    How does one find out who your guardian angel is?One time I thought one could give his birthdate and it would tell you your guardian angels name,does anyone know how to find this info(maybe on internet)?

    I guess what I’m saying is everyone is assigned a guardian at birth to watch over one throughout ones earthly life,and I always wonder who mine is.

    I simply chat with him each day, most of us remember the prayer from our youth, “Angel of God our guardian dear, from whom God’s love commands me here, ever this day (night) be at my side to light and guard to rule and guide. Amen”

    I try to thank him each day. I’ve never felt that I needed to know his name. I’m happy knowing that God had simply made sure that there is a companion for me and that he will advocate for me if I remain faithful to God, and not abandon me but rather be a vessle through which God sends His graces. An advocate and soul intent on watching over me.

    It is not given to us to know the names of our guardian angels. God must have seen that it is not important for us to know this information here on earth. We have to wait till we get to Heaven.

    I think mine may have collapsed from overwork some years ago.

    How much validity does this even have?

    Very little.

    CCC 335 “… Moreover, in the “Cherubic Hymn” of the Byzantine Liturgy, she celebrates the memory of certain angels more particularly (St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael, and the guardian angels).”

    I believe, but am not sure, that the Church teaches we each have our own guardian angel, not seven who are shared amongst weekday of birth.

    The Catholic Encyclopedia says, [quote:2548q2tf]That every individual soul has a guardian angel has never been defined by the Church, and is, consequently, not an article of faith; but it is the “mind of the Church”, as St. Jerome expressed it: “how great the dignity of the soul, since each one has from his birth an angel commissioned to guard it.” (Comm. in Matt., xviii, lib. II). [/quote:2548q2tf]
