To Protect and Serve: The Truth About Guardian Angels

Yes, guardian angels really do exist! In fact, every year on October 2nd the Church celebrates a Feast Day in honor of Guardian Angels. Your guardian angel is one of God’s greatest gifts to you. They are a source of His power. They never leave your side yet they are constantly looking upon the face of God, too. Guardian angels are not only real they are very active. You should invite yours into your day. Invite your angel to pray with you, to protect you, to help keep you focused on God and to protect you from evil and from harm.

Purgatory: Heaven’s Waiting Room

Consider this analogy. Have you ever tried to put a wrinkled dollar bill into a soda machine? You try your best to straighten it out but the machine simply can’t receive it in its wrinkled, tattered state. But if you put in a crisp, new bill, the machine takes it no problem. Purgatory is where all the “wrinkles” are purged and “ironed out.” Remember, the wrinkled dollar is not worth less than the new one it just needs some help.

Put simply, Purgatory means you’ll get to heaven some day, but that you have a few things God has to “iron out” first.

The Mystery of Heaven

In the Gospel Jesus compares heaven to life, light, peace, a wedding feast, the Father's house, the heavenly Jerusalem, and paradise. But ultimately, we don't know what it's like. 'No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him' (1 Corinthians 2:9). The fact is, we'll just have to wait and see.

'What do you mean, wait and see,' you ask. 'I thought people have visions of heaven! So don't we know?' . . .
