I love hearing stories about angels and seeing them depicted in artwork, like the statues on the left.
Last month I visited the Shrine of St. Joseph in St. Louis, the site of an official Vatican-sanctioned miracle. This photo is of the front altar--the altar of answered prayers.
I thought it would be fitting to use this photo to accompany this post about a submission call out from the editors of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels in our Midst.
The editors are looking for "101 miraculous stories of faith, divine intervention, and answered prayers."
Have you been visited by an angel?
Had prayers answered by an angel?
Received divine protection from an angel or guardian angel?
Witnessed a miraculous recovery?
Received news or a warning from an angel?
If so, you could have your true story or poem published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels in our Midst.
The editors want stories of "true wonder and awe from people who have directly encountered or received help from angels."
They do not want stories about "people who are angels because they do nice things or eulogies about loved ones who have died and are now angels."
Submission deadline is May 15, 2014.
Expected publication date is October 2014.
Authors whose stories are selected will receive $200 and 10 free copies of the anthology.
