If you did not know, Mother Angelica passed away on Easter Sunday at age 92. Her legacy in following Christ and teaching the Catholic faithful can never be forgotten. Like Bishop Sheen, every time she appeared on the screen and spoke you know you were going to be lead peacefully and sometimes humorously to Christ. She was an avid defender of Catholic Tradition and detested the tactics of Satanic modernism.
Watch Mother Angelica say it like it is!
But besides attacking the evils of the day and age to come she was a woman who understood what it meant to apply redemptive suffering for the love of God and for the conversion of sinners. It was reported that her health declined for many months but she wanted to continue to live.
She (Mother Angelica) once told her fellow nuns, “We don’t understand the awesomeness of living even one more day… I told my sisters the other day, ‘When I get really bad give me all the medicine I can take, all the tubes you can stuff down me.’
‘Why’d you want that?’
‘I want to live.’
“Because I will have suffered one more day for the love of God… I will exercise you in virtue. But most of all I will know God better. You cannot measure the value of one new thought about God in your own life.'”
Thank you Mother Angelica and Kiss Jesus’ adorable head for me!
