Guardian Angel Day is celebrated on October 2 and perfectly reflects the role of guardian angels in human life. We raise our eyes to the sky, thank the higher powers for the fulfillment of desires and protection from troubles… Faith has always saved and inspired Christians from all over the world. We invite you to celebrate the holiday with your family and say thank you to the invisible rescuers!
In biblical times, there are many references to guardian angels. In the Old Testament, it was written that they descend to earth and interfere in the development of the event. Also, angels are believed to be intermediaries between man and God, and not only Christians, but Muslims also believe that two angels stand next to them, one in front and the other behind.
In the 16th century, interest in miraculous creatures increased, and the Pope officially proclaimed October 2 as an official holiday, comparable to Easter and Christmas in terms of brightness and kindness. People never tire of thanking the Almighty for appointing a guardian to save them from evil.
Did you know that angels are:
- sexless, immortal and incorporeal;
- able to appear in human form;
- known to come to people’s dreams to warn of impending danger;
- selective in choosing who they will patronize;
- responsive to requests and silently listen;
- always nearby;
- fond of positive people – this confirms the fact that optimists are often luckier;
- known to give signals that often go unnoticed;
- said to protect hell (in Islam).
How to take part
A survey conducted in the United States revealed that 75% of Americans believe in angels, which is why the holiday is always felt in the country! People gather with their loved ones, talk about important matters, learn prayers and thank the angels. Special attention is paid to children – adults tell wonderful stories, decorate their homes with crafts, read religious books, and sing songs.
