Saint Angela of Merici - 3 Cl.

She adopted the rule of St. Francis, and later founded the Order of the Ursulines uniting 'evangelical poverty to the merit of virginity'. She died A.D. 1540.


O God, who through blessed Angela didst cause a new society of holy Virgins to grow up within Thy Church: grant through her intercession that we may lead lives of angels, so that shedding all earthly interests we may be found worthy to enjoy everlasting hapiness. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son who livest and reignest...

'For I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.'
