“AND WHO COULD RESIST HIM?” Last Counsel
Angela’s consecrated life of virginity, chastity, celibacy was a very positive, passionate union of love with Jesus Christ, her spouse, her lover. In this love all her other loves found their energy, their richness and their strength. Her love for Jesus was the center of her being. Her deepest desire for her daughters was for each of them to know, to nurture, and to experience deeply a love like the one she possessed with her spouse.
