October 2 is Guardian Angel Day

Americans have made a special place in their hearts for the Guardian Angels that protect and guide us all. On Guardian Angel Day, Thursday, October 2nd, Guideposts has made a special place to honor them online.

Most surveys show that somewhere between 70 to 75% of Americans believe in Guardian Angels. An even more compelling number was revealed in a recent Baylor University Institute for Studies of Religion poll that showed 55% of the survey respondents answered affirmatively to the statement, “I was protected from harm by a guardian angel.” What that means is that a majority of Americans have had actual experiences with Guardian Angels. These findings confirm that a very large number of people absolutely believe someone is looking out for them.

“Every single day we talk to people who believe they have had a truly angelic experience,” says Colleen Hughes, editor-in-chief of Angels on Earth magazine. “We receive hundreds of stories by mail and email every week, and publish the best – those stories that are the most comforting, the most moving, the most unique. If you’ve never read an issue of Angels on Earth, you can’t imagine the myriad ways angels show up in modern, everyday life.”

To celebrate this special day honoring Guardian Angels, Guideposts magazine and sister publication Angels On Earth have put together a unique online content section that presents true stories about God’s angels and humans who have played angelic roles in daily life.
