Mother Angelica

Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, PCPA (Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration) was the founder of EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network). There were times, however, when that seemed not at all certain. She describes a period early on in the process when things seemed bleak. She said that, ”everything was going wrong … banks were after us, creditors … it seemed everyone was against us, the Church, bankers, lay people, everybody saying we can’t do this; this is foolish.”

So, she took her problems before the Blessed Sacrament: “I was angry, and I said, ‘Lord, I told You. I’m not the one for the job. Why me?’ And suddenly, as I felt this so deeply, I heard the Lord say very distinctly, ‘Yes, and why Me?’ I never asked again.”
