There By Your Side

These words were published on Saturday, February 28, 1846...


“One of the religious truths which had made the greatest impression on his mind, was the existence of guardian angels.

"Do you see, Julius," his mother had said to him, "our good God has given you, and me, and every one, one of the angels of his paradise to protect and guide us.

One of those beautiful angels, as you have seen them in the paintings in church ; those angels so pretty, with their crowns of white roses, their robes of gauze, and their large azure wings, you know.

Very well, there is one there by your side; he never leaves you.

Our good God has made him invisible, that he may follow you everywhere, see you everywhere, and guard you everywhere.

As soon as you came into the world, he descended near your cradle, he embraced you as his little brother; he rocked you with the nurse, and covered you with his two wings that you might sleep tranquilly.

And now that your big, and talk as you wish, and act as you think proper, he is still there to give you good advice, to send you good inspirations.”
