Saints on the angels


"Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit;

for without being seen, they are present with you."                                                                                                           ~ St. Francis de Sales



“We should pray to the angels, for they are given to us as guardians.”

                                                                                       ~ St Ambrose



"Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you....

Often invoke them, constantly praise them,

and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs."

                                                                          ~ St. Francis de Sales



“When tempted, invoke your Angel.

he is more eager to help you than you are to be helped!

Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him:

He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel.”
