Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations and best wishes to Mother Angelica and her sons the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word, who celebrate the 25th anniversary of their foundation.  The friars, founded by Mother on the 2nd May 1987 - feast of St Athanasius, the Doctor of Orthodoxy, serve EWTN, while conducting various other ministries living the charism of their spiritual mother, Mother Angelica.    

Let's remember them in our prayers as they put themselves in the service of Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word, and his Church.  May the Lord make them prophetic through what they say, how they live and who they are.

  1. Amen!! I am forever indebted to EWTN. I couldn't imagine life without EWTN - it informs, educates, inspires, calls one to Christ in His Church and to holiness. And the theology and cathechesis expounded thereon is sound. EWTN has had special importance where and when Catholics have been otherwise starved of authentic teaching, preaching, liturgy. I've often thought over the twenty years that I've known EWTN that if our Bishops and priests in Ireland were to watch EWTN we'd have more Bishops and priests who served God fearlessly and led people to Him.
