OCTOBER 2, 2006

EXODUS 23: 20-23
"See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and
bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed
his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your
sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry
out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to
your foes. "My angel will go before you and bring you to the
Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites and Jebusites;
and I will wipe them out.

MATTHEW 18:1-5, 10
The disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the
Kingdom of heaven?" He called a child over, placed it in their
midst, and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become
like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever
humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of
heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name
receives me. "See that you do not despise one of these little ones,
for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the
face of my heavenly Father."

There are many books and stories about angels. There are also many
people who believe in their existence and power in our lives. In
today's first reading, God specifically tells us about the angels
that he sent to help the Israelites in their return to the Promised

Guardian angels not only execute the will of God in our lives, but
they are here to support, protect us and lead us, if we choose, to
the Kingdom of God. They stand in between God and us. They work
through our intellect, imagination, senses and will.

Today, how aware are we of the angels around us? What are their
roles in our lives? Have they been guardians, messengers, or
perhaps the path that leads us to the Kingdom of God?

It is easy for children to trust. They are wholly dependent on
adults. They possess innocence and have a childlike attitude to
different situations. Perhaps the Gospel today reminds us that we
too need to have the same childlike faith, innocence and trust
towards the Lord. The angels may lead us to the Kingdom of God, but
when we have fully realized these childlike qualities are we ready
to truly accept his Kingdom.

We pray ...
- for a deep and profound respect for life, especially for the unborn.
- for the speedy recovery and healing of Manuel Go.
- for the personal intentions of the Santiago Family, Eliezer T.
Santiago and Emilia C. Santiago.
- for the health of Sabina Santiago and Epifania Santiago.
- for the safety of Emerson Lyndon C. Santiago, Noemi Grace
Santiago, Kristine Mae Santiago, Mark Zerryven Santiago, John
Sigmund Santiago, Emmanuel Vonn Santiago, Emille Joseph Santiago,
Maureen Joyce and Maureen Joy.
- for the personal intentions of Ronnie Constantino and Mylene
- for all the prayer intentions in the MTQ Dailyprayer Diary.
- for world peace and reconciliation.

Finally, we pray for one another, for those who have asked our
prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
