“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 91:11

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

For He will command His angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

.

– Psalm 91:11 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

.

How greatly should these words draw you

to respect…the presence of your good angel!

.

What great confidence they ought to inspire in you

– since it is God who is taking care of you.

.

Pay great attention to all you do

since the angels are present to all your affairs

as God has commanded them.

.

Wherever you go,

in whatever nook or cranny you may find yourself,

always show great devotion to your good angel…

.

Do you question

whether this unseen spirit is present to all you do?

.

What great respect you would show

if you understood,

touched

and felt him beside you!

.

Take good note that it isn’t only by seeing

that we become convinced that something is present

– not all present, corporeal things can be grasped by sight.

.

How much more, then,

are spiritual things outside the grasp of our senses

and cannot be sought or found

except by spiritual means?

.

So if you examine your faith,

doesn’t it assure you

that your good angel is always with you?

.

Yes indeed, faith gives you its proof

because…

‘faith grants proof and conviction of realities we do not see.’ (Heb 11:1)

.

Be assured, then,

that our good angels are always there,

not just with us but on our side.

They are close to us to protect and serve us.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O Faithful Guardian of my spirit, soul and body,

pray to God for me, protect me from the evil one,

and keep me on the sure path to salvation.

One Response to “a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 91:11

  1. Mary Muscat says:

    Surely our God is good and gives us help and protection in many ways.Thanks for today’s Teachings which shows us that He even gives each one of us a Guardian Angel to take care of us
    It reminded me of the little prayer we were taught by our Religion Teacher when we were young;

    “O Guardian Angel”
    O Angel, whom God in His kindness has sent you to protect me,
    Guide me and show me the way through this day, Amen.
