Daily with De Sales: 10/2/07

Francis de Sales had a great devotion to his guardian angel, and not only his own but those of his friends and enemies. When he had a discussion with Protestants, he silently exorcized the demon that possessed them and invoked their guardian angels. When he was absent from his diocese, he entrusted it in a special way to the care of its guardian angel, and never forgot to greet the angels in various kingdoms, provinces and parishes which he visited. In the confessional he often invoked the penitent's guardian angel. Even in his writings it can be seen how he recommended to his clients devotion to their angel.
-- A.S. X, p.2
