Angel Story

Fr. Wolfgang Seitz printed one of my personal angel stories in the Opus Sanctorum Angelorum Lenten circular.  We can all benefit by being more aware of the love and care God has for us, especially when we pray and honor our guardian angel, so I thought I should share it with you, as well:

 Years ago my husband and I were in a movie theater engrossed in the movie, when suddenly I was inspired to pray, so I did. The feeling was so unexpected and strong, I stopped watching the screen, closed my eyes and turned my attention to prayer as I felt directed to do. Then I had peace and wondered what that was all about.  

 When we returned home, my, then teenaged, daughter couldn’t wait to tell us what had happened. She said she was comfortably seated in an easy chair in the family room, reading a book. Then phone rang, so she reluctantly got out of the chair to answer it. As soon as she was out of the chair, a large and heavy sound unit that had been on the highest shelf in a built in bookcase, fell onto the every spot she had occupied just seconds before. 

 The light came on for me and I immediately understood why I was prodded to pray. My daughter and I remember this incident with thanksgiving to the angels to this day!

  2. What an amazing and encouraging testimony. On another point: talking of movies, I find myself praying through most of them these days – such is the violence, wickedness etc. Sounds like your movie was blessed!


    • You are go to a way to help the movie industry, prayer! I’m going to see Son of God today. It should help my Lent get off to a good start.
