This is a wonderful biography of the spunky nun who created EWTN – the world’s first Catholic satellite network. Today, the Eternal Word Television Network spans the globe, but her other works of evangelism include EWTN radio (also broadcast worldwide) and building Our Lady of the Angels Monastery and Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Alabama.
The author, Raymond Arroyo is a Catholic journalist who has known Mother Angelica for years. And, because this is ultimately a work about faith, you can expect to read how God called this little nun (and miraculously provided for her) to accomplish these great feats. As a Catholic, I admit this book rekindled that fire of faith in me. Arroyo points out that early in Mother Angelica’s life, she experienced a friendship with a faith-filled woman who bore the stigmata. That friendship enabled her to witness and expect God to work miracles in daily life. Books like this serve as a good reminder that we all need this. In God, all things ARE possible!
