Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman, editor of The Religion Network, a multi-faith Web site. This site provides inspirational quotes through an
exploration of a new spiritual theme every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Religion network is offered with the
conviction that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and furthermore, that finding the commonalities
among the world's religions is more healing than pointing up their differences.

Religion as an institution is a precious gift, blessing individuals and uplifting communities. However you choose to
worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.

"Guardian Angel"    Elvira Amrhein

Lord, give Thy angels every day
Command to guide us on our way.
And bid them every evening keep
Their watch around us while we sleep.

So shall no wicked thing draw near,
To do us harm or cause us fear;
And we shall dwell, when life is past,
With Angels round Thy Throne at last.

John M. Neale (1818-1866)
Lutheran Hymn
Verses 3 & 4


For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest though dash thy foot against a stone.

Psalm 91: 11-12
Holy Bible
King James Version

"Guardian Angel"   Ignaz Gunther

Every age and condition of life has its special Guardian Angels.
Infants have their Guardian Angels, who preserve them from
danger and guard their innocence. It has often been said that
no child would attain to maturity were it not for the protection
of his Guardian Angel. This statement finds support in
innumerable instances of mysterious
protection of little children.

Benedictine Order of Perpetual Adoration


Each has guardian angels before him and
behind him, who watch him by God's command.

From the Koran


I believe we are free, within limits, and yet there is an unseen hand,
a guiding angel, that somehow, like a submerged propeller, drives us on.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Bengali poet, Brahmo Samaj (syncretic Hindu monotheist),
artist, playwright, composer and novelist

The angels are the dispensers and administrators of the Divine beneficence
toward us; they regard our safekeeping, undertake our defense, direct our
ways, and exercise a constant solicitude that no evil befall us.

John Calvin (1509-1564)
French Protestant theologian
who developed the system of Calvinism


They for us fight, they watch
     and duly ward,
And their bright squadrons round
     about us plant;
And all for love, and nothing
     for reward.
O! why should heavenly God to
     men have such regard?

Edmund Spenser (1552-1599)
English poet and Poet Laureate

The Last Word:

So glorious, so pure, so wonderful they are, and yet
they are given to be your fellow-wayfarers, charged
to watch carefully over you.

Pope Pius XII (1876-1958)













































































Totally Random Bonus Quote:

Just as a flower gives out its fragrance to
anyone who approaches or uses it, so love
from within us radiates toward everybody
and manifests as spontaneous service.

Ramdas (1884-1963) India
