Blessed Angela Truszkowska, Patron Saint of the Sick (Feast Dates October 10, 11)
Extract from October 10: Blessed Angela Maria Truszkowska: “As a child and adolescent, Sophia was drawn to prayer and genuine compassion for others. As a young woman, she devoted herself to working for the poor and needy. Her spirituality was strengthened by a deep passion for Jesus in the Eucharist, a tender love for the Blessed Mother, and devotion to St. Francis of Assisi. On November 21, 1855, as Franciscan tertiaries, Sophia and her cousin knelt before the icon of Mary and dedicated themselves to do the will of her Son. For the Felician Sisters, this day became the founding day of the Congregation. Every aspect of the life of Mother Mary Angela, Foundress of the Felician Sisters, reflected her concern for the spiritual growth of all people and care for their temporal needs. Her mission was sustained by her selfless love of God and desire to do his will.” See also: Maria Angela Truszkowka (Multi-lingual), Blessed Angela Truszkowska. VIDEO: Blessed Angela Truszkowska.
