When I was in high school, just getting involved in the Church and with spirituality I really wanted to learn how to ask an angel for help. I read an article in Catholic Digest about a couple that named the guardian angels of all their children, and the unusual incidence where a son was injured and the doctor who cared for him had the un-common name of the boy's guardian angel.
I really needed help, and I was really happy when I ask an angel for guidance and he really came!
Since that very moving piece, I named my guardian angel. I asked him what his name was or what he would like to be called and got some sort of answer (whether I gave it to myself or not is up to you to decide). I named him Edward.
Many times he has done little things for me, I know. Once I almost had an accident, but for Edward, who alerted me by a forceful turn of the head to the oncoming car.
Edward and I have had an interesting relationship. Sometimes I don't remember him for months at a time, until distressed. But I try as hard as I can to thank him. Many times he has done little things for me, I know. Once I almost had an accident, but for Edward, who alerted me by a forceful turn of the head to the oncoming car. Another time, just recently, I was awakened by a sudden physical jolt out of bed, just in time to dress fast and get to a liturgy that I was presiding over (Liturgy of the Hours Morning Prayer service). And just last week, I was jolted from a nap to make a class I am glad I did (we found out about a final there).
So that is the story of my guardian angel and how I ask an angel for help. I hope everyone posts something to this list.
