+  Angels of the Lord: 365 Reflections on Our Heavenly Guardians

  • Description: "Scripture is full of references to angels. In fact, Saint Gregory the Great, a sixth-century pope and biblical scholar, reminded the Church, “Nearly every page of Scripture testifies to the fact that there are angels and archangels. “ As Christians, we believe that angels have been given the sacred mission to assist, protect, and guide human beings and all of God’s creation. With Angels of the Lord, you can spend every day of the year getting to know these mighty messengers of God."
