Guardian Angels

A Heavernly host of guardian angels go in and out the Bible pages, concerning whom a volume might be written. To the sleeping Jacob angels seemed to be ascending and descending on a ladder which reached to heaven. Guardian angels were seen at the sepulcher after Jesus had risen, and while the disciple beheld Jesus' ascension, it is recorded, "two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." In daily life the mother is the guardian angel of her babe in the crib and so, spiritually understood, God as Mother, divine Love, is the guardian of the real children of light. In an exquisite article on "Angels," to be found in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 306), are these words: "When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts."

Christian Science lifts the veil and reveals the heavenly host of right ideas, God's real children, as ever present and ever active. At the very moment man may seem beset by hosts of evil suggestions, dark forebodings, threats, the emissaries of hate acting on weaknesses of prenatal predispositions, or disabilities caused by inherited or racial idiosyncrasies, at the very moment when the enemy, having massed its forces, seems about to break through the last lines of resistance, Christian Science rightly understood brings the absolute assurance that God and His angels, the heavenly host, are at hand to protect and save.
