Guardian Angels



About three weeks ago a Public Utility worker was driving his truck along Hwy 395 when he hit a patch of ice and lost control. That's his white pickup on the left of the photo. It might appear that he was driving from the left to the right, but in fact he was driving from the right to the left and when he lost control of his truck it smashed through the guard rail on the far right where the group of men are standing on the road.

"Somehow" (and this is the guardian angel part) his truck flipped over the culvert and landed on its wheels on the left side, missing the edge by just a few feet. You can see his truck resting there on the left of the photo. Pretty amazing, huh?


Now take a look at the next photo to see just how lucky that guy really was!








If that guy didn't go to church before, I hope he starts going now!

Vertigo moment. I wonder how many people say the akathist to their guardian angel regularly? I know I don't. I suppose the idea of a guardian angel - a holy being whose connection with us subjects him/her to all our vileness - is one the devil really wants us to be forgetful of.

Fr. is too humble to announce this - so I will: You can hear a two-part interview on The Illumined Heart Radio program with Fr. Michael Reagan an Ancient Faith Radio next Sunday and the week following. The topic: "Questions Evangelicals want to ask Eastern Orthodox". For the information on times and pod cast:http://ancientfaithradio.com/

I researched it as best I could before posting. Recently, snopes.com has verified the photos, though the details regarding which highway the accident occured on are different.
