    So it was with Angela, who wrote to a spiritual son: "My son, if you were to see my heart you would be absolutely obliged to do everything God wants, because my heart is God's heart and God's heart is mine". This "dread" of hell corresponds to the type of faith that Angela had at the time of her "conversion"; it was a faith still poor in charity, that is, in love of God. The translation is a little iffy at times, but not too much so as to distract one from reading and taking in all that Blessed Angela has to say. Similar Books.

    The vision with darkness, however, draws me so much more that there is no comparison. Angela died surrounded by her community of disciples. She was a soul whom God chose to fulfill the role of a mystic. Only greater remorse followed. Her Friar confessor recounted: "The faithful woman then told me: I have had this divine revelation: "after the things you have written, write that anyone who wishes to preserve grace must not lift the eyes of his soul from the Cross, either in the joy or in the sadness that I grant or permit him'" ibid.

    This was because for Blessed Angela the experience of union meant the total involvement of both the spiritual and physical senses and she was left with only a "shadow" in her mind, as it were, of what she had "understood" during her ecstasies. Numerous miracles were worked at her tomb, and Innocent XII approved the immemorial veneration paid to her. If you want chastity, pray. This is necessary unto us. In these circumstances the actual historical value of his personality is apt to be obscured by legend and fancy.

This work, in Latin was complete by ; it has come to us as the Book of Visions and Instructions. People are usually fascinated by the consummate experience of union Angela of Foligno book God that she reached, but perhaps they give too little consideration to her first steps, her conversion and the long journey that led from her starting point, the "great fear of hell", to her goal, total union with the Trinity.

And my soul in an excess of wonder cried out: "This world is pregnant with God! Married at an early age, she loved the world and its pleasures and, worse still, forgetful of her dignity and duties as wife and mother, fell into sin and led a disorderly life.

It is also granted deep wisdom, great divine consolation, and joy. The interest in sanctity evidently survives theological and ethical pre-occupations. It was a situation which showed clearly that the one true Teacher, Jesus, dwells in the heart of every believer and wants to take total possession of it.

But she was afraid to tell her most serious sins, and so made a bad confession, then a sacrilegious Communion. She understood that it would not be her will to give her God's love, for her will could give only her own "nothingness", her "non-love".
