How a Guardian Angel helped St. Veronica Giuliani with her chores
Veronica had a special relationship with her Guardian Angel, who often helped her in the kitchen.
Catholics believe that each person is appointed by God a Guardian Angel, who is an invisible spiritual guide that accompanies us throughout our lives. While we may not be able to see them, their presence is often felt and their inner promptings can lead us along the path of virtue.
St. Veronica Guiliani, however, was well aware of her Guardian Angel and daily conversed with him and saw him frequently. Even her godmother saw Veronica’s Guardian Angel when she received the sacrament of Confirmation at age seven.
The many encounters Veronica had with her Guardian Angel are a reminder to us that our Guardian Angel is right there, with us, at this very moment. We may not be able to see him, but he is there and wants to help us.
Sometimes all we have to do is ask with a firm trust in God’s divine power. While he may not help us wash the dishes or put the kids to bed, he is there as a spiritual guide, ready to help us follow God’s will.
