Milestones in the Making

Yesterday on August 15th, Mother Angelica celebrated her 67th anniversary of entrance into religious life!! The solemnity of the Assumption, already a day of unique and triumphant beauty, is a vastly significant day to give thanks for Mother’s own ‘fiats,’ throughout these many years. Incidentally it was also the 30th Anniversary of the inception of EWTN, Mother’s unforeseen apostolate to literally preach the Gospel to the nations. More incredibly this proclamation of truth and love would be for you – for each individual looking to find and know God and the hope to which He has called us. It is completely fitting that these momentous occasions coincided with the Assumption of Mary, our Mother who has gone where we are called and headed, precisely because she lived the Gospel with her whole being and was preserved from original sin. Like Christ, who has gone to prepare a place for us, she has preceded us and is the one who lives in the fullness of our destiny. Not least of all, yesterday our Sr. Mary Michael celebrated 60 years since she first walked through the enclosure door, and Sr. Mary Regina reached 49 years in service to the Church! We give thanks for each of these spouses of Christ and all they have given to God. Eye has not seen, ear has not heard what God has prepared for those who love Him! (1 Cor. 2:9)

Happy Anniversary and may God continue to bless you all. You are all in my prayers.

A special thank you to Mother Angelica who was instrumental in me and my children becoming Catholic in 2007. Without EWTN I don't know if I ever would have come home to the Holy Catholic Church. What a blessing Mother Angelica and EWTN have been to me and my family.
Thank you all...

Belated congratulations to Mother Angelica on her 67 years in religious life! (wow, THAT LONG?)

And ditto to Sisters Mary Michael and Mary Regina on their anniversaries, too!

I think that Mother Angelica and Sister Mary Michael are the only remaining Founding Sisters left of the original group that came from Canton, Ohio in 1962.
