Come let us worship the Lord in the company of his angels…
— Liturgy of the Hours – Sept 29 Feast of the Archangels
As I’m writing this, tomorrow is the Feast of the Archangels; Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. I was a big fan of the television series, Touched By An Angel. The Christian bookstore carried merchandise from the show. Some ten years ago, I bought a Touched By An Angel perpetual calendar — a small flip stand. It is always on my desk though it is not there to remind me of the day. In fact, I may go days or weeks without flipping a page. The calendar is there when I need it — a moment of stress — a moment of thanks — a moment of reassurance that God is in control. I read it today.
How do people do it? They get up every morning and start all over again. It takes a lot of courage to do that … and they don’t even know what angels know.
