Construct a mobile of angels to hang above the table on October 2, the Feast of the Guardian Angels.

DIRECTIONS

It is generally agreed that all Christian communities, countries, families, dioceses, churches, and religious houses have each their Guardian Angel, and St. Francis de Sales wrote that bishops have another angel as such, in addition to their Guardian Angel. We can add more angels to the mobile on this day, one for each in the family (make them very simple shapes, recognizable by a sweep of wings), and write the name of each person on an angel. "Dear Angel, Ever at My Side" is a simple hymn for children to be found in the Pius X Hymnal, and a few days' practice ahead of time would prepare us to greet our angels with this at the feast-day dinner in their honor.
