The Catholic World Bids Farewell to Mother Angelica

Mother Angelica, the founder of EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network), died on Easter Sunday following a long convalescence due to a stroke.  Born Rita Antoinette Rizzo, Mother Angelica was a religious, who created a media empire and took the Catholic world by storm with her quick wit and zany antics.  

Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, President of the USCCB applauded her work, stating “she showed the world once again the vital contribution of women religious.”

John Allen, senior Vatican reporter and editor of Crux magazine, offered this poignant tribute.
