Devotion to Angels If we sincerely want to do the right thing, angels can help us. So we should cultivate a devotion to the guardian angels. They're powerful spiritual beings who want us to succeed at being good. They want us to end up in heaven. — fromAngels of God
I get emails daily, from americancatholic.org, which I found through my parish's website, of "minute meditations". It's basically the smallest and laziest way to have at least one moment of your day be about god. I love it. It would be nice if we could all be like Jesus all day, but that is not really possible for most of us. I am taking this one day at a time, after all, we are all just sinners. I am not in any way content in being a sinner, but I am aware that I am, and that is progress right?
Today's minute meditation is not one that I can really meditate on...yet. I have not been schooled in the ways of angels in my RCIA class yet, so this is something I will need to seek knowledge of. I am just now getting the whole "saints" thing, which I am devouring books on, and really enjoying. I am a little sad that I didn't have all these saints to look up to as a child, growing up protestant. But, a family friend of ours a catholic, recently told me that the way I am going about it, is the right way. She meant, that I am an adult, finding out the true meanings and teachings, and actually learning them and enjoying them fully. I think that's what she meant. So, angels will be my new task.
