Angelo Di Dio, Mio Custode Caro - Dipinto di Dino Carbetta
“Angel of God, My Guardian Dear - Painting by Dino Carbetta” …
Pope Pius VI granted a valuable gift—a partial indulgence for those with contrite hearts and devotion, reciting the Guardian Angel prayer: "Angel of God, my guardian dear, To whom his love commits me here, Ever this day be at my side, To light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen." The Catholic Church's celebration of the Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels on October 2 has deep historical roots. Catholics began honoring guardian angels as far back as the 4th century, and local celebrations date to the 11th century, influenced by ancient Jewish traditions. Monastic devotion elevated their significance, with the Franciscan order officially observing the feast in 1500. Pope Paul V added it to the General Roman Calendar in 1607, complementing the Feast of St. Michael on September 29. Pius VI also granted a plenary indulgence for those who recited the prayer morning and evening throughout the year on this feast, subject to customary conditions. Pope John XXIII emphasized the role of guardian angels in protecting humanity, and Josemaría Escrivá founded Opus Dei on October 2, 1928, seeing it as a sign of divine protection. The Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels symbolizes the enduring tradition of angelic devotion in the Catholic Church, representing divine protection and guidance. My artwork, "Angel of God, My Guardian Dear," depicts a guardian angel's unwavering presence, offering divine light, solace, and God's love in both joyful and trying moments. It serves as a reminder that guardian angels accompany us, providing guidance, protection, and reassurance on our earthly journey, connecting humanity to the spiritual realm.
