Aside from founding EWTN and Our Lady of Angels Monastery in a rural area north of the Birmingham-based network, Mother Angelica built an adjacent Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and, with the aim of serving shrine pilgrims and her media interests, also founded the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, as well as the secular Knights of the Holy Eucharist.
On Christmas Eve 2001, the nun suffered a severe cerebral hemorrhage and never regained full ability to speak. The millions who have viewed her television programs, as well as those who knew her and worked with her, will not soon forget her voice, and many of her lessons. Raymond Arroyo, host of EWTN’s The World Over has shared that after her stroke, but before she went silent, one of her nuns asked Mother Angelica for a bit of wisdom, and she replied, “Who loves God loves everybody. Who hates God hates everybody.”
Catholic leaders and others are sharing their memories of Mother Angelica with Aleteia. See here.
