Feast of Angela Merici, virgin, religious founder
Thrive and shine!
Angela Merici was a woman of faith and action. In 1535, she established a company of women devoted to serving Christ. Although it was customary at the time for consecrated women to be in the cloister, separated from the world, these women remained in the world. This new way of life lived by the Company of Saint Ursula thrived. Angela didn’t set out to be a pioneer but to follow God’s calling, wherever it led. In the spirit of Saint Angela, how will you respond to God’s call?
Today’s readings: Hebrews 10:1-10; Mark 3:31-35 (318). “Behold, I come to do your will, O God.”
