You are right to be very skeptical: This section contains a list of Certified Mediums who have completed the Mediumship Mentorship Program facilitated by Doreen Virtue. See what Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says about mediums. The Catholic Church has a document on "New Age" that talks about exactly this phenomenon: 2.2. What does the New Age claim to ...

Of course. God does not have one oekonomia for Orthodox Christians and another for non-Orthodox. The Orthodox doctrine of guardian angels is witnessed in the Old Testament as well as in the teachings of Jesus, both of which precede the foundation of the Christian Church. The Psalms witness: He shall give his angels charge over thee, to guard thee ...

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that there is a guardian angel for each person. It is well to recall that while the Catholic Church does not confine its teaching to sola scriptura, there is scriptural support for the teaching that angels are assigned as protectors. Angels engage in a variety of tasks as described in scripture, to include ...

I don't think angels can be promoted from one order to another within the 9 orders. Simply because they are in that specific order by their very nature. Just like a dog can't be a cat or a Rose can never be Lilly. Also note that they are helping us to save our souls because God wanted them to do that, not to get "promotion" in their Job. After the end of ...

Interaction with a guardian angel will vary from person to person because it takes on the character of a spiritual encounter. There is some guidance in the Catechism that may help answer your question. TL:DR; The most likely way to speak with your guardian angel is through prayer. With the mind? Yes. With the voice? Yes. In other ways? Yes. I'll ...

Where does the Catholic Church condemn naming guardian angels? You can find your answer from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the sacraments Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, PRINCIPLES AND GUIDELINES: Popular devotion to the Holy Angels, which is legitimate and good, can, however, also give rise to possible ...

In mainstream Christianity, only Jesus is the Saviour, whom God the Father sent to the world to become flesh and blood to save humanity by dying on the cross. By necessity, the Saviour has to be full human flesh and blood. This Jesus is also the Son of God, which is another requirement for the Saviour, but no angel is the Son of God. In contrast, God ...

Anyone who performs an act of rescue or deliverance may be described as a “saviour” e.g., the judges Othniel and Ehud (Judges 3:9, 5) and King Jeroboam II (2 Kings 13:5). God Himself is called “Saviour” (Isaiah 43:11; 45:21–22; 60:16). Scripture also identifies Jesus Christ as our Saviour: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who ...

What is the origin of Angel of God prayer? Some have attributed it to St. Anselm, but that remains dubious. Angele Dei, also know as the Prayer to One's Guardian Angel, was in the past attributed to St. Anselm (c1033-1109), for it appears in medieval collections of St. Anselm's works. However, it is clear that this prayer was added to Anselm's works ...

Does the Catholic Church teach that modern churches have guardian angels? We even have a Feast of the Guardian Angels. But as such, it has never been defined by the Church, and is, consequently, not an article of faith. That every individual soul has a guardian angel has never been defined by the Church, and is, consequently, not an article of faith; but it ...

Worshiping the Angels is condemned by the Bible. Colossians 2:18 says "Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind". So we can not accuse Catholics of Angel worship. The actual term used by the Catholics for Angels and Saints is veneration (Dulia in ...

If we have guardian angels do we also have an assigned demon? The short answer is: Possibly. Some church denominations believe in the existence of Guardian Angels such as Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox, Anglicanism, Lutheranism and so on. A guardian angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person, group, kingdom, or country. ...

Jesus says of the little ones who make up the kingdom of heaven : Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:10 KJV. So, yes, I also believe that the children of the Father, born from above, redeemed by Christ, have angels (...

With regards to the question as to whether Luther believed that each individual has an assigned guardian angel, from his comments on the subject that I've read, he held that not just one angel looks after each individual but that many do, but whether he believed they're specially assigned to each individual is harder to assess. He held that different ranks ...

Why would one choose to pray to an Angel or a Guardian Angel over Jesus at times? When Catholics say they pray to a saint or angel in heaven, that means they are asking these creatures to pray for them. It does not mean they are worshiping the creatures. Now why ought we call upon the saints to pray for us? St. Thomas Aquinas says: According to ...

Why would one choose to pray to an Angel or a Guardian Angel over Jesus at times? That is a very good question. I am borrowing here from an answer I had given to a person when I was asked the same question about praying to the saints in heaven. I think the answer to this question is found in the Fatherly heart of God. God, as a father, desires to ...

Your question is answered in the text of its asking. According to the Catholic church everyone has a Guardian Angel. That is correct. (CCC 334-336) Two persons, one marriage What happens when you get married? Per the scripture you quoted "two become one flesh." That uniting during the sacrament of marriage is something that happens on earth, ...

I just read this last night doing the readings for our families Jesse Tree. Tobit takes it for granted that the traveler who is to accompany his son Tobias has an angel appointed to him by God Tobit said, “Blessing be upon you, brother.” Then he called his son and said to him: “Son, prepare whatever you need for the journey, and set out with your kinsman. ...

The Bible does not use the term guardian Angel, the term Guardian was added by mankind. That was added as a descriptor to separate the Angels described in the following Scripture from other Angels. Matthew 18:10 KJV  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my ...

Although the expression “guardian angels” nowhere appears in the Bible that does not mean the concept is without foundation. The Bible has much to say about angels, and there are plenty examples of how angels have ministered to individuals. Here are just a few verses that indicate the power of angels who protect God’s people: The angel of the LORD encamps ...

The Angele Dei prayer is at least as old as Pope Pius VI (1717-1799), who, "in order to kindle the fervour of the faithful to have frequent recourse to their holy Angel Guardian, granted, motu proprio, by a Brief of October 2, 1795", an indulgence.

At High Mass in pre-Vatican II missals, after the priest has sprinkled the congregation with holy water, the priest prays: Exaudi nos, Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus, et mittere digneris sanctum Angelum tuum de coelis, qui custodiat, foveat, protegat, visitet atque defendat omnes habitantes in hoc habitaculo. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. ...

I don't believe there are references to this as it is essentially a nonsequiter in the church. Two become one as in the decisions you make now affect both, as if you were one entity. You don't literally morph into a single body and become one being. So if you hold to the Catholic belief that a guardian angel is an angel (a created, non-human, non-...
