The Spirituality of Angela Merici

Brief resumé of the spirituality of St Angela Merici

The greater part of the life of Saint Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursulines, was passed in the 16th century, during the turbulent epoch of the Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation.

She knew, like us, a total change in civilization, an opening to a new world, a decline in faith and Christian morality, collapse of the family, yet also islands of fervent groups. Her spirituality was therefore forged in a time of crisis. In what might she challenge us today? Four dimensions emerge from her writings: Saint Angela lived and taught a spirituality which was Trinitarian, ecclesial, communitarian and apostolic.
