The Life of Saint Angela Merici
Foundress of Ursulines
Incorrupt Body - Visionary
Peacemaker - Consoler
Bob & Penny traveled to Northern Italy, Desenzano, Brescia, Milan, Mantua and Rome to research the life of St. Angela Merici. She had visions of Angels ascending and descending from Heaven. She fought Lutheranism by teaching the young about the Faith.
“I want to become a Saint, because I love Jesus.”
The Church was in crisis! The Good Shepherd would not leave His lambs alone to be devoured by wolves; so once again God raised up Saints and other powerful men and women to save His Church.
Saint Angela Merici and companions
In the Fourteenth Century, God wanted the Papacy to return to Rome. He knew what was going to come to pass; the Papacy had to be located in the eye of the storm, to combat the forces of dissension which were bubbling beneath the surface, and those which would erupt in the Fifteenth Century and explode in the Sixteenth. God putting his chess pieces in place, raised up a woman, St. Catherine of Siena; 1 He groomed her for her mission and when it was time, sent her to Avignon to bring the Papacy back to Rome.
