I received the book “Mother Angelica” by Raymond Arroyo for Christmas and it is VERY VERY interesting about her life and background. I knew some of it but MAN is this book filled with a lot of details and info about her. I’ve gotten a few chapters in and I will definitely enjoy reading it through.
I liked it, too, but I’ve forgotten very much of it. She’s a funny character, but was a very wise Poor Clare that had the spiritual gift, kindness, insight, and wisdom to help many souls.
There are a number of books written by Raymoondo on her spiritual wisdom and about her. The first really good thing I read by her was a little booklet from 20 years ago or more on the Value of Suffering. It’s very good, but I forget the exact title.
Hey “boo” GREAT to hear from you again. Hope to hear from you often here.
Yes Mother Angelica was one of a kind and I do believe every hardship in her life prepared her for the great challenges she was later to receive
Well, I should be around for two months, to some degree, anyways. Thanks for your kind words.
SO VERY GLAD whenever you can be here. You always keep things active and interesting here and I like your posts.
Thankyou, CJ. If I contribute anything good here, I’m sure it’s from God… Hopefully just a funny magic marker in God’s hand, I am.
I reckon it’ll be just 2 more years till Mother Angelica’s sainthood cause gets going. Rhoda Wise’s cause (she’s in the book) just went to the Vatican.
I haven’t read the book but I loved Mother Angelica. I used to watch her all the time. I sometimes still will watch some of the reruns of her.
