Blessed Angela Truszkowska  (1825-1899)

She was born in central Poland and contracted Tuberculosis as a girl.  She
was drawn to working with the poor, including street children in Warsaw's
slums. Her cousin joined in her work and the two made private vows and
consecrated themselves to the Blessed Mother. Their congregation grew and
they formed the Felician Sisters. Angela was Superior until health forced
her to resign at age 44.  The Order expanded to the United States where her
Sisters worked among the children of Polish immigrants.  John Paul II
Beatified her in 1993.

God shows us His goodness in so many ways. God has compassion on us as "a
man has compassion on his son who serves him." God gives us all we need.
"For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the
one who knocks, the door will be opened."

I pray that I may trust in the Lord's providence. I pray that, as God
listens and provides for us, I may listen and provide for the needs of those
around me.
