Daily Mediations
October 6th – 12th

Day 15: Wednesday, October 6th
From the Feast of Guardian Angels

Matthew 18:10:
See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

Consider the dignity of all men and women before God. All these souls are assigned a majestic angel to protect them in their life’s journey. These little ones conceived in the womb are given a mighty angel to safeguard them throughout life. That is how important every soul, born and unborn, is.

Day 16: Thursday, October 7th
From the Feast of Guardian Angels

Matthew 18:10:
See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.

Consider that one mighty angel, if allowed by God, could annihilate all the armies the world has ever mustered combined, and yet we dare to experiment and murder these unborn children so protected. Are we not fortunate that these mighty angels respect life more than we and take not revenge for innocent blood?

Day 17: October 8th

Exodus 23:20:
See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared.

Just as the Angel led the Jewish people safely on the journey to the Promised Land, let us ask the angels and we ourselves pray that our brothers and sisters may be led on a journey that will lead them to see their baby as needing them, and that to love a child, though work, is to bring joy to life.

Day 18: Saturday, October 9th

Daniel 10:20-11:1a:
“Do you know,” he asked, “why I have come to you? Soon I must fight the prince of Persia again. When I leave, the prince of Greece will come; but I shall tell you what is written in the truthful book. No one supports me against all these except Michael, your prince standing as a reinforcement and a bulwark for me.”

The angels of God bring the Good News in many ways. Ultimately, many of these servants of God serve God by seeing to our spiritual wellbeing. Let us ask the angels to intercede for all men and women considering abortion, that they may come to know the Truth of God’s sorrow at the loss of a baby in the womb, and the joy of bring service in loving a little child, a child who is Truly a gift from God.

Day 19: Sunday, October 10th

Exodus 23:20-22:
See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes.

Angels do not only intercede for our Spiritual wellbeing, but our health and welfare. Should we not, then, ask our angels to intercede and indeed we too pray for the spiritual, physical, and quality of life for the mother, father, and children affected by abortion and the threat of abortion?

Day 20: Monday, October 11th

Genesis 2:23-25:
The man said: “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; This one shall be called ‘woman,’ for out of ‘her man’ this one has been taken.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body. The man and his wife were both naked, yet they felt no shame.

One of the greatest ways to stop abortion is to promote the beauty of the Family. One of the most wonderful gifts of service a Guardian Angel may provide us is help in the finding of a spouse. We need only ask our Guardian Angel, and he/she will gently guide us by intercession with God in finding that special someone with which we make a fruitful life in Jesus Christ. Then with a spouse truly given to us by God we may sing with ‘Lord, you know that I take this of mine not because of lust, but for a noble purpose. Call down your mercy on me and on her, and allow us to live together to a happy old age.” They said together, “Amen, amen,”.’

Day 21: Tuesday, October 12th

Jude 1:9:
Yet the archangel Michael, when he argued with the devil in a dispute over the body of Moses, did not venture to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him but said, “May the Lord rebuke you!”

If even a dead body is worthy of a heavenly battle between St. Michael and the adversary, how much more is the life of one little child?
From the Feast of Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael
