Life of St. Angelina

Holy angelina- daughter of the Orthodox Albanian prince Aryanit. The residents of the Elbasan region were mostly Christians, so the girl was raised in Christian piety. At that time, the despot Stephan the Blind came to the Albanian region, who experienced many troubles in his life. In Albania, he sought refuge and security. Angelina's father sheltered him at home. The noble girl loved Stefan with all her heart and asked her parents for a blessing to marry him. From this marriage they had two sons and a daughter. When the Mohammedans attacked the country, Stefan and Angelina fled to Italy with their children.

Life of St. AngelinaSaint Angelina and her spouse did not live together for long - soon Stephen died, and after a while an unusual glow appeared over his grave - the Lord marked him as a saint and the body turned out to be incorruptible. Angelina, being a widow, was in great need. Caring for her children, she turned for help to the Hungarian king Corvin, he had mercy and gave her the inheritance of the town of Kupinovo, which was located on the Sava River.

The saint took the remains of her husband and went to this city through Vienna and Buda.In Kupinovo she laid the remains in the church of the evangelist Luke. The Hungarian king granted her title to the despot and the land to her eldest son, but the young man refused them in favor of his younger brother, and he himself became a monk.

In 1502, the youngest son died, and St. Angelina with her eldest son, taking the relics of her husband and her deceased son, moved to the Vlasch voivode Radulu. There, the eldest son accepted the consecration as Metropolitan of Vlakhozaplanin. After some time, he and his son returned to the Sremsky region, where the blessed Maxim became the Metropolitan of Belgrade. Together they took part in the construction of the monastery of Krushedol, which was named after the Annunciation of the Most Holy Theotokos.

In 1516, Maxim reposed to the Lord. The woman was destined to outlive her husband and both sons, who were glorified in the faces of the saints. For her good deeds and her golden heart, she was called her mother. Having preserved her worldly name, the saint took the veil in a monastery built near Krushedol, where she was buried in 1520.
