Angel..........July 5







"Make yourself familiar with the angels,
and behold them frequently in spirit,
for without being seen, they are present with you."

St. Francis De Sales

Friends,

The Italian words at the bottom of the card mean, "Angel of Blessed Angelico." The last two words may refer to the man pictured in the upper right corner. At the Daily Saints and Blesseds site, I found the following, which may be the person to whom the card refers:

Bl. John the Angelic di Pietro of Vicchio [Giovanni Angelico] [baptized Guido (Guy)] [better known as "Fra Angelico"] (Italian, Dominican friar, religious artist, died at about age 67 in 1455 [beatified 1982])

Fra Angelico was a famous painter, some of whose works can be enjoyed by clicking on the small pictures at this site. Fra Angelico painted many angels, as can be seen by scrolling down at this site.
