These spiritual beings are real and not just a cute story told to children.
Everyone has a guardian angel at their side. This doesn’t just mean a friendly person who watches over them, but an actual spiritual being that silently guides and protects us.
Jesus himself revealed this truth of the faith, “See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 18:10).
