Blessed Angela of Foligno
Thirteenth Century Mystic - Passionate Lover of Jesus
Within twenty five years after the world was to lose the little, great Poverello, the Lord was to call forth a new light to brighten the world - our penitent Blessed Angela. In a city not far from Assisi, a cry would come forth in the night that would one day reach and touch some of the greatest Saints in the world, and now us. The seed had been planted by the contradictory Poor One and the Lord would not allow it to lie dormant in the ground. Like the Mustard Seed, a great strong tree would grow and having blossomed, bear great fruit. One might agree with such great Saints as Catherine of Siena and Catherine of Genoa and say that Blessed Angela was one of the blossoms from that tree that would bring a new, delightful fragrance to the world by her love story with Jesus, so like that of Saint Francis- her Spiritual Father.
We often say, when the Lord wants something... Well, I guess He has wanted the story of Blessed Angela to be told, as over the years, we have received requests upon requests from mainly Religious to write and make a program on this little known Blessed here in the United States. Well, we journeyed in faith to Foligno, Italy, not
knowing what, if anything we would find. But the Lord would not allow His sorrowful penitent’s story to remain under a bushel basket. Somehow, we have a feeling there is someone who has sinned, as our Blessed accuses herself of doing and thinks he or she is too unworthy to be forgiven, no less loved by the Lord. Does the Lord want to touch that soul and say, You are mine; I have made you and I will always love you?
