The Daily Catch - published on 05/24/16

Today, Laura Yeager recounted a charming tale of an encounter with a friendly woman in a thrift shop. A similar taste in jewelry and plates kept them bumping into each other throughout the store. By checkout they were praying together and exchanging numbers, already fast friends:

What happened in the thrift store was the most spontaneous religious experience I’d ever had. I praise God that He appears to us when we need him most. He appeared to me in the form of a Colombian lady with similar taste to mine in a thrift store in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, in the middle of May of 2016.

Your correspondent’s mother claims to have met her guardian angel on several occasions. While I do believe in things seen and unseen, I prefer to think that these are just normal people guided by the Holy Spirit. Cue the dinner debate which leaves my father rubbing his temples.

We would like to explore this idea and ask:
