Mystics {21} ~ Angela Of Foligno

The life of Angela of Foligno, one of the most famous female mystics, is one of both tragedy and inspiration. When Angela’s mother, husband, and children all died suddenly, she became devoted to the work of St. Francis of Assisi. In 1291, Angela experienced a powerful vision while she was walking to St. Francis’s shrine on a pilgrimage. Angela was able to dictate her visions into what would become the immensely popular Book of Experience of the Truly Faithful.
