The Work of Angels

Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, “Grow, grow.”
– The Talmud
Every blade of grass - and every poppy and purple flower too!

The Feast of the Guardian Angels

Tuesday, October 2nd is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. We can’t prove they are there, but I’m pretty sure that they have been around and kept me out of a scrap or two in my life. The picture below is from a fresco at San Domenico in Bologna. It shows the angels carrying the body of St. Dominic.

May the angels be with us “now and at the hour of our death.” Amen.

St. Dominic is often recognized by the star on his forehead.
