” . . . one of the elders spoke up and said to me, “Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?”  I said to him, “My lord, you are the one who knows.” He said to me, “These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”                                 -Revelation 7:13-14

An Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy with Jeff Cavins


Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation


 Mother Angelica was one of the great American Catholics of the past half-century, a woman of extraordinary faith, intelligence, energy and determination.  In founding and growing EWTN into a major media resource for the global Church, she achieved things almost everyone thought impossible.  I had the privilege of knowing her and serving on the EWTN board for many years, and therefore saw firsthand the tremendously positive impact her work for Jesus Christ had on many millions of people.  She will be sorely missed, but she has left us an on-going gift in the men and women who continue the great service of the EWTN apostolate.
