St. Angela - Woman of Vision - Diane Fulgenzi, OSU

Posted 1/31/2020

On January 26, 2020 the Ursuline Sisters, Associates and guest celebrated the feast of St. Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursuline Sisters, with a liturgy at 11:00 a.m. followed by lunch and a special presentation.  

A guest speaker, Sister Diane Fulgenzi, A Central Province Ursuline, living in

St. Louis, MO, gave a presentation “St. Angela, Woman of Vision.”

“How is Angela a woman of vision for you?” Sister Diane opened with this question as she led the participants in a reflection on the “vision spaces” she drew from
St. Angela’s life. She identified three times in her life that were significant moments of “vision” – Brudazzo teaches us that vision comes in the midst of the ordinary and every day; in her blindness in the Holy Land where the importance of seeing is not just with our eyes but with our hearts; in Brescia, where Angela was living with the Spirit of God as a listener and a lover.

St. Angela listened in the quiet of her heart, to others and their needs and to the reality of the Church and world in which she lived. Angela, as lover, she valued relationships, was open and welcoming to all, and was simply present to all kinds of people with understanding, care and concern.

Sister Diane has a rich background in Ursuline life having been in Vocation and Formation ministry, education, knowledge of St. Angela, leadership in her community and other roles on service. She has recently been named as temporary Sponsorship Director of the Central Province.
