I just want to say that I am sorry I have not updated in a while. I have been extremely ill with the flu, strep throat, bronchitis and a ear infection! It has not been a fun time and I am just now starting to get better. I had planned on updating regularly during Holy Week but I was not able to and I sadly was not able to participate in any of the Holy Week activities. I am back though and a big thank you to all my readers!!
On Easter Sunday, Mother Angelica returned home to our Lord. It was a fitting thing for such a faithful Catholic to be called home during one of the most Holy times of the Church and to suffer much like Jesus did in her last days.
I have been to EWTN before and I must say that it is a very beautiful area. You can tell how Holy a place it is if you open your heart and allow it to fill you. I love Mother Angelica and the mission she started. How brave she was to go into seemingly “enemy” territory, the Bible belt. Sad to say but some of the most hateful comments come from those who claim to be Christians. They have a very narrow view of the Catholic Church which seems to stem from fables.
This little nun, with barely a penny to her name decided to start a Catholic radio station in the Bible belt. Not only did she reach those who were not of the faith but she reached Catholics who were just beginning their journey or who were within different lengths of their journey. She told it like it is; which is something that you may not want to hear.
She had a deep devotion to our Lord and Savior which is clearly evident in the talks that she gives. I recommend that when you get a moment, go onto Youtube and watch some videos of the talks that she had given. You will be glad you did and will gain a deeper knowledge of your faith.
