St. Angela Merici, in her writings said many wonderful things. As we approach her Feast Day on Friday, January 27th, I wanted to share some of my favorite ones that deal with her call that we are unified and care for one another.
“Have confidence and strong faith that God will assist you in everything. Pray to God. Depend on God’s strength. There is no doubt that since God gave you this great task, so will your God give you the strength to carry out. Encourage one another to continue resolutely the task you have begun and be happy together!”
“See how important this unity and harmony is, for this reason, long for it, search for it, embrace it, hold on to it with all your strength. And moreover, I assure you, that every request you make of God will most certainly be granted, and I myself shall be in your midst furthering your prayers.”
Let us embrace St. Angela’s words with open hearts and the desire to live them out each day!
