Do angels have a teaching or mentoring role


I know that our guardian angel protects us. Can he or she communicate with us (through thoughts or intuitive promptings) to guide or teach us?

Is there anything in Sacred Tradition (early Church Fathers’ writings) that supports whichever answer you give me?


well, I suppose one reference, is the Guardian Angel Prayer, Angele Dei:
Angel of God,
My guardian dear.
To whom God’s love commits me here.

Ever this day be at my side.
To light, to guard,
To rule and to guide.
