26 - Our Guardian Angel, a Faithful Friend!

Author

Ange gardien, ami fidèle!

Dear Friend,

Bouquet de fleurs

Mathilda is going to join a classmate not very far from her place. While walking at a good pace, she is already thinking about this meeting when she starts crossing the street which, at that hour, is normally quiet and where she has priority. Suddenly, however, as though it came out of nowhere, a car is heading directly towards her. Its driver doesn’t seem to have seen her. Taken by surprise, Mathilda hesitates, then, begins to walk faster to reach the sidewalk, still a fair distance away. The car doesn’t slow down and is coming dangerously close to Mathilda who begins to run, certain that she will get hit. Is this a careless or reckless driver, or someone who felt ill or faint?

As she runs, Mathilda can clearly sense that the car’s bumper and lights are just a few centimeters from her thigh when, suddenly, an unexplained phenomenon occurs; she feels herself being lifted up by an extraordinary force. Her feet are no longer touching the ground and she is thrown on the sidewalk against the wall of the building, whereas the car speeds on. Some people witness the accident.

Mathilda is unhurt, with not a single scratch! She was really lucky, but this incident scared her and she feels rather shaky. A very kind lady has her sit down on a bench nearby and offers to call her mother so that she can come and get her. As she waits, Mathilda realizes that, on her own, she could not have made such an extraordinary leap which thrust her on the sidewalk a good distance from the street.

Ange et fleur

Suddenly, she becomes conscious of the fact that she has just experienced the protection of her guardian angel. What an extraordinary gift God gave us when He entrusted us to the protection of a guardian angel from the very moment of our birth! This episode in Mathilda’s life might seem to belong in an imaginary novel. And yet! The guardian angel is a marvelous reality.

One day, when she was asked what name should be given to a baby, Marie-Paule “saw” a being all in white next to the newborn. A short time later, she “was informed” that what she had “perceived” was the child’s little angel who would accompany it throughout its life. The same is true for you who have, at your side, this good angel who is ready to help you, counsel you and guide you.

In certain circumstances, in keeping with divine designs, our angel can protect the body, as it was the case for Mathilda, but its mission and its interventions are especially intended for our salvation and our spiritual development. Thus, this angelic advisor intervenes with much love in order to inspire us with the right thing to say or do, or to help us in making important decisions, etc.

The more we obey him, the more we advance towards God along a path of peace and light by developing an intimate relationship with Jesus, Mary and Marie-Paule. On the other hand, if we choose to follow the influence of the bad angel, we will travel along a dark path which draws us away from Love.

Speaking to a group of young people one day, Marie-Paule urged them to be attentive to their angel, adding that if they got married later and had children, the angel would still be there to inform them, assist them and enlighten them for the good of their children.

How pleasant and reassuring it is to think of this loving presence which desires our good and can also pass on our messages to God, to other angels or to saints if we ask it of him.

Many things still remain to be discovered concerning guardian angels. In the meantime, we know that our guardian angel is a magnificent spiritual being, tall, intelligent and powerful. This ought to stimulate our love, our trust and our gratitude.

– “You know, mom, since that car almost hit me, I often think of my guardian angel and I’m inclined to talk to him.

– “That’s normal, my dear. That incident made you realize his invisible but very active presence next to you. So as not to forget him, you must get into the habit of talking to him often, as you would with a faithful friend. I pray to your guardian angel and to your dad’s every day so that they protect you.”

With a start, Mathilda said: “Mom, do you remember what you said to me before I left the house? You said: ‘Be careful when you cross the street!’ And yet, you don’t usually say that.”

The mother and daughter looked at each other, astonished. They could not see them, but angel wings were surrounding them, and in their hearts, they felt a joy filled with gratitude, put there by their angel.
