Item Description...
A portrait of Mother Angelica describes the influential nun's youth, her dedication to a cloistered order of Franciscan nuns, and her creation of the powerful, multimillion-dollar Eternal World Television Network. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

In 1981, a simple nun, using merely her entrepreneurial instincts and $200, launched what would become the world's largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama, monastery. Under her guidance, the Eternal Word Television Network grew at a staggering pace, both in viewership and in influence, to where it now reaches over a hundred million viewers in hundreds of countries around the globe.
Raymond Arroyo combines his journalist's objectivity and eye for detail with more than five years of exclusive interviews with Mother Angelica. He traces Mother Angelica's tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, both outside and inside of her church.

A Remarkably Well-Written Book About a Truly Remarkable Woman  Mar 15, 2007
I recently read a book by Father Richard John Neuhaus in which he proclaimed the good news that in his opinion the post Vatican II silliness was almost over. In this wonderful and heartwarming biography I find that he gives a lot of the credit for that to Mother Angelica. I agree.

This is the story of a woman who has battled the odds, sickness and several Bishops to proclaim through her network the true teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Her programs have been an inspiration to millions of people including myself and her story as told by Raymond Arroyo is even more riveting than her programming. I have watched Mr. Arroyo for many years and I have found that besides being an excellent TV host and interviewer he is a superb author. I realize that it would have been difficult to write a boring book about Mother Angelica but I feel certain that some authors could have managed to do just that. This author on the other hand has taken an inspirational story and made it into one of the most readable and enjoyable biographies that I have ever read.

The story of Mother Angelica starts with a childhood that never was. Almost from the beginning she was responsible for watching after her mother and showing the spunk that would later become evident to all of Catholicism she even barged into the mayor's office and demanded that he give her mother a job. Her powers of persuasion were already there too for the mayor did as he was told.

From her less than ideal childhood Arroyo takes his readers on a spiritual journey with Mother as she enters religious life and then heads off to the heart of the Protestant Bible belt to found a mission in Alabama. Once there the Catholic community welcomed her with open arms and checkbooks but some idiotic Klan types actually fired shots into the temporary home that Mother and the Nuns were staying in. Did that dissuade Mother? Of course not!

Arroyo continues with this remarkable story as Mother founds what would become the largest religious broadcasting network in the world in her garage. He paints a very clear picture of her struggles with money, very poor health and a gaggle of liberal Bishops who were determined to shut her down. It was not a case though of her not recognizing the legitimate authority of a Bishop or group of Bishops because as Arroyo points out, in the background the Pope and the Curia were not only on her side but were egging her on. I found it very interesting that after she blasted away on her program at a particularly liberal Bishop that a member of the Curia reportedly said that she was saying the things that Rome wanted to but didn't have the courage to say.

No fan of Mother's Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) will want to miss this book and I assure anyone who is even vaguely familiar with Mother Angelica that you will look at her in a very different light once you read this book. The story of the baby that Mother met at Lourdes alone is worth the price of this book and it helped to convince me that there is a future Saint living in the Heart of Dixie.
Indispensable Christian Biography of Cable TV Pioneer  Mar 3, 2007
Mother Mary Angelica was the right person, in the right place, at the right time for her Catholic Church. She was an abbess who became a CEO, creating, shepherding, and becoming the public face of cable's Eternal Word Television Network. While Catholics grappled with Vatican II's new effects and guidelines, she eagerly defended her Savior, His Church's authority and its oldest, most sacred traditions. She advanced only with faith to leverage satellite technology, personnel, and constantly needed funds to help realize Pope John Paul II's "new evangelization." But the vision wasn't hers, or even of the Holy Father she loyally served, but one presented throughout her life by Christ, who she called "My Spouse."

In this page-turning, dramatic biography of Angelica, EWTN newsman and host Raymond Arroyo stuffs more resilience, contradictions and miracle finishes than have any right to appear in one life, let alone one book. Early chapters find young Angelica (born Rita Rizzo) dealing with the financial and spiritual hardship of divorced parents, a fear-ridden Depression-era neighborhood, and her first among the physical ailments (and medically unexplained recoveries) which burdened and blessed her life. Arroyo wisely introduces two key points shaping Mother's beloved TV image: empathy with everyday suffering and strength (with the help of mystic Rhoda Wise) to identify her suffering with Christ's and with His divine presence in the Blessed Sacrament.

Arroyo introduces still more paradoxes. Mother Angelica leads a cloistered order, yet her business savvy helps her fellow sisters raise needed funds. Her early blueprint reading training joined a tough-minded approach with workmen (her "Tonys") and the at-times questionable people employing them, allowing her to build a monastery to minister and train African-Americans and the underserved American South. Her intuitive Scripture knowledge and sharp wit lead to more popular pamphlets, books, and growing radio, TV and personal appearances. The abbess then became a spokesperson for how Christ and the Catholic faith can heal those as hurt and abandoned as she and her mother (who became a nun and served under Angelica after her father's death) had been.

This leads to the most suspenseful yet moving part of the book, Mother's founding, building, and guiding "the global Catholic network," EWTN. Beginning with her protest over a TV show unflattering to the faith, Arroyo simply details the confounding series of events allowing Mother's network to plant and grow. These include six-figure bills paid in the nick of time to lawsuits settled for fractions of the cost, to multimillionaires putting faith (and funds) with a woman too faithful in God's providence to even maintain a budget.

Throughout her new role as American TV's face of Catholicism, Mother never left stopped leading her contentious but loving and loyal religious order. Arroyo allows you to feel Angelica's heartbreak in long, painful goodbyes to her mother and to close friend Sister Mary Raphael. Angelica staunchly opposes what she calls "the liberal church in America," leading her to a more reactionary, orthodox public image. She battles local and national bishops over this creeping influence, even seeming to challenge their authority over ceremonial portions of the Mass.

This eventually draws the eye (although a tacitly approving one) of the Holy See, but leads Mother from day-to-day EWTN leadership and to the contemplative life she enjoys today. Even then, one more miraclulous recovery and incidents at Lourdes' beloved fountains remind her, and us, how she remains loved.

Arroyo tries to be objective, referring to himself in first and third persons and attempting vainly to collect views (such as Los Angeles cardinal Roger Mahoney's) opposed to Mother's conservative, outspoken approach. But his love and respect for Mother Angelica, and his belief in physical and professional miracles she and EWTN witnessed, show throughout his writing. "Mother Angelica" is an indispensable, cinematically-told Christian story of a cable TV pioneer who, like history's most successful pioneers, walked through pain and by faith, not by sight.

When does the movie come out?  Feb 6, 2007
Well I just thoroughly enjoyed this book and think it would make a terrific movie. Saints come in all shapes and sizes, and I think Mother Angelica is one of them. I came back to the practice of my Christian faith through listening to Mother Angelica on the radio, and I must recognize that debt of gratitude. I heard Mother Angelica say once the simple statement: "We need courage today." A-men. And she exemplifies it.
Incredible life  Jan 5, 2007
One of the most inspiring books I have ever read. Her courage and accomplishments rival any fortune 500 executive, any president or any great figure of the last 100 years. In fact her life has had more impact than any other I can think of, except maybe John Paul II and Ronald Reagan. In truth, we would not know much about JPII were it not for Mother Angelica and her media genius.
Great book to show one's faith.  Jan 5, 2007
Having a dear friend who is a Nun in Mother Angelica's order, the book gave me some insight on how one's faith in Christ can endure and survive the hardships that life sometimes brings.
