Praying a rosary to Saint Angela Merici for orphans, for those suffering from illness or those who are disabled? Let St. Angela intercede! St. Angela was herself an orphan at age 15 and soon after lost her only sister. She turned to God in her time of need and joined the order of St. Francis nuns. Upon returning to the city of her birth she began a school for girls and went on to open more religious schools. She is credited with mystical visions, for being cured of temporary blindness, starting schools for girls, and most famously for starting the Ursuline order of nuns.
