PROPER OF SAINTS - The Feast of Guardian Angels is celebrated on October 2. It was added to the Roman Calendar in 1608 by Pope Paul V. Paragraph #336 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church states this regarding Guardian Angels: "From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. 'Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life' - St. Basil. Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God."
