Happy Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels! What joy to honor our dearest and most faithful friend…and what wisdom in these words from the saints:

Make yourself familiar with the Angels, and behold them frequently in spirit. Without being seen, they are present with you.

St. Francis de Sales

Beside each believer stands an Angel as protector and shepherd, leading him to life.

St. Basil the Great

When tempted, invoke your Angel. he is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him: He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel.

St. John Bosco

I bind to myself today the power in the love of the Seraphim, in the obedience of the Angels, in the ministration of the Archangels, in the hope of Resurrection unto reward, in the prayers of the Patriarchs, in the predictions of the Prophets, in the preaching of the Apostles, in the faith of the Confessors, in the purity of the holy Virgins, in the deeds of Righteous men.

St. Patrick of Ireland


Thought I’d share a “sweet” little craft idea from Hershey’s…although I’ve adapted it to suit this feast day, rather than Christmas.

What you’ll need:

Hershey’s Kisses or Hugs (I used traditional Kisses and Special Dark)

Pony beads

Construction paper, foil, wrapping paper…your choice (I found a roll of foil leaves at the Dollar tree and trimmed them to look like wings…you may design your own or follow suit!)

Hot glue gun

Take one Kiss and put a drop of hot glue on the very tip.  Place pony bead on top.  Cut out wings and glue to the back of the Kiss.

That’s it!   Guardian Angel kisses.  They’re really quite adorable…and so very easy to put together!

Enjoy the day, and may the Holy Angels guard and protect you…
