MsRanaDee's Words and Stories extends sincere condolences to the Eternal Word Television Network at the passing of its foundress, Mother Angelica in addition to condolences to her family and loved ones. Words cannot adequately express how much EWTN has meant to your humble blogger. To honor the trailblazing nun and Women's History Month, here are three reasons Mother Angeica is a woman who made history
1) Mother Angelica founded EWTN as a cloistered nun.
A cloistered Roman Catholic nun would likely be the last person one would picture founding the world's largest religious media network. However, Mother's faith lead her to taking on this stereotype-shattering endeavor with $200 and a garage.
2) She founded an order of friars
Mother also founded the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, an order of Catholic friars. Let that sink in.
3) Mother shared the good, the true, and the beautiful.
Last year, your humble blogger made a post on how beauty can change the world (here's a link http://missranadee.blogspot.com/2015/07/how-beauty-can-change-world-in-less.html?m=0). According to the definitions cited, it can be argued that Mother Angelica's communication of the Catholic faith was a spreading of the good, true, and beautiful- changing the world.
