Wednesday 29 September was the Feast of Michael, Gabriel and Rafael, the Archangels, and the Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels will be celebrated on Saturday 2 October.
So, what’s all this fuss about angels? The Catholic Youth Parramatta team break it down in this easy-to-digest video.
“From the Incarnation to the Ascension, the life of the Word incarnate is surrounded by the adoration and service of angels,” Qwayne says. “The whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of angels.”
Sr Rosie adds, “From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession.”
St Basil once said, “Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him or her to life.”
