Question: Is there an angel for good luck?
Christians don’t believe in luck as the Chinese and Hindus believe in luck. Christians believe in a God who is a loving Father who made us His adopted sons and daughters through Baptism. At the instant of our conception, God gave each one of us our own guardian angels whose primary job is to help us go to heaven. Demons are angels who disobeyed God by their own free will at the beginning of time, and because of their great intelligence which surpasses human intelligence, their choice is irrevocable–once and for all. Misery seeks company: demons wants us to disobey God, too, and suffer with them in Hell for eternity. If God would abandon us to the power of demons, they can easily make a mincemeat of us as what happened to Job: his possessions were taken away, his children were killed in a natural calamity, and even his skin became filled with sores. The demons can also control our imagination and tempt us to despair. This would be a lopsided battle. That is why God gave each one of us our own guardian angel. If we pray to him often and ask his help, he will always be ready to help us and protect us, if it is for the good of our souls. You thought you were lucky that the car missed you by an inch or you were late for the plane that crashed or you were not able to read a magazine that would lead you to sin. But this is not luck; this is the work of our guardian angels. Thus, in times of danger, such as when you cross the street or make life-changing decisions, it is always recommended to pray to our guardian angels:
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side to light, to guard to rule and guide. Amen.
