A Lady of Grace
Just Went Home...
Angelia Cecilia Flanigan
Born In Ontario Canada on June 22, 1914
Died May 2nd. 2008…
“For Love of God and Country
As a devout Traditional Catholic and for the love of God
she devoted herself as an Angel Of Charity…
On January 15, 1937 Angelia known only as Angela was
Accepted as a Registered Nurse by the Ministry
Of Health in the City of Ontario, Canada.
On December 14,1942 Angela was accepted at camp
Kilmer, New Jersey where she was naturalized
An American citizen and was granted the
Rank of Major in the United States Army…
She soon joined m.a.s.h groups deep in battle…
She recalled how the Japanese soldiers could be heard
Nearby while she assisted in several amputations to save soldiers lives all the while being in danger of losing her own or being taken as a prisoner of war.
She ended her tour of duty at the Philippine army
Hospital caring for so many soldiers and other military personnel. It was there that Major
Flanigan met the General…That is General Douglas Mc Arthur. The General came often to visit the many lame soldiers and
To show his appreciation for their service.
The two Irishman became good friends and Angela was always at
His side during the tours.
Major Flanigan received several decorations and citations
Some of which included the American Theater Service medal
Asiatic Service Medal, World War 11 Victory Medal.
Philippine independence Medal and more.
On June 1st. 1966, Major Flanigan transferred to the Retired
Reserve in recognition of her honorable and heroic service
And continued interest in the defense of our Nation…
This Angel of mercy did not retire but relocated in Orlando
Florida and occupied herself in the pursuit of helping and caring
For the less fortunate especially the elderly. It wasn’t long before
Angela would be caring for several of her neighbors and church members.
Daily she would call or visit them making sure they had food to eat.
She provided transportation and made sure they kept their
appointments with their doctors. She picked up their prescriptions seeing
to it that they took their medicine.
It wasn’t long that Angela heard about the little Chapel in Altamonte Springs and she started to come here since we had Mass four times a week
Shortly there after Fr. Ben came down with Parkinson’s decease.
(A form of paralysis characterized by muscular rigidity, tremor and weakness).
Hearing the bad news Angela decided to move in with father to care
The care she gave father was an act of Love and Charity and for
Awhile she still maintained a relationship with her other friends.
Soon afterwards Angela fell and broke her hip leading to a hip
replacement. Father’s condition got worst and his family placed
Him in a nursing home. Within thirty days Father Ben
Marcilionis died of starvation…
Following her hip replacement Angela recovered well but the shock of
Her fall and the passing of her priest led to Dementia and the
Beginning of Alzheimer's…
It wasn’t long that we realized that she could no longer care for herself.
At this time the greatest joy you could give Angela was for her to be
near the Blessed Sacrament.
A nursing home was out of the question and we moved her in the Priory.
Angela was with us for nine years.
The first year she was in a wheel chair and for eight more years she
remained bed ridden.
Major Flanigan was no longer the vibrant person that we knew.
She lost all her functions but never her smile.
For nine years she never complaint except once she called me a bozo.
Needless to say I have been called worst.
The biggest honor you can have as member of the Order of St John
Of Jerusalem Is to be called a True Hospitaler, and so it is for
Lady of Grace Kathryn Gauvin who for nine years remained
by the side of another True Hospitaler, Lady of Grace
Major Angela Flanigan
Major Flanigan never married and never had children
She lived like a lay nun
She lived, containing within herself a constant vigil of prayers.
She had what very few have today, the Gifts from the Eternal Father.
True Faith, True Hope and True Charity
“And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I
Will built my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail
Against it.” -Matt.xvi,18
Major Flanigan was not just a rock but a mountain.
A mountain of True Faith, a mountain of true Hope
And a mountain of true Love…
A Lesson for Everyday
Sunday May 11 we will celebrate the
Birthday of the Church of Pentecost …
Almost 2,000 Years ago and counting
It is time to establish a great devotion to Our Lady and to take heed
To Her messages…
“For those who seek my Son and I elsewhere know that we are not there
We are here and only where the True Sacrifice of the Mass is
Offered…In my Son’s Church there can never be any compromise,
It must be as He gave it to You.”
“I want everyone to know That the Vatican is controlled by
Satan, Free Masons and Communism.”
In the name of the Father
And the Son
And of the Holy Ghost
In the name of Our Holy Mother the Church of Pentecost
In the name of St. Peter the first pope.
“You are rock and on this rock I shall built my Church
And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
In the name of Major Angelia Cecilia Flanigan
I pray and ask all those who profess to be Traditional
Catholics not to fall prey to the devil’s ‘Motu Propio’
No one can serve two masters.
Pope Benedict made it very clear. Paul the six mass is the mass of
The day every day throughout the world.
Pope John the 23rd. Mass is to be a secondary option.
No one can serve two masters at he same time.
There is no problem here. We choose to be brain dead.
The Tridentine Mass of Pope Pius the V is the Holy Sacrifice
Of the Mass that Our Lady speaks about of which outside of there is no
Salvation. It is the Mass which consist of the Transubstanciation from
The Last Supper and whose creator was and is Jesus Christ.
Our Lady of Sorrow speaks
“For those who seek my Son and I elsewhere know that we are not
there. We are here and only where the True Sacrifice of the
Mass is offered. There can never be any compromise in my Son’s
Church, it must be as He gave it to you
The New Mass is an abomination created by the evil one.
A Traditional Catholic Point of View
First and foremost Angela left this world as a devout Traditional Catholic
She left this world as a Servant of Mary, as a Tertiary (Servite) in the
Confraternity of Our Lady of Sorrows.
She left this world as a ‘Lady of Grace’ in the Order of Saint John
She left this world during the Armistice of the Ascension.
She left this world on a First Friday and on the eve of First Saturday.
Angela received the Sacrament of Extreme Unction prior to her death.
Her balance sheet was impeccable. It is fair to say you can pray to her…
Farewell Gracious Lady
