the special helpers that the Lord promises to his people and to us who travel along the path of life. Life is a journey along which we must be helped by companions, by protectors, by compasses against danger and from the snares we might encounter along the way. And the Lord says, “Have respect for their presence.” The angel has authority to guide us. Listen to him. Listen to the inspirations, which are always from the Holy Spirit. But I want to ask you a question. Do you speak with your angel? Do you know the name of your angel? Do you listen to your angel? Do you allow yourself to be led by him along the path, or do you need to be pushed to move? Our angel is not only with us. He also sees God the Father. He is in relationship with him. He is the daily bridge, from the moment we arise to the moment we go to bed. He accompanies us, and is a link between us and God the Father. The angel is the daily gateway to transcendence, to the encounter with the Father. That is, the angel helps me to go forward because he looks upon the Father and he knows the way. Let us not forget the companions along the journey.
