A Tribute to our Guardian Angels Part IV: The Letterbox and the Phone.

The following Testimony was donated by a Prayer Group member.

My Guardian Angel Saved My Life

One day I wanted to post some letters, so I stopped at a side street off a main road. I parked across the road opposite the letter box. I had to walk across the road to post them. The street was a “T” intersection.

As I dropped the letters in the big red letter box, I heard a voice say to me, “check the letters.” I said back to it in my mind, “I dropped them in.” It said again a little louder this time, “Check the letters in the box.” I said again, “ I put them in.” It then repeated again, even louder still, “CHECK THE LETTERS IN THE BOX.”

I said, “OK.” So I checked the letter box. I said, “see I put them in.” Just as I finished saying that I put my foot onto the road stepping off the nature strip and around the corner coming from the main road was this Combi van speeding.
He did not slow down to take the corner. He was in the middle of the road just as I put my foot on the road. So If I had not checked the letters I would have been in the middle of the road as he came around the corner. He wouldn’t have been able to stop in time as the letter box was very close to the corner.

I would have been killed if I didn’t listen to my Guardian Angel. It was really funny as our conversion was only a few seconds, but we said a lot. I thanked my Guardian angel for protecting me and asked for forgiveness, and said I was sorry for not listening the first time. So I give thanks to my dear Guardian angel and to God for giving us Guardian angels.

My Guardian Angel Telling Me To Phone My Friend

For many years I use to pick up a priest from M. He was a traditional Latin Priest. His name was Fr P.F. I used to take him to a house in T every Friday night at 6pm and he would celebrate the Latin Mass. The lady’s name was Emily. She was a really lovely lady. Both Emily and Fr F have passed away but I have fond memories of them both. Fr P F taught me a lot about the traditional Latin Mass and many other things. He had a good sense of humor too.

I drove Fr F for over 6 years every Friday night to Emily’s place. We hardly ever missed a Mass over there.

This one day, late in the afternoon, I heard a voice that said to me, “ring Emily”. I said again. “I don’t have to as I know she is going to have the Mass.” It repeated again, “ring Emily.” So I thought about it because it was not long before I had to leave. I thought it is only a phone call to check if Mass was on.

So I phoned Emily and she told me that she was not having Mass that night. I was so glad I phoned so I didn’t make the trip from N to M and then to T for nothing. It use to take me over 1 ½ hours to get to Emily’s after I picked Fr F up. Then another 1 ½ to take him home again. This was all in peak hour traffic too.

I thanked my Guardian Angel for telling me to phone first. I never used to ring before we went on Friday. It was just this one day I heard the voice.

A Tribute to our Guardian Angels Part II: A Car, A Bus, and a Voice

Testimony from a prayer group member

A Giant Angel’s Protection in a Car Accident

One day, when my granddaughter was 6 years old, she had a dream which she related to me. It entailed a “giant” angel on the window of her mum’s car, of which she was a passenger. A few weeks later, she was being driven home from school by her mother. At the time I was also driving home from work and saying the Rosary.

I received a call to say that my daughter had driven into a telegraph pole. Both were okay, but the car was a write-off. My granddaughter was sitting in the front seat (this was before laws which now do not allow children this young in the front). Her schoolbag was under the dashboard, which had been pushed right up to the seat. The bag could not be retrieved from under the dashboard, but my granddaughter was unharmed, as was my daughter. Their escape was miraculous. The only explanation was my granddaughter’s dream – that an angel had lain across the windscreen and protected them from harm.

My future husband’s time had not yet come.

My husband had just started work as a 16 year old in the city. He had an errand to go to the Post Office. He caught the bus, which was an old style double-decker with a door at the back as well as the front. The bus was in the middle lane, and cars were parked in the left lane. Traffic was slow and he was eager to get off. He could see the bus stop up ahead, where he knew the bus had to pull into. There were now no more cars parked in the left lane. He went to quickly jump off the slow-moving bus, but he couldn’t move! Just at that second, a sports car zoomed past the bus. It had come out of an underground carpark beneath one of the buildings and was racing to get past the bus before it reached the bus stop. He would not have survived. God still had plans for him!!! He didn’t tell anyone of this story till decades later.

Me and my angel

I love my Guardian angel. I have always, since I was little prayed the Guardian Angel Prayer every morning. I try to have a devotion to my dear Guardian angel. I talk to him at times, and ask him for favours – like trying to get me safely across a difficult intersection in the car. Sometimes I send him to someone whom I urgently need to contact who is not answering their phone. Whenever I have to get up early, I just ask my angel to wake me up in the morning at a certain time. He never fails. I don’t use an alarm clock. When I am at Mass, and find that my mind wanders, I ask my guardian angel to shield my mind so that I can focus on Jesus and the Mass. It works every time.

Recently I was with our Crusade Prayer Group and during the Rosary (5th decade – the Crucifixion), I heard someone behind my shoulder say my name. I turned my head slightly, on a natural impulse, but realised there was no-one there – only the usual prayer group members on either side, who were praying. I thought immediately it was my angel. I pondered for a few seconds, the reason for this, and came to the conclusion that my prayers needed more intensity – that perhaps I was distracted (although I couldn’t remember the fact that I was being distracted). As it turned out, all our prayer were needed that day for a special intention, which we found out afterwards.
