Mother Angelica provides a Lenten surprise to EWTN employees

EWTN has provided another update on Mother Angelica.

Mother Angelica is doing very well. She received ashes on Ash Wednesday and thus began - along with the entire Church - "the great retreat of Lent." On Friday, February 27th, EWTN held its annual Lenten Employee Retreat at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama, about 60 miles north of EWTN's Irondale campus. A highlight of the day for the employees was the opportunity they had to greet the Foundress of EWTN, Mother Angelica, in the parlor of the Monastery. Mother was as excited about this as the employees were! Before going to meet with the employees, Mother expressed how much she missed them. It was with joy that she saw all the familiar faces and had a chance to meet all the new employees. What a blessing and consolation it is for her to see the fruit of her love and labor! She dearly loves all the EWTN Family and keeps all of you in her prayers.

Continue to pray for our Lord to pour out many graces upon Mother, the EWTN employees and their families, the Poor Clare nuns, the missionaries of the Eternal Word, and the many people who support this incredible apostolate with their prayers and gifts.
