St. Gemma Galgani Reflecting
Gemma’s Guardian Angel would frequently appear to her. They would carry
on a conversation the same way as if one were speaking to his best friend.
Gemma’s purity and innocence must have drawn this Glorious Angel from
Heaven to her side. Gemma and her Angel with his wings outstretched or
kneeling beside her, would recite vocal prayers or Psalms alternately.
When meditating on the Passion of Our Lord, her Angel would inspire her
with the most sublime insights into this mystery. Her Guardian Angel once
spoke to her regarding Christ’s Agonies:
“Look at what Jesus has suffered for man. Consider one by one these Wounds.
It is Love that has opened them all. See how execrable (horrible) sin
is, since to expiate it, so much pain and so much love have been necessary.”
