When you can’t protect your children, the guardian angels of the children is always a powerful aid against harm.
The world we know is a dangerous place. When you leave the comforts of your home there is no one to tell you what may happen to you or your children.

The good news is that we are never alone.
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by [angels and] their watchful care and intercession” (CCC 336).

Parents easily forget that their children have guardian angels and that they can pray to them and invoke their powerful protection over their children. When parents can’t physically be with their children to protect them, it is most appropriate to pray to the guardian angel of their children to protect them.

Then, here is a short prayer a mother can say for her children, and this is one way that parents can quiet their heart and be at peace knowing who is protecting their little ones.

I humbly greet you, O ye faithful and heavenly friends of my children! I give you heartfelt thanks for all the love and goodness you show them. At some future day I shall, with thanks more worthy than I can give now, repay your care for them, and before the entire heavenly court acknowledge their indebtedness to your guidance and protection. Do not stop to watch over them. Provide for all their needs of body and soul. Pray, also, for me, for my husband, and my entire family, that we may all one day rejoice in your blessed company. Amen.
