St. Angela Merici Feast Day

January 27th is the Feast Day of St. Angela, founder of the Ursuline Sisters.

Angela was an amazing woman-one of peace and reconciliation. She said no to the Pope when asked to stay in Rome to start a group of nursing sisters.  Angelas was interested in working with families to make sure all received spiritual guidance.  This woman had a male secretary who scribed her writings for us.  Angela did all this in the late 1400s and early 1500s.  She was way ahead of her times.

Many Ursuline schools, communities, sisters,  colleagues and friends will be celebrating St. Angela over the next few days. 

On the blog Backlit with Joy, there is a special St. Angela video made by Sr. Elisa Ryan, osu and Sr. Jean Hopman, osu.  Try clicking it here to see if you get it-    If not google, backlit with joy and watch it.

We wish all our friends and family Angela's blessings of peace, reconciliation and following your heart.

Happy Feast Day to all!!
