Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels


October 2 is the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels. Every one of the faithful has an angel standing at his side who directs his or her life.  As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, "From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession." (CCC 336).

Jesus told His disciples, "See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I say to you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 18:10).

Angels are pure spirits. “With their whole beings the angels are servants and messengers of God. Because they "always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven" they are the "mighty ones who do His word, hearkening to the voice of His word." (CCC 329).

 

God’s love commits us to our Guardian angels who teach us, guard us, rule us and guide us. Let us be mindful and obedient to them when they speak to us in the voice of our consciences. We pray in the Guardian Angels Prayer,

Angel of God, my guardian dear,

to whom God's love commits me here,

ever this day be at my side,

to light and guard, to rule and guide.

Amen.

Novena of Holy Communions

Jesus King of All Nations promises that if you offer a Novena of Holy Communions in His honor, He will “bid an angel of each of the Nine Choirs, one with each Holy Communion, to guard this soul for the rest of its life on this earth.” There are nine choirs of angels which are nine groups named in order of their hierarchy: Seraphim; Cherubim; Thrones; Dominations; Principalities; Powers; Virtues; Archangels and Angels.

This Novena of Holy Communions consists of offering nine consecutive Holy Communions in honor of Jesus King of All Nations. Jesus said, “I desire that the faithful souls who embrace this devotion to Me… make a Novena of Holy Communions. They therefore shall offer me nine (9) consecutive Holy Communions, and go to Confession during this Novena, if possible, in honor of Me as ‘Jesus, King of All Nations’.” (Journal 220).

Jesus indicated that by “consecutive”, He meant nine Communions, uninterrupted, one after another, that the souls would receive. They need not be on nine calendar days in a row, just each Communion received, one after the other.

The powerful and unprecedented effects of this Novena were shown to Jesus’ “servant” in a vision. She saw Jesus gazing up to Heaven. Nine times He gave a command and an angel came to earth. Jesus explained: My daughter, for those souls who will offer me [this] devotion I will bid an angel of each of the Nine Choirs, one with each Holy Communion, to guard this soul for the rest of its life on this earth.”

Jesus wants us to pray the Novena for others, and explains its necessity at this time. “This Novena may be prayed with its promises for another soul, and that soul will also receive additional angelic protection. I urge My faithful ones to offer Me this Novena again and again so that I may continue to send down My holy Angels for the protection and assistance of other souls who cannot do this for themselves. In the end-times the power of the enemy has greatly increased. I see how greatly My children are in need of My protection.”

In His great generosity, Jesus granted that, in addition to the angelic protection, one may have a separate, unrelated intention for this Novena. He promised: “What they ask for in this Novena, if it be according to My Most Holy Will, I will surely grant it. Let these souls ask from Me without reservation.”
