A testimony of Mother Angelica posted by @ncregister:
“My first exposure to Mother came during the late 1980s-early 1990s, when I served as the editor of the TV supplement of a large Massachusetts newspaper. We would receive press releases on programming from the Eternal Word Television Network, a fledgling Catholic network that was trying to make a go of it. I noticed that it was the only Catholic network amid a sea of Evangelical televangelist programs.
My second meeting with Mother Angelica came in the mid-1990s, when my wife and I were part of a group of families at our parish that undertook a successful petition to have EWTN added to our basic cable television system. We believed that EWTN should be allowed to counteract the poison of so much bad content on network and cable TV. We believed EWTN was good for families. And we were right.
My next encounter with Mother, and the most personal and profound, came after reading her biography by Raymond Arroyo. Dealing with a years-long, painful back condition, I read of her incredible suffering and her faith-filled response to it. And God, in his mercy, provided me with such comfort — and grace. This led me to a period of prayer that I don’t think I’ve since been able to match.
I always come back to Mother’s response to suffering when I encounter it in my own life. She taught me about pain and sacrifice, prayer and perseverance. She taught me what it was to be loyal to the God who inspired her and carried her. They are lessons I’ll never forget.
So my question to you is this: Have you had a “meeting moment” with Mother Angelica that changed you in some way? Please tell us in the comments below.”

Why Consecrate California?
To defeat the Culture of Death. For an end to Abortion, Euthanasia, and Natural Disasters. For the sick, the elderly, and the unwanted. For an end to violence, sex abuse, drugs, alcoholism, and sex trafficking. Together we can make a difference for our country and for our world! 🙏🌎🌍🌏🕊🇻🇦
More than 10 million California adults – or almost 30 percent of the state’s population – identify as Catholic, according to the Pew Research Center. Only five other states have a greater proportion of adults who are Catholic. But lately, a growing number of Catholics have left the Catholic church as they enter adulthood – a problem afflicting nearly all religious groups in the state. But why is this happening? For many reasons including Catholics not speaking up and voting for the right reasons, attacks on our church by political leaders, and most importantly, the watering down of church tradition. The state has also seen a sharp decline in the number of Californians who identify as Catholic and a shift from Catholicism to Protestantism. Only God can save us. He chose to do it through Mary. Join us as we consecrate California to Jesus, through Mary.
“Have you strayed from the path leading to heaven? Then call on Mary, for her name means “Star of the Sea, the North Star which guides the ships of our souls during the voyage of this life,” and she will guide you to the harbor of eternal salvation.” —St Louis De Monfort, The Secret Of The Rosary
Loving Mother of the Redeemer:
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful; O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me, Amen.

Mother Angelica, pray and intercede for our Catholic church. Give our people the courage you had… Complete trust in God and in the journey He took you through and complete determination in following that journey. We don’t need more wimps and we can’t wait for more leaders. We need to become leaders ourselves, we need people willing to speak the truth and unafraid of calling out higher ranks within the church, drive error away and respect church tradition.
“A time is coming when people will go mad and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad because you are not like us!’.” -St. Anthony
“Keep close to the Catholic Church at all times, for the Church alone can give you true peace, since she alone possesses Jesus, the true Prince of Peace, in the Blessed Sacrament.” -St. Padre Pio

“If you want to be holy, if you seek meaning in your life, start looking into your own life and attacking your pride in all of its many forms. God will give you extraordinary light and the ultimate reward of holiness. For your holiness relies not on what you do, but on what you allow God to do through you. Have courage. God will perfect you.” -Mother Angelica

In the early 1960s, Mother M. Angelica, a Poor Clare nun, cloistered and dedicated to the perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, fulfilling a promise made to our Lord, founded Our Lady of Angels Monastery in Irondale, Alabama, in the Deep South. In one of her early evangelizing efforts Mother Angelica began writing “mini-books”, short teachings on a variety of religious themes. As the popularity of these “mini-books” grew, her nuns obtained a printing press and started duplicating and distributing them worldwide.
Soon, Mother began receiving requests for speaking engagements, evolving into a video series of her talks taped at a local Birmingham television station. The Poor Clare nun, who knew little of the world of technology and communication, then built her own TV studio on monastery property in Irondale, which today is home to Eternal Word Television Network. What began 24 years ago as a garage-turned-TV-studio is now a state of the art audiovisual complex funded totally by gifts from individuals and groups and visited annually by thousands of pilgrims.
