10/2/13 Many people always wonder about angels and such. God gave us all someone to look after us, what we know as our guardian angels. In the Book of Psalms, the following is written: "He will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone." Psalms 91: 11-12. This quote from the Book of Psalms tells us that God loves us and does not want us to get hurt. This is why He gives each one of us a guardian angel, to allow us to be protected at all times and prevent us from having anything bad happen to us. A guardian angel, by definition is somebody that is assigned to you to protect and guide you. They help you in many ways and take care of you in situations when you most need it. Catholics believe in their existence because we are taught in the Bible that God loves us so much that he assigned each one of us a guardian angel to protect us. Since the Bible is the most important literature for Catholics, it is clear why we actually believe in angels. No matter the country you are born in, or the language you speak, every Catholic child is taught to pray for their guarding angels. For example, even though my family is from Serbia, and we speak a completely different language, I was taught to believe in angels because they would always be around to protect me. My friends, who were born in America, were also taught to always pray for their guardian angels.The belief in angels is a universal thought amongst Catholics from all over the world. I personally know that angels exist because they have saved me multiple times from getting hurt really badly. One summer, when I was five years old, my parents took me to Serbia for the first time. One afternoon we went to visit a relative who lived in a house up on a hill. While I was playing with my cousins, we started to run around and before I could realize, I had tripped and was rolling down the hill. My parents were trying to catch me but I was going too fast. What could have been a terrible accident
