Hello friends I had a question concerning guardian angels, are they real? Do you believe in them? I looked at a couple verses in scripture a while back as a Roman Catholic that seemed to support the BASE of the doctrine (not the entire doctrine itself). Just recently, I was looking to see if any Church fathers taught that guardian angels exist, and found a couple did! If you feel sweetness or compunction at some word of your prayer, dwell on it; for then our guardian angel is praying with us. St. John Climacus In the presence of an invisible spirit, the body becomes afraid; but in the presence of an angel, the soul of the humble is filled with joy. Therefore, when we recognize the presence from the effect, let us quickly hasten to prayer, for our good guardian has come to pray with us. St. John Climacus "When you close the doors to your dwelling and are alone you should know that there is present with you the angel whom God has appointed for each man…This angel, who is sleepless and cannot be deceived, is always present with you; he sees all things and is not hindered by darkness. You should know, too, that with him is God, who is in every place; for there is no place and nothing material in which God is not, since He is greater than all things and holds all men in His hand." St. Antony the Great What are your opinions on this matter?
