Guardian Angels of Future Children


#1

Hi all! I had a friend ask me a question about guardian angels. The question was do the guardian angels of future children protect their mothers until they are conceived?

My response, was that the Catholic Church doesn’t define a lot of specifics on guardian angels and that there are even disagreements among theologians on when we receive our guardian angels. Neither of us could find any “reliable” (and I use that loosely) source that expresses this as a possibility and I expressed some doubt on that idea. I wanted to know your thoughts on the matter!

I dont see would be wrong with the idea… especially when the child is in vitro, and believed by the Church to be a human


#3

I’ve read that unborn children are under the protection of their mother’s Guardian Angel. The child is given their own Angel upon being born.


#4

Guardian angles as given to every living human upon ensoulment. They are 100% focused on the person they are protecting.

I asked basically this same question about a month ago.

The answer: we don’t know.
