It was in 1670 when Pope Clement X officially established October 2 as the day of the celebration of the feast for the Holy Guardian Angels., party individuals angels of each person.

Opus Dei was founded 2 October (in 1928), at the feast of the Guardian Angels. The devotion of Saint Josemaría Escrivá to the Holy Guardian Angels, whom he saw as celestial protectors and messengers, He came from his childhood. He learned from his parents to treat the Ángel Custodio.

“Be confident with your Ángel Custodio. - Treat him as a dear friend-what is- and he will render you a thousand services in the ordinary affairs of each day”. (Saint Josemaría Escrivá – Camino, 562)
