Security guard angel

Location: N/A

By: Brenda

It was a nice summer day so I decided to take a walk to the park downtown. I lived about 1 mile from it and took my usual route past the Cathedral. I was near the Cathedral when I saw a very frightening, intoxicated man walking towards me. A lady had walked past him and he tried grabbing her but she ran across the street. He was walking very fast towards me, waving his arms all around and yelling. I decided to cross the street but then noticed he started mirroring me and also tried to cross. So I prayed.."Please God, please protect me: and kept walking. As he passed me he just growled and kept walking, never once trying to grab me or even said anything. I then looked up and saw a security guard standing at the side of a public parking lot a few feet away. He smiled at me, nodded and said have a nice day. I have walked that route so many times and had never seen a security guard at that lot. As I got to the corner I turned around and the guard was gone. I continue to walk that route and have never seen this guard or any guard at that location again. I'm convinced it was a guardian angel from God who protected me from the man. I also don't think it was a coincidence that it happened in front of the Cathedral.

Teresa of Avila was a mystic as well as an active and effective disciple of Jesus Christ.

This insight lies at the heart of the teaching of the Second Vatican Council's on the Universal Call to Holiness.
