AgreeMonroe: Tell me,is there some name, some identification I can use for you? I gather you have more than one I-There: We have whatever is needed at a given point. We've the brain trust, the think tank, the older brothers, whatever. Why don't you use one of those acronyms you're so fond of?

AgreeQuestion 504 (part 1): Can we ever know the name of our guardian angel? Answer: What value is there in knowing names you would not recognize? Do you suppose there are no spirits but the ones you know about personally?

AgreeQuestion 504 (part 2): But how can we call on a guardian angel, without knowing a specific name? Answer: Use any name you like-that of any superior spirit for whom you have an affinity or feel veneration. Your spirit guide will answer the appeal. All good spirits are friends and assist each other.

AgreeQuestion 505: Are the spirit guardians who take well-known names always the persons who bore those names? Answer: No, but they are spirits who have a close affinity with those persons and who therefore take a name that will inspire confidence in you. When you aren't able to perform a duty in person, you send someone in your place, who acts in your name.
