Ironically, it was during those episodes of oppression when i began to fully comprehend just how real evil could be and, more so, how much more real and powerful God was. Since then, i discovered the St Michael Prayer and have been faithfully reciting it, as well as the Guardian Angel Prayer, every day. It is not mere superstition, because i have experienced the efficacy of the prayer, and the Bible has taught me the role of St Michael and our Guardian Angels in our life on earth.
Interestingly, i found out that the saint whom i love very much, St Pio, has a very special Guardian Angel, and it is incredible what his guardian angel could do.
I am so grateful to God for our angels and to know that we never walk alone.
