SM City San Pablo –Last October 2, 2016 , serve as the venue for the St. Paul Theater Guild in cooperation with Tota Pulchra Es Maria Artists Group brought by the SMITH Brothers the “My guardian, My best friend Angel Painting Contest” . Students from elementary, highschool and college level competed in an art making contest by drawing their best guardian angel interpretation.
A guardian angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person. . Belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity. In the New Testament the concept of guardian angel may be noted. Angels are known to be the intermediaries between God and man. Many people believe that God blesses children with extra care from guardian angels and that every child is constantly under the watchful care of guardian angels.
The art event aims to develop the youth to appreciate faith, to be respectful in words and in actions. The natural openness to faith that children have seems to make it easier for them than adults to recognize the presence of guardian angels.
Events like this teaches kids to communicate better in troubling situations-with the guardian angels they may use extra encouragement or guidance from their angels. The wonderful ways that children relate to guardian angels can inspire adults to learn from their example. Also this month October celebrates the feast of the guardian angels.
With the success of the event- the SMITH brothers hope that this can be done annually. The SMITH or the Secular Male Institute of the two hearts has always been a supportive partner of SM City San Pablo with community events. (NWR)
