A Good Read

I am halfway through Mother Angelica and am greatly enjoying it. A tremendous life's story, well told.

That's interesting: I've seen Mother Angelica on EWTN for years, but I'd had no idea that the network was primarily her creation.

Thanks for the recommendation, Stewdog. You're all going to laugh at me, but I don't think I've ever heard of Mother Angelica. I'm going to buy the book, though.

I believe that I first heard of the book on Laura Ingram, or Hugh Hewitt. While I was visiting my parents in the desert last week it was out. I picked it up and took off with it. I had never seen her or heard of her, but I am one "lapsed Catholic" who is enthralled by her story. I think my favorite tid bit is how she got the old "Dons" from her Italian neighborhood in Canton, Ohio to donate labor to the sisters. Classic.

I read her "Answers" book years ago. My favorite story -- and the only part I remember -- was about acquiring land she needed for her network. After several unsuccessful attempts to buy a certain parcel of land, she prayed hard for an answer and got one. Next time she meets with the owner, she asks him to give her the land. He does.

I've never seen Mother Angelica or EWTN -- no cable -- but from her writing she sounds like quite a character.
