The guardian angel according to Catholic beliefs, is the angel to whom God has given the mission to protect, guard and guide every man during his life on Earth to facilitate his ascension to Heaven, I like to think Jesus comes for us as well. Or rather He comes and His angels along wit Him.
I was reading some angel quotes, one I disagree with and I won’t quote the source is that God takes someone close to you because He needs another angel. He could create one, He did, He did not kill people to become angels. He created them.
i am always amazed that people think they become angels when they die. We will know as we are known, although that I the love chapter, 1 Corinthians 13 and refers to experiencing Christ fully when we are with Him, we know Him and He knows us and we will know each other.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
Music is well said to be the speech of angels. Thomas Carlyle ( a personal favorite )
In scripture whenever angels appeared there was always one main thing that is mentioned: ‘to fear not’. Sahne Callahan, Joy Through Presence

But from the beginning of the Bible until the end of the Bible many people had a visitation of an angel and they weren’t even apostles. Bill Vincent, Glory: Increasing God’s Presence
