Time to Meet the AngelsThe 9 Choirs and Much More
Here are four ways in which we can actively cooperate with our Guardian Angels, in building a strong and lasting relationship of intimate love with them:
1. Adoration—Our Angels can teach us great things on how best to adore God, since it is so much part of their angelic nature to worship God well.
2. Contemplation—Our Angels can direct our minds and hearts as to how best to meditate upon and contemplate the great mysteries of God, Heaven, and all of God’s revelation to us.
3. Expiation—Here, we can work in union with our Angels, since they, having no bodies, cannot offer their physical sufferings in reparation to God and for the conversion of sinners (cf. Col 1:24). They can however consistently enlighten and inspire us to do so for God’s glory, for the good of others, and for our own personal sanctification.
4. Guidance in our State and Vocation in Life—Far better than we can by on our own, our Guardian Angel can direct us to the best possible fulfillment of the needs of our particular calling and state in life, helping us to make the best choices and actions to perfect ourselves in Christian love.
