THE ANGELS: The last class of angels includes those who are the closest to us, the guardian angels. No Church doubts their existence, which is attested from the very beginning of Revelation. Pope Benedict XVI said in a homily in 2008: "The invisible presence of these blessed spirits is a great help and a great comfort to us. They walk by our side and protect us in every circumstance, they defend us in dangers, and we can have recourse to them at any time."
