On the very day when we celebrate Our Lord’s victory over death, Mother Angelica passed from this life to the next. Mother holds a special place in our history and our hearts. She received into Religious Life Mother Marie André, Sr. Marie St. Paul and Sr. Mary Fidelis: clothing them in the habit of our Order, receiving their Vows, and guiding their first steps as PCPAs. We were privileged to witness first hand her extraordinary love of the Most Blessed Sacrament, her unwavering trust in the loving providence of the Father, and her unswerving dedication to evangelization (both through EWTN and the hidden evangelization at the heart of our contemplative life). What speaks with particular eloquence now, as we reflect on her life, is her heroic acceptance of suffering – how nobly and patiently she bore the cross with her Beloved Spouse! We are grateful for the example and the love of Mother Angelica and we pray for her happy and blessed repose. Rest in peace, Mother.
