WHERE ANGELS WALK, Jan 22, 2012, The Voice

Rose Williamson, of San Francisco, said goodbye to her girlfriend, who stepped off the bus and disappeared into the night.  The two young women had seen a movie together after work, and were taking the bus home, as they often did.  It was dark and by now the streets were quiet, but even though Rose’s […]


Extra story: Angels Come to Daughter, February 7 2011

Rose was getting ready for bed one evening, and had just turned off all the bedroom lamps and said her prayers. As she finished, she saw a radiant light, just ahead of her, a pinkish-gold color. Was she dreaming? Shocked, Rose watched the vision.  Where had it come from?  Rose thought of her mother, who […]


Story of the Week, Airport Angel, August 20, 2010

Just a quiet thought in this quiet time of year.  Soon children will be back to school, and we’ll need our angels’ help more than ever!  For now, let’s just take a moment to realize how helpful they are: Shirley Miller of Pittsburgh had received a phone call from her brother in Phoenix, which had […]

Hello, angels.  Just wanted to update you on the little boy, Isaac Frank, who you all prayed for after he was seriously burned in an accident this summer.  Isaac’s story will appear in their diocesan newspaper this week, written by his mom and grandmom, and if you could see a recent photo of him, even […]


Story of the Week, July 31, 2009, Angel in the Army

Dennis Fredrickson of Culver City, California, was drafted into the military during the Vietnam War, and like many servicemen and women, he believes in small miracles. When you’ve come that close to death, veterans say, it’s easy to recognize the hand of God. In fact, Dennis believes that the first miracle he received during this […]


Story of the Week 3/13/09

Hello, angel friends.  Just wanted to remind you that with Easter approaching, our people in Arkansas (the JoAnn Cayce Charities) will once again be arranging an Easter egg hunt for the children there, if they receive anything to give away.  I always send some stuffed bunnies from summer garage sales, but if it’s too late […]
