Guardian angels

 
Guardian Angels, based on Matthew 18:1-5,10

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. “Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for, I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my Father in heaven.

    I want to thank Jim Donleavy for his message, 2nd October. I have been too sophisticated to think of guardian angels, that seemed childish, but the kindness of God and the link with infinity are not to be taken lightly or shunned. That makes sense to me in a tough world!
