Pope's Mass: Nobody walks alone

2014-10-02

 

During his daily morning Mass, Pope Francis talked about the guardian angels. He said that all Christians have one who gives them advice at all times.

POPE FRANCIS
"When we do not want to listen to his advice, to listen to his voice, it's like saying, ‘Go away!' It is dangerous to chase away our travelling companion, because no man nor woman can advise themselves. I can give advice to others, but not to myself.”

Today the Church celebrates the Feast of Guardian Angels. The Pope concluded his homily asking Christians to reflect on what relationship they have with their guardian angels.

SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S HOMILY
(Source: Vatican Radio)

"According to the tradition of the Church, we all have an angel with us, who protects us, helps us hear things. How often have we heard: 'I should do this, I should not do this, that’s not right, be careful ...': so often! It is the voice of our traveling companion. Be sure that he will guide us to the end of our lives with advice, and so listen to his voice, don’t rebel against it…because rebellion, the desire to be independent, is something that we all have; this is arrogance, the same arrogance of our father Adam in paradise: the very same. Do not rebel: follow his advice”.

"And when we do not want to listen to his advice, to listen to his voice, it's like saying, ‘Go away!'. It is dangerous to chase away our travelling companion, because no man no woman can advise themselves. I can give advice to others, but not to myself. The Holy Spirit advises me, the angel advises me.  This is why we need him. This is not an imaginative doctrine on the angels: no, it is reality. It is what Jesus said, God said: 'I send an angel before you to guard you, to accompany you on your journey, so you will not go wrong’".

"Ask yourself this question today: How is my relationship with my guardian angel? Do I listen to him? Do I say good morning to him in the morning? Do I ask him: Watch over me when I sleep?'. Do I speak with him? Do I ask his advice? He is by my side. We can answer this question today, each of us: how is our relationship with this angel that the Lord has sent to watch over me and accompany me on my journey, and who always sees the face of the Father who is in heaven.
