Ask Your Guardian
'Send Me Your Guardian Angel', is a marvelous book about
Saint Padre Pio's relationship with his Guardian Angel. Saint Pio would
send his angel on errands and have him do all sorts of things that the good
padre could not do easily himself.
I can assure you that each one of us has his or her very own
Guardian Angel. When GOD created us He assigned a guardian angel to watch over
us for our entire life. He helps to protect us from harm and he does everything
he can to prevent us from sinning. I know, because my guardian angel, George,
has saved my life at least three times. Two of those times were within one
I wont go into detail as to exactly what happened as that is
not the purpose of this file. I told a friend about these remarkable events, not
knowing how or why they turned out as they did, and she told me it was my
guardian angel. She added, "If your guardian angel does something for you, you
have to thank him."
Being rather skeptical about the whole thing I asked,
"how do I thank my guardian angel?"
She replied, "You call him by name and
"Okay," I replied, "but how do I know what his name is?"
replied, "Just ask him and he will tell you."
I replied, "what if he doesn't
She said, "He will. It will be the first name that pops into your
Well not believing any of this, I waited until I was alone and then
asked, "OK guardian angel, what is your name?"
But..., the face of my dear departed uncle popped in my mind clear as
a crystal. I thought, 'why did the face of my uncle George appear in my mind
immediately upon my asking that question'? I did not connect it, as I was
waiting for a spoken word which did not come, and not a mental image, and so I
told no one and I promptly forgot about it.
Several months later, there was a Marian conference in a city
nearby, which I attended. I met a lady there who had the apparent ability of
being able to converse with her guardian angel. She would ask her guardian angel
to supply her with the names of guardian angels of other people and he would
tell her, regardless of who or where they were. With much skepticism and
timidity, I conjured up enough nerve to ask her the name of my guardian angel.
She went silent for a few seconds and replied, "He will not answer me right now,
but he will."
About 1/2 hour later, in the middle of a conference speaker's
oration, she blurted out to me, "George, your angels name is George. My angel
just informed me."
Needless to say, the name 'George' did not register with me
until a few moments later when I recalled seeing the face of my uncle George
many months earlier. Needless to say, I almost went into shock, and I suddenly
became an avid believer in guardian angels.
Looking back to those three life
threatening incidents, and by reconstructing exactly what happened, I can truly
say that George had a lot to do with saving my life in each case.
I will say this much about one of those incidents. A male voice
told me three times to move, and the last time very forcefully. Ten seconds
later, I would have had it, had I not moved. There was no other living human
being within hundreds of feet to utter those words to me, and the words I heard
were soft and clear, not like someone yelling at a distance.
Since that all began in the late 1980's, there have been many
other non life threatening incidents, in which I know 'George' had a hand in the
My sole purpose in writing this file is to attest that, yes we
all do have a guardian angel. We should be aware of his presence and realize
that they (some people have more than one) are here to help us. We should call
on them in time of need. GOD willing, they will comfort and protect us.
by all means, thank him.
Thank you, George, thank you...
Thank you dear GOD for
giving me my guardian angel...
