It is a pleasure to welcome you to the tenth quarterly edition of “The Angels, Messengers from a loving God”. Thank you for all your emails and letters. We are glad to hear that the magazine gives you knowledge and inspiration for living a holy life.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Angels usually help a person develop spiritually in an invisible way; like St Faustina who had contact with her guardian angel, St Michael the Archangel, a seraph and a cherub. She was often consoled and defended by angels who became her best friends. St Faustina’s devotion to the holy angels helped her in many situations, including making her confession which was at times difficult for her. (D 175) Confessing one’s sins multiplies the grace of healing. What’s more when we meet Jesus present in confession we develop our friendship with the Son of God, there is no need for us to be afraid. One day Jesus said to Sister Faustina ‘If it were not for this imperfection you would not have come to me’.
Angels do not make decisions for us but they are there 24 hours a day waiting for us to ask for their help and guidance. They are messengers who encourage and assist us on our way to heaven if we call on them. Angels were companions to Sister Faustina during her mystical experiences. Whilst on her mission of conveying the message about Divine Mercy to the whole world she was given the help and graces needed to perform her tasks by God.
I would kindly ask you to let others know about our magazine and distribute it all over the world. We look forward to any questions or feedback. I would be interested to hear from you by letter or email and to relate any testimonies on how the angels have helped you in your life.
I encourage you to call on your Guardian Angel for help and protection for yourselves, for your families and friends. If Popes, Padre Pio and many other saints called on the angels and St Michael daily, so should we.
I assure you of the constant prayer of the priests of the Congregation of Saint Michael the Archangel for all the readers and their families.
Since 29th January 2012 our Order is continuing the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the death of our founder Blessed Father Bronislaw Markiewicz who had a great devotion to Our Blessed Mother and St Michael the Archangel.
God bless you.
