SAINT ANGELA OF FOLIGNO
This season's featured words from our saints are from the Book of Visions and Instructions of the medieval mystic, Angela of Foligno. Angela, who was born into a wealthy family in the Italian region of Umbria, was a Franciscan tertiary who, beginning around the year 1200 when she was a widowed mother in her fifties, is believed to have received mystical revelations which she dictated to a Franciscan brother. Soon after, she founded a community of religious women, devoted to charitable works and prayer, in her hometown of Foligno. She was beatified in 1701 by Pope Clement XI and canonized by Pope Francis on 9 October 2013.
