for I say to you, that their angels in heaven
always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
Like many other little Catholic children everywhere, my daughter says the Guardian Angel prayer every night. And sometimes after we have kissed and hugged, and said what are we doing tomorrow, and the lights are off, she calls me back one or two more times.
Frequently she says, "I'm afraid." Sometimes "I'm afraid" is just a ploy to get a little more chat time, but sometimes it's real. I always tell her, "Jesus loves you, Mother Mary loves you and your Guardian Angel is watching you. There's nothing to be afraid of." Whenever I tell her this, she giggles. Apparently the thought of all that love and protection just makes her happy. But, she also goes right to sleep.
What a beautiful comfort -- to know that someone is watching over you.
