Happy Feast of the Guardian Angels

I love this photo.  It has very special significance to me.  My husband and I were very involved in the Presidential race in 2008.  Not only debating and speaking on behalf of the unborn, but fasting, praying, attending extra Masses, confession, the Rosary.  We knew it was a spiritual battle.  We were never closer to the Lord in our marriage than at that point in our spiritual journey.  My son (at the time 5 y.o.) started having horrendous nightmares.  He said it was a hooded figure that was chasing him in his dreams and they got worse as time went on, the being behind the cloak was a ferocious demon.  His last dream he told me that the demon had cornered him, and had pulled a sword to kill him, but then a giant man came and stood in front of him and began to fight and defend him.  My son could only stand there and yell to the man "What is your name?"  The man turned a little and yelled over his shoulder "Michael!"  I had our Pastor come out and bless the house and give my son a special blessing.  He gave my son the above picture and my son, jumping up and down, exclaimed "Mom!  Mom!  That's him!  That's the man in my dreams!"  I still get tears when I think of this most special protector...
