Question

Did Jesus have a guardian angel?

Answer

Since Jesus was fully man, he may have had a guardian angel. Some theologians believe that Michael the Archangel fulfilled this role. Scripture clearly records angels ministering to him. In his account of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, Luke wrote, “And there appeared to [Jesus] an angel from heaven, strengthening him” (Luke 22:43). Also, Matthew (4:11) and Mark (1:13) mention angels ministering to Jesus after he was tempted by the devil.

So, did Jesus need the help of angels? The Navarre Bible commentary on St. Luke answers, “The Creator of all, who is never in need of the help of his creatures, is ready to welcome, as man, consolation and assistance from those who can give it” (St. Luke, 240).
