I have always had a fascinations with angels. When I was a child, I was told about angels by both my mother and grandmother, how they love and protect us, especially children. So when I grew up and learned more about the Orthodox Christian faith, I discovered much more about angels than I ever imagined.
So for my next Father Gabriel comic strip I wanted to dedicate to our guardian angels, who as their names imply, are assigned by God to guard, protect and guide us, as the below quotes from Elder Ioannicius states.
You don’t know what to do? Ask your guardian angel. A good thought will come and lay upon your heart how to proceed. Your heart will become light and there will be peace ~ Elder Ioannicius
Here is an excellent article about Holy Angels by St. Nicholai Velimirovic, Bishop of Zica.
In addition, below is also an excellent book on angels by Mother Alexandra.
