a convent. Angelica has lived in the peace
of the convent for seven years. Her past
life was different. She was a young girl who
discovered the happiness of love. She has a
son whom she misses everyday. She has never
gotten any news from her family who took her
to the convent to cover up the scandal. Her
aunt, the princess, visits her. Angelica
just wants to know how her son is and her
aunt tells her that the child has died.
Angelica falls down on the ground. Later she
prays that she may not die in mortal sin.
Seemingly in answer to her prayer, the
Virgin Mary and her son appear in a vision.
