Mother Angelica, foundress of EWTN, goes home to the Lord

Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation and the founder of foundress of the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) died at 92-years-old on Easter day 27th March, 2016 after struggling with a lengthy effects of stroke. She is known in the United States as a nun who have uplifted the valor of the catholic Church.

She founded the popular Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) in 1981 with just twenty workers and the supports of few Catholic icons. But EWTN today runs twenty-four (24) hours, reaching an estimate of more than 264 million homes in around 144 countries of the world today, and having a workforce of nearly 400 workers.

“Mother has always and will always personify EWTN, the network that God asked her to found,”

“Her accomplishments and legacies in evangelization throughout the world are nothing short of miraculous and can only be attributed to divine Providence and her unwavering faithfulness to Our Lord.” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Warsaw.

 

“Mother Angelica succeeded at a task the nation’s bishops themselves couldn’t achieve,”

“She founded and grew a network that appealed to everyday Catholics, understood their needs and fed their spirits. She had a lot of help, obviously, but that was part of her genius.” said Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, who has served on EWTN’s board of governors since 1995.

 

“In passing to eternal life, Mother Angelica leaves behind a legacy of holiness and commitment to the New Evangelization that should inspire us all,”,  “I was honored to know and be able to assist Mother Angelica during the early days of EWTN. Over the years, that relationship grew, and today the Knights of Columbus and EWTN partner regularly on important projects.” “Mother Angelica was fearless because she had God on her side,” : “She saw what he needed her to do, and she did it! She transformed the world of Catholic broadcasting and brought the Gospel to far corners of our world. That witness of faith was unmistakable to anyone who met and worked with her, and generations of Catholics have and will continue to be formed by her vision and her ‘Yes’ to God’s will.”said Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus.
