Happy Birthday, Mother Angelica


Mother is 83 today. After listening to Raymond Arroyo's book, I have a newfound respect for her holiness, tenacity, and courage. Too bad she can't conduct Episcopal Backbone Classes for the U.S. bishops.

My only question about the update on EWTN's site: a mariachi band?

The link to EWTN's catalog goes to the large print edition of the book. Get the audio CDs if you can - Arroyo impersonates everyone from Mother Angelica to Archibishop Rembert Weakland. It's a hoot.


What's wrong with mariachis?

I just didn't expect that would be something Mother Angelica would want on her 83rd birthday...

There had been a birthday celebration some years back at which Mother was serenaded by a mariachi band - on live TV. It may be the same group back once more . . .
