Blessed Angela was born in 1248 to a wealthy family in Umbria, Italy.
At a young age, she married and had several children. During this time, she fell into a dissolute and worldly life forgetting her family.
After the deaths of her husband and children, Angela experienced a deep and profound sorrow for her sins and did penance for the rest of her life. Her devotion to the Passion of Our Lord united her to a wisdom to understand many mystical Truths. She died in January 1309.
Let us pray to Blessed Angela and ask that she give us a deep sorrow for our sins and a profound understanding about how those sins caused Our Lord unspeakable suffering during the Passion.
