"When I look back on my life, I wonder how I survived - my mother said I had a guardian angel."
Micky Dolenz

"No, I never saw an angel, but it is irrelevant whether I saw one or not. I feel their presence around me."
Paulo Coelho

All you holy angels and archangels, 
thrones and dominations,
principalities and powers, 
the virtues of Heaven, 
cherubim and seraphim, 
praise the Lord forever.

"I do not hesitate to say that devotion to the angels is one of the hallmarks of being a true Christian. It was an angel who first appeared to our Lady to announce her conception of Jesus Christ at Nazareth. It was an angel who appeared to the shepherds at Bethlehem to tell them that the Messiah had been born. It was an angel who consoled our Lord in His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was an angel who told the women who visited the tomb in which Christ had been buried, that the Savior was risen from the dead. It was angels who told the disciples staring into the sky at Christ’s ascension that He would return from heaven to earth even as He had ascended from earth to heaven. It was an angel who delivered Peter from prison where he was chained for his proclaiming Jesus as the Messiah. It will be angels who will announce the coming of Christ on the last day of time and the first day of eternity to judge the living and the dead."
Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

"We are like children, who stand in need of masters to enlighten us and direct us; God has provided for this, by appointing his angels to be our teachers and guides."
Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica

"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
Hebrews (13:2)

"How shall we tell an angel from another guest?
How, from the common worldly herd, One of the blest? 
Hint of suppressed halo, rustle of hidden wings, wafture of heavenly frankincense,- 
Which is these things? The old Sphinx smile so subtly: 'I give no golden rule,
Yet I would warn thee, World: Treat well whom thou call'st fool'..."
Gertrude Hall

"Are not angels all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?"

Hebrews (1:14)

"Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you."
St. Francis de Sales
