Book of Divine Consolation of the Blessed Angela of Foligno
By: Blessed Angela of Foligno (1248-1309)
The Blessed Angela of Foligno, T.O.S.F., (c. 1248 – 4 January 1309) was a Christian author, Franciscan tertiary and mystic. She was noted not only for her spiritual writings, but also for founding a religious community which refused to accept becoming an enclosed religious order that it might continue her vision of caring for those in need.
The Divine Consolation is divided into three treatises. In the first, Blessed Angela talks about her conversion. The second is her teachings. And in the third treatise, she shares her visions of Consolation, the Passion of Christ, the Sacrament of the Altar, and of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
