A Prayer to our Guardian Angel

O Angel of Christ
Holy Guardian and Protector
of my soul and body
forgive me everything wherein I have offended Thee
every day of my life.
And protect me from all influence and temptation
of the Evil One.
May I nevermore anger God by any sin.
Pray for me to the Lord
that He may make me worthy
of the Grace of the All Holy Trinity,
And of the Most Blessed Theotokos
and of all His Saints.
Amen

Synaxis of the Holy Archangels & Heavenly Hosts


The Holy Church, which rejects the impious worship of Angels
devised by idolaters and heretics of old, has received from the
Divinely Inspired Fathers the Tradition of celebrating the
Synaxis of the Holy Angels with reverence.
In the days of the Old Testament, the people of God, having fallen
away from their Creator, began to worship that which our Lord
created, making idols in the likeness of visible things, of that
which is in Heaven above and earth beneath - the work of their
own hands and when they offered oblations to the sun, the
moon, and the stars as gods, as though these possessed living
souls, they also began to worship Angels.
The Book of Kings mentions that they "...burnt incense to Baal, to
the sun, and to the moon, and to the twelve Signs of the Zodiac,
and to all the Hosts of Heaven..." i.e. to the Angels - for the
Heavenly Hosts are comprised of the Angels (Messengers) of
God, as stated in the Holy Gospel: "... suddenly there was with
the Angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host."
This impious worship of the Angels spread through many lands in
the days of the Holy Apostles, which St Paul sought to root out
when he wrote to the Colossians: ...Let no man beguile you in
voluntary humility and worshipping of Angels, intruding into
those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his
fleshly mind, and not holding the Head..." which is Christ - for
there were at that time certain heretics who made a show of
humility but proudly imagined that they were like the Angels
because of their abstinence and the purity of their lives.
These heretics taught that Angels were to be worshipped in the
same manner as God.
Later other blasphemous heretics taught that the Angels were the
makers of the visible creation and that they are more
honorable and exalted than our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of
God, since they are bodiless beings and they even dared to
called the Archangel Michael the God of the Hebrews.
Finally, still other heretics appeared, who devoted themselves to
sorcery and deception of the people, calling upon the demons
whom they served under the name of angels.
This heresy grew especially strong in Colossae, a city under the
jurisdiction of the Metropolitan See of Laodicea, where many
secretly worshipped the angels in an impious manner akin to
idolatry.
The local Council of the Holy Fathers that met at Laodicea
denounced this heresy, but while it anathematized and
rejected the heretical worship of angels, it decreed lawful the
Pious and proper veneration of the Holy Angels as Gods
Servants, Messengers and the Holy Guardians, Guides and

Festival held in their honour on 8 November.
Thus it was in Colossae, where the evil and heretical worship of the
angels had once appeared in secret, that the Orthodox
Christians first began to celebrate the Feast of the Synaxis of the
Heavenly Hosts of God.
Many splendid Temples dedicated to and honouring the Holy
Archangel, St Michael, were built there, such as the most
glorious and wondrous church erected in Chonae over the
Wonder-Working Spring where the Holy Chief Commander, St
Michael, appeared to St Archippos.
The Council Decreed that the Feast of the Heavenly Hosts be
celebrated in November - the ninth month from March, when
the world was created, since there are Nine Orders of Angels,
according to St Dionysios the Areopagite, the Disciple of St Paul
the great Holy Apostle of Christ who had been taken up to the
Third Heaven, where he saw how the Holy Angels of God are
divided into Ranks, and later told St Dionysios of this.
These Nine Ranks of the Heavenly Hosts are grouped into three
Hierarchies of three Orders: the highest, the middle, and the
lowest.
