Angels Everywhere!

Wed, Dec 21st 2016 10:00 am

 

If you have ever visited Our Lady of Victory Basilica here at Father Baker's "City of Charity," you have probably noticed the many representations of angels in marble, stained glass and paintings.  I have actually tried to count all of them - rather unsuccessfully I'm afraid - since many of them are tucked away in unsuspecting places throughout the Basilica.  In his time, Father Baker used to tell the children who lived here how blessed they were to have so many guardian angels to watch over them! 

In addition to the many angels who populate the Basilica, we are blessed to have so many "guardian angels," like YOU, who, by your gifts and financial support, help to make the care for the children who live here today possible. 

Just as the Christmas Nativity scene would not be complete without the angels who announced Jesus' birth, our work here would be incomplete without the aid of so many "angels." Thank you and I hope you have a happy, healthy and blessed Christmas season!
