8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Sylvia C. Dolce on May 23, 2009
Format: Paperback
Querciolo Mazzonis gives a scholarly presentation of Angela Merici within the context of the Renaissance Church and women movements of the period. In this context, he shows how Angela Merici both embodied and transcended
Renaissance culture. This uniqueness makes Angela a women for all ages, a person with whom we can identify and in whom we can find ideals and attitudes for our own lives.

Mazzonis describes how Angela formed the Company of St. Ursula, original in inspiration, carefully designed, and governed by the consecreted virgins who were its members themselves.

I unhesitatingly recommend this book to women and also to men - lay and consecrated, those who already know and are seeking to embody the spirit of Angela, and those who never met her. Those who are familiar with her will find their appreciation and fondness deepened and enrich by this study of Angela; those who will meet her in this book may be surprised to find a good friend, as the woman who heard the story of Angela and said, "I always knew Angela; I just didn't know her name."

Mazzonis is an expert in his field.
This highlights Angela Merici as a leader
in her day and time in history.
Her approach to spirituality gave women
in her day a chance to be creative and
meet the needs of her day.
Angela is a heroine and saint of 16th century
Italy and all of Europe in her time!
