Book of Saints – Angela of Foligno


ANGELA OF FOLIGNO (Blessed) Widow. (January 4) (14th century) A penitent of the Third Order of Saint Francis, born at Foligno, near Assisi, who after her husband’s death, followed by that of her children, sought God’s mercy and pardon for her past sins, spending many years in prayers and fastings. Her wonderful Book of Revelations and Visions has been often printed; and there has been issued a modern translation of it into English. Blessed Angela died A.D. 1309, at the age of fifty-one, and was beatified in the year 1693.
