Angela Merici said ‘no’ to the Pope when asked to take charge of a religious order of nursing sisters. She knew that was not what God wanted her to do with her life.
On the way to the Holy Land, she fell ill and became blind. She carried on with her pilgrimage and toured holy sites with the devotion of her heart. She got her sight back on her return trip.
She was deeply disturbed when her sister died without receiving the sacraments. A vision reassured her that her sister was safe in God’s care and that prompted her to dedicate her life to God.
Prayer: Saint Angela, you were not afraid of change. You did not let stereotypes keep you from serving. Help us overcome our fear of change in order to follow God’s call and allow others to follow theirs. Amen
