What, precisely, was it the priest on EWTN encouraged?
If you have any concerns - talk to them - I followed what he said and I am pleased I did.
(oh, in case you are curious - pray about it - it is always worth while)
Ok, what he said during the homily on The Feast of the Angels - 2 October of this year was; when he was a young priest his Spiritual adviser - another Priest and I can not remember his name - asked him if he knew the name of his Guardian Angel. Father said "no" and was quite taken aback by the question. His S.A then said, basically, "shame on you, the Lord placed an Angel at your side from your conception and you should know what the name is and address the Angel for help, advice, leadership." and the way was to pray first, to the Holy Spirit and then open your Bible and begin to read. You will find it. Well; I had found out about 20 years ago when I was under great duress and praying - I always talk out loud to the saints, angels and the Lord - and, while crying, I said "Oh, Guardian Angel, I don't even know your name and I always cry on your shoulder" At that moment a name came to me and I thought "hahahaha, how silly you are, Laura". Soon after that, I was reading my Bible and BAM!!! there is the name that I heard in my mind. Soooooah - I know what Father said is TRUE! And our Angels are there, all the time. Say "Hello" when you are at Mass or in a crowded place - there is an Angel for each person. When there is a tense moment or something going on - I call on ALL the Angels of all the people in the room or area, to assist.
