~ Blessed Angela Truszkowska ~
Responding to the needy (especially neglected children and the elderly) Sophia Truszkowska, Blessed Mary Angela, founded the Felician Sisters in Warsaw, Poland, in 1855. The name “Sisters of St. Felix” or Felician Sisters was given to her first followers by people who saw the sisters take children to pray at the shrine of St. Felix, a 15th century Franciscan saint especially devoted to children. Felician Sisters are one branch of the Third Order of St. Francis. They have always sought to harmonize a deep spiritual and community life with dedication to diverse acts of mercy. The Felician Sisters strive to make GOD KNOWN, LOVED, and GLORIFIED.
God, our Father, you graced Blessed Mary Angela with a living faith and boundless love which she manifested in complete surrender to your divine will. By her prayers and witness may we strive to seek, to accept, and to fulfill your will in all circumstances of our lives. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
