From Opus Angelorum:
My Angel came to me to give me a sign of HOPE
“My husband and I were going through a very rough period in our marriage. I was feeling pretty hopeless, unloved, disrespected, and un-listened to. Before he had agreed to couples counseling. I considered leaving him, as it was hard to see how we could save the marriage at this impasse. One evening while praying in bed, crying, and feeling like I was literally in a ‘dark night of the soul,’ I looked up through my heavy tears and saw a bright light in the corner of the room near my side of the bed. I immediately felt at peace and knew very deep in my soul, I would be okay and in time, with TRUST in God, our marriage would be okay.
“I believe my Angel came to me to give me a sign of HOPE when I was in such a dark place. I woke up that morning with a renewed sense of Hope and Trust even though things were far from perfect in the household. Many years later—and finally getting some couples therapies—I am happy to share that our communication has greatly improved; we are totally committed to staying together and our love has been renewed. This October 12th we will celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary! If I had not received that sign, I am not sure what I had done… But since my Angel came to me with a sign, my hope and trust were strengthened so that I had the courage to persevere in this trial knowing things would eventually be okay. I pray now that our Lord may continue to bless our marriage as my husband slowly returns to practicing his faith! May the Angels guide our path to Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!!!”
A Guardian Angel Experience
“I would like to share a recent guardian angel experience that I had. I live in a suburb of Los Angeles that happens to be very near the Port of Los Angeles. I work in a city nearby and have to travel on the Los Angeles freeways to and from work. My route home from work takes me on a stretch of freeway that is heavily traveled by huge semi-trucks.
“For most of my travel home, the trucks stay in the slower right lane. These trucks have numerous huge double-wheels that are located under the metal shipping containers that they are hauling. One thing that you will often see on the freeways are large pieces of rubber tread that come off of their worn tires. These treads often have zig-zag pieces of steel that has been embedded into the tire itself during manufacturing. I guess you would say that they are ‘steel belted’ tires that helps them to grip the road.
“I was on my way home one evening and as usual I was almost to the off-ramp that I needed to take to get home on a connecting freeway. All of a sudden, I see this car in front of me swerve as though they were trying to avoid something. We were both traveling at around 65 mph, but the car in front of me had run over this huge piece of steel-belted tire from off of one of the big rigs!
“I saw the piece fly up into the air and it was twisting as it came down coming straight in the direction of my windshield. I knew that it was going to hit my windshield and there was nothing that I could do to prevent it. But, the most incredible thing happened. It seemed like everything went into slow motion; even though my car continued traveling at the same speed, the movements outside of my car were in slow motion.
“I have no explanation as to how this happened, other than it was my Guardian Angel watching over me. Everything grew completely silent, I could no longer hear the radio. I just tried to prepare myself for the impact. But, all of a sudden this huge piece of tire seemed to stop in mid-air and then it slowly fell straight down onto the freeway. I mean, it was as though it had hit this glass barrier and slid down it, until hitting the ground right in front of my car. But, yet my car didn’t roll over it the way the other car had.
“To this day I can’t explain what I saw and I can only say that it had to be my Guardian Angel who prevented this piece of tire from crashing into my windshield! I feel most certain that I would have died that day in a car accident. It was definitely Divine intervention — my Guardian Angel.
“I can see the angels! I’m coming!”
“My mother died on December 3, 2020, from the coronavirus. As I was going out the door to be with her during her final days, Mary Sue handed me the book of formation letters so I could begin my preparation for consecration to my Holy Guardian Angel.
“When I arrived in St. Louis, my sister told me she could ‘see’ two angels at either the foot or head (I can’t recall now) of my mom’s bed in the hospital. By the Grace of God, we were able to bring my mom home to care for her until she passed to her eternal reward.
“At one point we were praying and singing with her and she exclaimed, ‘I can see the angels! I’m coming!’ Shortly after she took her last breath the CD player in the room turned on by itself and played the ‘Salve Regina’ – maybe her Guardian Angel turned it on – a tribute to the Queen of Angels who helped us so much during those final days and to whom my mother was so devoted.
“This time of preparation (towards the Consecration to the Guardian Angel) has been such a grace for me. As I grieve I find such comfort in knowing I have this wonderful heavenly companion at my side to walk with me through this.”
