Mother Angelica: The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracles
This is the extraordinary saga of a cloistered nun who used her instincts and $200 to launch the world's first Catholic cable channel. What began in the garage of an Alabama monastery is now the Eternal World Television Network, reaching more than 184 million viewers worldwide.
In 1981, a simple nun, using merely her entrepreneurial instincts and two hundred dollars, launched what would become the world’s largest religious media empire. In the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama, monastery, the Eternal Word Television Network grew at a staggering pace under her guidance. Mother Angelica (1923–2016) remains on the air, offering faith-filled advice, hope, and laughter to her audience through rebroadcasts of her original homilies. Raymond Arroyo, through more than five years of exclusive interviews with Mother Angelica, traces her tortuous rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, both outside and inside her church.
